Jordan Watches Jennings Shine

Michael Jordan was in attendance at the Bradley Center watching his Bobcats play the Bucks. Going into the game I would guess Jordan was hoping to see his Bobcats take care of business, but instead he saw a young new up-and-coming star named Brandon Jennings.

Jennings got off to a hot start in the first quarter scoring 17 of his 29 points, and claimed after the game that he didn't know Jordan was in the stands till the fourth quarter. Apparently it wasn't until during a timeout when Jordan was on the Jumbotron in the fourth quarter that Jennings realized MJ was in the building. The crowd of 15,578 (which I find hard to believe) was giving a nice ovation during the timeout. Jennings couldn't figure out what was going on till he looked up and saw Jordan's mug on the Jumbo tron. I know for a fact that if I was playing in front of Michael Jordan I would be real nervous. Jennings on the other hand is the man and played good enough to help the Bucks beat the Bobcats 95-88.

This game was intense at first, as both teams came out firing in the first quarter. Even with Jennings scoring 17 in the first quarter, the Charlotte Bobcats put up 25 points in the quarter and had a high percentage shooting. I think the injury to Bogut may have been a good thing, but only for this game. Starting Dan Grabnreach made the Bucks a running team, which helped in the first half. This gave them a chance to get some wide open looks on the transition game. Because of this, the Bucks built a nice 12 point half time lead.

The Bobcats on the other hand never really got anything going on the offense side of the ball after the first quarter. They shot lights out right away only to go cold until the fourth quarter. They did make a late run, but a Jennings fade away jumper from the wing sealed the deal for the Bucks. Charlotte was without their starting center Tyson Chandler also, and that hurt their year long struggles as the Bobcats still have not won a game on the road yet this season. Stephen Jackson, who played his second game in less than a week at the Bradley Center, had an alright game finishing with 22 pts, 4 rebs, and 2 asts. Lets look at some other highlights from another Bucks victory:

* Can't talk enough about how good Brandon Jennings has been this year to this team. He had another solid performance finishing the game 29 pts, 7 asts, 4 rebs. That will earn him the Bucks POTG again. He also kept the turnovers down Friday night with only 2 for the game.

* The reserves playing center for Bogut played well. No one really stood out but combined they had a solid game. All together they finished with 6 pts, and 11 rebs. I know those are not huge numbers, but they played some good defense. They might need to pick up the scoring a little bit but the rebounding needs to stay where it is. They also finished the game with a +/- of +18, which showed they had an impact while on the court.

* Hey Hakim Warrick, thanks for playing like you did in preseason. The only bad thing is it took nine games before you did it. He is going to be seeing more minutes with Bogut out of the lineup for a few weeks. He had a nice game finishing with 16 pts, and 9 rebs. Lets keep it up Warrick.

* One thing that has been working well this year is the Jennings/Ridnour combo playing at the same time. I really like how these guys play together on the court. Sometimes when a younger guy comes in the veteran doesn't play well with the rookie, or the other way around. Both Ridnour and Jennings are keeping their heads high though and working together. This combo has been a key on a few of the third quarter runs the Bucks have made this year. Skiles might want to play these guys together a little more each game.

* Gerald Wallace was the only bright spot for Charlotte Friday night. He finished the game with 22 pts, 10 rebs, and 4 asts. Wallace always seems to play well against the Bucks every year. Gerald is kind of an underrated player who doesn't get much respect because who he plays for. With his Friday nights performance we are going to give him respect here at The Bucky Channel by giving him the Hunter of the Night.

With the win the Bucks move to 7-3, and are tied with the Cavs for the division lead. Overall, this game wasn't a real test for the hurting Bucks Friday night. They play Memphis Saturday night, which I hope is not a real test either. They should be able to take care of the business against Memphis Saturday night before some real tests come next week.
