Milwaukee Bucks PG Brandon Jennings is on a serious surge.  Four games ago his marginal statistical production was poor.  Now, after two really good games, including last night against Golden State, Jennings is right back to the numbers he was producing last season.

More importantly, last night we saw a return of “Defensive Jennings”.  I think its fair to say Brandon completely “schooled” his fellow sophomore PG Stephen Curry. At one point Jennings picked Curry clean, took the ball all the way to the Bucks basket, scored the ball, and drew a foolish “+ one” foul on Curry.  If the game were being played on the schoolyard, Curry would have been asked to retrieve his jock strap from the pavement.  (Curry was generally abused all night long.  Bogut sent one of his weak finger rolls flying into Row 67).

Another player who is playing spectacularly well for Milwaukee is the uber-versatile Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.  His ability to successfully defend at least four positions, along with his really incredible rebounding skills for a player his size have been extremely valuable to the Bucks turnaround.  According to my game charts, Moute defended both guard positions and both forward positions at one time or another against the Golden State Warriors, and did a very good job in ever role.  Amazing.  He also found time to grab 12 rebounds.

John Salmons also continues his turnaround.  His offense is finely showing signs of life, and his defense continues to be solid.

One player who is not yet playing up to snuff is Corey Maggette.  I like his attacking style, but you also need to be effective, which he has not been.

    yeh, I figure Curry wants to put last night behind him as quickly as possible. the 4th quarter was ugly, but three wins is three wins.

    Fun note from the Golden State game: Bayside native and Nicolet grad Scott Bolnick reffed the game. He’s young, maybe 29-30 years old, and from my quick research, I think it was only his 3rd game this year. I remember he was one of the replacement refs during the ref lockout.

    Thought he did a nice job, overall. Only screw-up I noticed was the no-call when Bogut was hacked, followed by not overruling the ref who called the phantom goal tend. Other than that, I think he had a pretty clean game.

    Curry was awful.
