It has been a beneficial end of the season for Nuggets point guard Aaron Brooks.

Brought over at the trade deadline from Houston for Jordan Hamilton, the move was viewed as good for both players to re-establish themselves with new franchises.

Brooks, who will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, has made the most of what is an audition for the Nuggets — and the rest of the NBA for that matter. Wednesday, he had his best night in any uniform this season in the Nuggets' 118-109 win over the Pistons at the Pepsi Center.

It was the Nuggets' fourth win in their last five games.

Brooks is a shifty, clever player and all of that was on full display in a 27-point, 17-assist performance.
