PHILADELPHIA - Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings, bent on putting his worst game of the young season behind him, scored a season-high 33 points Monday night to lead the Bucks past the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-96. "I was so upset with my game in Boston the other night," said Jennings, who was limited to four points on 1-for-11 shooting in Saturday's 106-100 loss. "I wanted to come out here and prove that was just a fluke, and have a short memory. That's something I was working on this summer."

He also had eight assists. "Jennings was fabulous tonight - lightning quick, hitting shots," Sixers coach Doug Collins said.

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...

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)

Alternate Title: Andrew Bynum Sadface
Line of the Night: It’s time to accept that Brandon Jennings (3.54) is an elite fantasy PG in this league. He might not be in the top 3, but he should at least be in the discussion when you talk about the top 5. Jennings led all fantasy performances last night as the Bucks took down the Sixers with a stat filling 33 points, 4 threes, 5 rebounds...
