It’s a part of his game that will prove crucial down the road, but think about it for a second. If you had Jennings talent, would you ever do anything but drive by people and shoot three’s when you were in high school? Who could stop him from doing either? Sure, he probably had opportunities to work on the floater and in-between game in Europe, but it was hardly any more necessary there than it was in high school. He wasn’t getting minutes anyway and who knew what the NBA would hold. I’m confident he’ll straighten this thing out by the end of the year or by the start of next.
The Warriors have a good collection of talent, but nothing roping these guys together. The chemistry is terrible and it starts from the top down. Another team from the West on a long trip and another bad team. This has trap game written all over it with the Mavericks coming in Monday, but the Bucks shouldn’t be a team looking past anyone. Thus far I have no reason to believe they will.
This is a match-up not so dissimilar from opening night for the Bucks. The Bulls are going to look to transition and score easy baskets, as they have lots of athleticism and don’t have a lot of great half court players. If they are forcing turnovers it could be a very long night for the Bucks, who don’t have Redd to help them play catchup. Jennings shined in his first road game in Philly, but will be dealing with a much tougher point guard tonight.
