The October 31st deadline for the Milwaukee Bucks to offer an extension for former 2009 NBA Lottery pick Brandon Jennings has come and passed and apparently the highlight reel point guard has made it his mission to prove to his current team that they’ve made a mistake.
The career 16 ppg and 5 assist player has upped his game in the early going so far, putting up a career best 17 points, 13 assists, and 4 steals per night in helping Milwaukee get off to a 2-0 start with wins over Boston and Cleveland.
He has already twice tied his career high in assists with 13 and set a career high in steals with 6 Friday night.
So far the Jennings and Monta Ellis backcourt experiment is working on the offensive end as opposing defenses have been stymied by two of the more potent offensive players in the Association.
With the game on the line and time running out against Cleveland, the talented floor general calmly sank the game winner…even though Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said it shouldn’t have counted.
