Brandon Jennings is Good

I don't know if any of you watched the Bucks game on Saturday night, but if you didn't, you missed perhaps the most incredible performance by a rookie in Bucks history.
Brandon Jennings scored 55 points against the Warriors, including 29 in the third quarter alone. I believe he shot 12 of 13 from the field in that quarter, a dizzying array of drives, layups, floaters, mid-range jumpers and three pointers. The quarter was capped off by Jodie Meeks banking in a shot from almost 3/4 court. All in all, the most incredible quarter of Bucks basketball that I've ever seen.
It reminded me a lot of the LeBron performance against Milwaukee from last year, where LeBron was hitting threes from 10 feet behind the 3-point line just because he could.
Honestly, that ranked right up there with the best individual performances that I've ever seen from a player on my team. Others that I could think off the top of my head of (in no particular order):
- Ben Sheets striking out 18 Braves;
- Ron Dayne running for about a million (or 350?) yards against Hawaii;
- Lee Evans racking up 250 receiving yards and a bunch of receiving TDs (5?) against Michigan St.;
- The Brett Favre game against the Raiders after Irv died.
I'd put that Jennings performance up against any of them. Unreal.


  1. I'd like to add D-Wade's game to beat Kentucky and head to the Final 4: 29 points, 11 boards, 11 assists, and 4 blocks. That was sweet. The game against Kansas was not.

  2. So in other words....

    Just call me Play I say, you gotta listen close
    If you don't dance to this, then you're comatose
    Cause I'm fierce, I'll pierce your soul
    Step back, relax, Jack, watch the heads roll
    A rhymin editor, competator competative
    So hyper you're gonna need a sedative
    Just take a hike on a bike when I'm on the mic
    Told you I'm a cobra, I'm ready to strike
    Administer, sinister, right, so savage
    Axe to the wax, I'm gonna do damage
    Like a volcano about to erupt
    Get set, I'm gonna wind it up
    I'm gittin funky

    I like the hair cut. Can he go back to that? And would that make Michael Redd "Kid"?

  3. Figures this would be one of the games my 1/2 season tix package DIDN'T include. Here I was all excited when I saw his 1st 30+ point game last week against the Nuggets. Then he goes off and drops a half-century on GS. Unreal.

    I feel much better about my 'ROY' pick for him on my post earlier in the year...

  4. Good thing the T'Wolves drafted 13 point guards before the Bucks picked and Jennings wasn't one of them.
