The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Philladelphia 76ers Monday night by a final score of 105-96. The Bucks moved to 4-2, and the Sixers fell to 4-3.
The Bucks made their first 8 shots of the game. Then they started turning the ball over like crazy for a stretch spanning the first and second quarter, and let the Sixers hang around. Then the Bucks went on a run, Jennings caught fire, and they found themselves up 16 in the Third. Then more turnovers, and bam, game is tied up going into the Fourth. Then more Jennings on fire, and the Bucks put em away in a pretty entertaining game, with the Bucks withstanding lots of runs by the Sixers.
I think Jennings was pissed – Sixers guard Jrue Holliday(same draft class as Jennings) got a 4 year, 40 mil extension. Jennings, as we know, did not. Jennings definitely outplayed Holliday on Monday scoring 33 points, with 8 assists. (Jrue Holliday is a turnover machine). Most impressive about Jennings play, it was efficient. He went 12/21 from the floor, and only had one turnover. The Bucks shot 51% on the evening.
Random thoughts from the game:
1) Jennings had 4 steals in the game. Jennings is averaging just under 4 steals per game, and leads the league.
2) Saw an Ad for Henry Weinhard beer. Looks like it is made in Oregon and Milwaukee?? I sense another brew review coming.
3) Jason Richardson threw down a 360 dunk with ease during the game. It was a breakaway. I don’t know why, but this surprised me. I guess it seems he should be to old for doing that. Too old physically, and too old in a veteran sense. Once you’ve been in the league for a few years, don’t you just give it the basic one hander when you get a breakaway? Especially in a ho hum early season game? (of course, if I could do a goddamn 360, I would do it every chance I could).
4) Nick Young for the Sixers has a awesome ‘fro. It just flows in the breeze.
In other news:
1) Turns out the Lakers didn’t want to pay whatever the Zen Master was asking. Or they just didn’t want him, depending on who you listen to. So Mike Dantoni it is. Not sure how he, or his offense, fits with Kobe. Good for Nash, or at least the Nash of a few years ago, but not so sure about Kobe. The more I think about this team, the less sense it makes. Kobe is a ball control guy, so what is Nash’s role? Though, I think I mighta said the same thing about the Heat a few years ago, but I guess that is working out.
2) Memphis absolutely spanked the Heat last night. I love this Memphis team, and I think they have a legit chance to come out of the West. Really.

BEST OF MAXIM
MILWAUKEE --Just how good has the bench been for the Milwaukee Bucks?
Take it as you may, but there are a few stats that say it has been the best in the NBA.
The first stat, which is even listed on the league's website but isn't always the greatest measurement of success, is called efficiency and is measured by subtracting field goals missed, free throws missed and turnovers...

Milwaukee has only been 7-2 or better through nine games twice since 1983. With the Danny Granger-less Indiana Pacers...

The list of names in the title are subjects for discussion on tonight’s Careless Whispers with Matt Rury and Calvin Chamberlain. But what are the topics to match them? Is Mitt Romney the new coach of the Lakers? Will we be discussing the Milwaukee Bucks bench play for the Celtics? Was Mike D’Antoni suspended 2 [...]

Monday, November 12th: Bucks @ Sixers, 7:00 ET, NBALP: Jrue Holiday recently signed the four-year, $41 million extension that the Bucks elected not to offer Brandon Jennings. Motivation? I expect Jennings’ intensity to rival that of Kevin Garnett. The young man feels he has a point to prove this season, and I’m sure this is one of the games he’d circled on the calendar...
Brandon Jennings led the Milwaukee Bucks with 33 points and 8 assists in their 105-96 victory past the Philadelphia 76ers Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Jrue Holiday was simply amazing on the Sixers end with 25 points. But the real story was Jason Richardson coming back from an ankle injury to contribute 20 points and an insane 360 slam at the end of the first half...
Personally, I met Drew Gooden a couple of years ago when covering the Cleveland Cavaliers and overall, he's a stand-up individual along with being a quality NBA player.However, when this recent photo surfaced of Drew's head...it needed to be posted on this fine website: (Courtesy of Slanch Report)
We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Milwaukee.
I’m so tired of the NBA! Last night’s game was officiated like always! One of the leagues GEM teams comes in and gets all the calls in the 4th. Paul Pierce can go to the line w/out being touched but Illyasova got fouled in...
