Brewer has been a great perimeter defender this entire season.
As mentioned before, Brewer has been able to effectively impact games with his play on the defensive end.
According to MySynergySports.com, Brewer has played phenomenal defense this entire season, forcing his offensive counterparts to shoot a mediocre 35.5 percent from the field.
Along with this great statistic, he has also been able to jump passing lanes and pest ball-handlers, as he currently averages 1.3 steals per game. In close to 10 minutes less per game, Brewer has been able to keep pace with the team leaders in steals, Andre Iguodala (1.73 SPG) and Ty Lawson (1.56 SPG).
Besides Iguodala, Brewer has arguably been the team's most consistent perimeter defender this entire season. The Nuggets will have to make a tough decision on whether defense or consistent outside shooting is more important to the team.
