Brandon Jennings named Eastern Conference player of the week
This just in: Bucks point guard, Brandon Jennings has been named the NBA's Eastern Conference player of the week.
The last time Jennings won the award it was 2009, and he was coming off a 55 point performance against the Golden State Warriors.
Jennings has lead the Bucks to a 2-0 start, and has averaged 17 points, 13 assists, 3 rebounds and 4 steals in the process. His assists and steals totals currently lead the NBA.
Oh - did I mention Jennings buried a three-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday? It's been an impressive two game start for the Bucks, who will look to continue their winning ways on Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center against the Memphis Grizzlies.
As a team, the Bucks are leading the NBA in assists per game with a staggering average of 29. They are also averaging 7 blocked shots per game and 102 points. Is it early? Yes. Is it fair to say the Bucks have shown a glimpse as to their team identity? Absolutely. It's been a while since folks have been able to say that about the NBA team in Milwaukee.
