MILWAUKEE -- Out of habit, Brandon Jennings looked over at the Bucks' bench and almost yelled "Scott."
It's hard to blame him because it's been a long 24 hours for the Milwaukee Bucks. The day started with a meeting to discuss the departure of Scott Skiles and ended with a 108-99 victory that snapped their four-game losing streak and gave Jim Boylan a win in his debut as Milwaukee's coach.
Jennings played one of his finest games of the season, scoring 29 points on 9 of 15 shooting while dishing out nine assists and hitting on five of his seven three-pointers.
"I was just on a mission to get a win, period, because of the fact we've lost four in a row," Jennings said. "We didn't want to lose another one."
Just as Jennings hesitated to remember Boylan was now the head coach, the man himself had to do a double take when he realized no other coach was standing up in front of him.
But once he settled in, Boylan was energetic and into the game like the change was no big deal at all.
