Brandon Jennings is getting a chance to show more of his all-around game, with Monta Ellis able to pick up the scoring and newly-acquired J.J. Redick able to space the floor for the Bucks offensively.
Against the Raptors on Saturday, Jennings showcased his ability to run the offense, and find his teammates for good, open looks.
Jennings dished out a career-high 19 assists in his team’s 122-114 overtime victory, though it’s not as if he needed the extra session to achieve that accomplishment. He had 16 assists through three quarters (surpassing his previous career-high of 13), and his total of 19 was the most of any Bucks player since Ramon Sessions back in April of 2009.
