I went with Ellis over Jennings and Dunleavy because of those two clutch shots and the free throws that iced it.
Can't wait to see the transformation in MCW's game under Kidd's tutelage in Milwaukee. I really think he's landed in a perfect situation in Milwaukee and is going to surprise a lot of people. Time will tell.

Ellis

It's like he's auditioning for free agency, which is fine by me.

I went MDJ because had he not come in and righted the ship with both rebounding and scoring, we would have been behind by a large margin (probably) earlier in the game. Instead before he passed the baton off to BJ3 and Monta, he had Milwaukee in an excellent position.

There were three POG players tonight.

Went for Monta because clutch shots are the most important. But Brandon did hit some huge threes towards the end too.

Dang, when I went to bed this morning Brandon was leading 26-17. 28-28 now.

Went with Monta to give him the advantage 30-29 over Jennings. Was at the game and witnessed the crowd's reaction to his one 360 attempt...that was probably the loudest/most hyped I've seen any crowd get in a short period of time, but that shot pissed me off to no end. So it was hard for me to vote Monta, but I thought he really stepped up his effort on the defensive end tonight, but it was still definitely a tossup between he and Jennings.

I gave it to Ellis for his icing the game at the end. Like everyone here has said Jennings was right there with almost identical stat line, but had the 4 steals.

Mark this down as one of those games both guys played well.

I know people will think I'm hating but hitting 30% shots are nice but they are still not good shots. We are just going to have to ride the variance with him I guess. Dunleavy was his usual self, Fatty was good after his awful defensive first quarter. Ersan tried his best to find his way into the game, Udoh made two defensive mistakes which was weird. Larry made two great defensive plays late but was a bit out of control trying to block shots he was never going to get to. Very good win against a team that hit a lot of shots.



yep. i voted BJ, just broke the tie - ;) 6-2!!
God is good.

Mike D was an ace in this game, but I am also loving Toby's energy off the bench.
Ball so hard.

I'm surprised Larry didn't get a single vote. That block was awesome and I wish I had a gif of it.

To be fair, Larry didn't really have a good all around game, but he was held us together defensively in the closing minutes.

It's been tied for 2 weeks now. I have no choice but to award co-POG to Ellis and Brandon:

Player of the Year

Image
Brandon Jennings: 2.5

Image
Mike Dunleavy: 1

Image
Larry Sanders: 1

Image
Samuel Dalembert: 1

Image
Monta Ellis: 0.5
