Mason Plumlee had a successful rookie campaign and he was determined to continue that momentum into his sophomore season. Plumlee got off to a rough start to the season and early on in the year he already found himself in coach Lionel Hollins doghouse.

Plumlee was out of the rotation at one point, but eventually he worked his way back and he got a chance to start at center and never looked back. Plumlee has become a double-double machine for Brooklyn, Plumlee has 10 double-double’s on the season and with 41 games left to play expect that number to increase.
