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.

Going with Henson, he was the driving force in the second unit that brought us back into the game and continued to play well the rest of the game. Beno deserves some credit for setting him up on a couple of plays and Brandon deserves some credit for closing out the game.

I was at the game and it was Dunleavy imo, followed closely by Jennings and Henson.

Gotta go with Drew Gooden for not getting off the bench.

Have to go with Henson, he's playing so well that I am almost optimistic.

Watching that video again, Henson might be our best non Pryzbilla screen setting big man. At least if he can keep doing it like he was in that game.

Hard to believe Henson is right-handed.

The two man game of Dunleavy and Henson was really awesome to watch. Henson was my vote.

I didn't see the game at all, but I'll vote Henson b/c he had a big game overall and played really well to get the team back into the game in the 2nd quarter it appeared. Without that production there, the Raptors would've ran away with the game.

Dunleavy did hit some big shots again late. It's nice to have a guy that can hit those.

Anytime Jennings goes 10 assists I have to give him pog.

Apparently he was just named eastern conference player of the week.

Thanks for posting the highlight video.

His length is as ridiculous as some of the shots that he makes

He definitely prefers to finish with his left for whatever reason.

I imagine either through a coach or his own initiative he started heavily practicing using his left before he got anywhere confident/competent on his right. When that happens early in development it becomes the dominant hand for that skill.

I joined a team as a kid with minimal basketball experience and shortly after we were taken for a couple of sessions by a skills coach. He had us doing all of our dribbling with our opposite hands the entire time. I'd never really used my dominant left hand dribbling before so I became proficient with my right and it just became easier to use. While I eventually learned to use both hands to dribble and finish, my go to moves still either involve a right dribble to spin left finish or a right drive with a step through and left hand finish off the wrong foot. :D
