Brown scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, but he was tasked with defending Joe Harris. Harris scored 21 for Brooklyn and made five threes. Brown said Harris was running like he was running from the police.

Brown also compared Harris’ speed and endurance to that of Forrest Gump.

The Gump comparison may sound like a knock, but based strictly on running, it’s positive.

Harris has blossomed with the Nets. He’s made over 40 percent of his threes each of the past three seasons, topping out at 47.4 percent last season. Maybe his ability to outlast and tire out opponents plays a role in that.
