Milwaukee Bucks (9-9) vs. Brooklyn Nets (11-7)
Brandon Jennings has not always been quiet in his career. His career started a year early as he and Sonny Vaccaro launched an aggressive and surprising move to go to Italy instead of play the obligatory year in college. Jennings' gunner style did not quite fit Euroleague and it caused him to slip in the Draft some.
A good rookie year followed by an inconsistent sophomore year left him without a contract extension this offseason and entering a contract year.
Jennings has changed from those early days though and he is playing a much different game now. It is much more measured now. But Jennings can still gun when he needs to and has had some solid performances so far this season. His scoring numbers are down (although he is shooting the ball better than he did last year) but his assist rate is better than 28 percent, his best since his rookie season.
More importantly, the Bucks are playing surprisingly well at...
BEST OF MAXIM
When Larry Sanders said he wanted to start a block party this season, he wasn't messing around.
After a four block performance Sunday in Brooklyn, Sanders is now the NBA's leader in blocked shots per game at 3.11, passing Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka.
In his last six games, Sanders has 32 blocked shots (5.3 per game), the same number Milwaukee's opponents have blocked...
Bucks forward Ekpe Udoh left Sunday's 97-88 victory in Brooklyn with left wrist pain and did not return.
Udoh came out after committing a shooting foul on Nets center Andray Blatche with 9:33 left in the second quarter, finishing with three points, two assists and two blocks in 12 minutes.
Inserted into the starting lineup last Saturday, Udoh entered Sunday's game averaging...
Brandon Jennings scored 26 points, Monta Ellis had 24 points and the Milwaukee Bucks withstood Brooklyn's fourth-quarter rally in a 97-88 victory over the Nets on Sunday night.
The Bucks led by 29 points with 6:59 left in the third quarter but Brooklyn got within six after Deron Williams found an open Kris Humphries, who came off the bench for the first time this season, for...
MILWAUKEE -- Coaches don't wear uniforms. So, Marquette coach Buzz Williams needed a way to pay homage to former MU coach Rick Majerus.
What he came up with was pretty meaningful. Tossing off his usual coat and tie, Williams wore Majerus' trademark black turtleneck.
"I wanted to be respectful," Williams said. "I just wanted to have it be as a tribute. Our...
Monta Ellis is shooting just 38.9 percent this season.
The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the New Jersey Nets on Sunday. The Nets almost erased a 29 point deficit, but the Bucks hit some timely shots, and held on to win 97-88. The Bucks move to 10-9 on the year. Jennings finished with 26pts, 7assists, and 5 steals.
Positives: The Bucks ability to block shots resulted in the Nets never being able to find an offensive rhythm. The team had...
NEW YORK - The game was only four minutes old Sunday night, but it looked as if the Brooklyn Nets were going to run the Milwaukee Bucks right out of the Barclays Center. The Nets, who have been struggling of late, jumped out to an 11-2 lead, doing a little bit of everything to secure that lead. It caused Bucks head coach Scott Skiles to call a timeout and address his team. ...
The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night, 108-93. The Bucks controlled this one from the start. They took a 15 point lead in the first, and they never let the Bobcats make a serious run. The Bucks were without Udrih and Dunleavy again, but they got solid contributions from everyone, and actually looked like they found an identity with their lineup (despite...
Maybe a new home and look will get the Brooklyn Nets over the hump against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Nets go for their first win in this series in nearly four years as they host the Bucks on Sunday night.
Milwaukee has won the past 11 meetings, with its last loss coming March 3, 2009, but those all came when the Nets were based in New Jersey. Those games also were before Brooklyn...
With another strong offensive performance from Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, the Milwaukee Bucks should have a good chance to match their longest winning streak of the season Wednesday night.
The backcourt duo can help the Bucks to a third consecutive victory as they try to avoid a third straight loss to the visiting Sacramento Kings.
Jennings scored 26 points and Ellis added...
As is often the case with NBA scheduling, mercy is in short supply. The guys have been dealing with some especially hard knocks of late. Perhaps, the scheduling gods thought, the time is ripe for an away/home back-to-back. Starting things off is a trip up to Milwaukee for a game against the streaking Bucks. Luckily for the Bobcats, the “Deer” have been streaking in the same direction...
