As auditions go, Aaron Brooks is delivering a timely performance.

Stuck on the bench in Houston two months ago, Brooks has made the most of his opportunity with the Nuggets after agreeing to waive his no-trade clause to come to Denver on Feb. 20.

Coming off a 24-point, 15-assist, eight-rebound performance against the Rockets on Sunday, Brooks is averaging 12.1 points and 5.0 assists in 24 games with Denver. He averaged 7.0 points and 1.9 assists in 43 games with Houston.

Last summer, Nuggets coach Brian Shaw traveled to Springfield, Mass., to see longtime friend Gary Payton inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

This year, it will be Denver assistant general manager Arturas Karnisovas’ turn.

Karnisovas plans to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony in August in support of former Olympic teammate Sarunas Marciulionis, who was among the Class of 2014 announced Monday.

A pair of 21-year-olds provided a glimpse of their potential Sunday in Houston.

The finish line is in sight.

After two days off to start the week, the Nuggets play three games in four nights as part of a final push toward the conclusion of the 2013-14 season.
