Brandon Jennings is currently in the midst of the best statistical season of his young career. Through 18 games, the Milwaukee Bucks’ point guard is averaging 17 points and 6 assists a game.
His play helped the Bucks get off to a hot start, but they have struggled in the last few weeks, going 3-7 in their last 10 games. Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, Jennings helped the Bucks to a much-needed win. He had a team high 8 assists, including two nifty wrap around passes.
On both occasions, Jennings drove the lane, making the Bobcats defenders come over to play help defense. Then, with both himself and the defense in the air, he wrapped the ball around the bodies of the Bobcats’ big men to find an open teammate.
Mid-way through the third quarter, he found Larry Sanders for a slam.
His second effort, early in the fourth quarter gave Ersan Ilyasova an easy layup.
