Corey Brewer sat down with James Herbert of CBS's Eye on Basketball for a quick Q&A session. Here are some highlights from the Houston Rockets swingman.

On free agency:

I felt I had a pretty good year and I was hoping to cash in on the year I had and it worked out perfect for me. I was happy to come back to Houston.

I know all athletes do say that, would it have been the same case had he signed in Moscow?

Yeah, the No. 1 option was to come back to Houston. I had some looks from other teams, some offers from other teams, but all in all I wanted to come back to Houston. I feel like this is a good situation for me. I really have a chance to win a title here.

The Rockets are definitely one of the three favorite teams to win the Western Conference this season, the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs being the others.

Especially now that we got Ty Lawson. I feel like we're going to be a really good team.

I know how to play with him and I love the way he plays because he plays fast like I do and he's going to push the pace, push the tempo.

I thought the Rockets definitely needed a better table setter to take some pressure off James Harden and a point guard who could consistently get the ball into the post for Dwight Howard.  Lawson can also slash, creating open open outside shots, drop passes to the bigs in the lane.  It's going to be a big difference overall.

On the second best game of his career:

Second-best game, probably I'd have to say, it's probably the Game 6 we just had against the Clippers when we came back from 19 down. Just because it was in the playoffs, we lose we go home.

51-point game aside, I'd rank this one as his best ever.
