Brandon Jennings was held scoreless (0-3) through 17 minutes and a Jrue Holiday blow by for a layup early in the third quarter appeared to be the final straw. Jim Boylan benched Jennings for the remainder of the second half, a move he was not pleased with, claiming postgame that he’s being “singled out.” The Bucks went on to lose to the Sixers, 100-92.
According to Charles F. Gardner, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
“I don’t see any all-stars in this locker room so I think everybody should be held accountable, like anybody else. There’s no maxed-out players in this locker room; there’s no all-stars. So don’t try to put me on a pedestal and just give everybody else the freedom to do whatever they want.”
Jennings said he feels he is being singled out.
“Of course,” he said. “This is the third time [being benched in the second half under coach Boylan] has happened. We had a sluggish start but we still had a chance to win it. It was there for us to take.”
