Marcus Thornton has been wildly inconsistent this year. With the Kings he had a 42 point outburst bookended by streaks of horrible games. And he hasn’t done much better with the Nets, alternating between good games like this and games where he scores under five.
He’s always been a streaky shooter, so I guess this is to be expected. He’s not a guy who you can count on to put up points all the time. He’s the kind of guy where if he gets hot you let him shoot it a ton and if he’s cold you just put him on the bench and wait until next game.
