Congrats to Brandon Jennings - named Eastern Conference Player of the Week today for games played Jan. 7-13. #Bucks

Bucks PR ‏@BucksPR

#Bucks (Jennings 2, Ellis 1), Heat (James 3) and Thunder (Durant 3) only teams in NBA this season to win Player of the Week 3 times.

Only the second time in #Bucks history with 3 Player of the Week winners in same season. Other came in 2006-07 (Redd 2, Williams 1)

As I noted in the other thread, he and Monta simply switched places the past week. Jennings great. Monta sucked.

Hopefully this improves the trade value of both guys.

From NBA.com power ranking

Milwaukee (19-17)
Pace: 96.4 (5), OffRtg: 99.6 (25), DefRtg: 100.4 (7), NetRtg: -0.8 (16)
Interim coaches Bernie Bickerstaff, P.J. Carlesimo and Jim Boylan are now a combined 15-3. The Bucks are 3-1 under Boylan and scoring almost 107 points per 100 possessions in the four games. Brandon Jennings (65) has attempted just three more shots from the field than Monta Ellis (62) in the Boylan era, but has scored 41 more points (98-57) and dished out 10 more assists.


I knew he was bad didn't realize Ellis was that bad

Good, he deserved it. Also noticed his TS% is at 51% now, if he can get it up to 52%-53% in the next couple of weeks he might have a chance to make the All-Star team, provided we win games.

I was thinking he had a shot at it with his 30 pt games and a decent game Sunday. Now only if he could keep it up.

Congrats to him. I hope he can sustain this level of play but we've seen him have nice stretches before only to see him go on even longer rough patches.

Yeah, I'd sell high as well. I just don't believe in Jennings even after these performances anymore.

Seriously, how often is a guy in a suit at the end of the bench even guarded? If you can't hit an open man you're not going to make it as a PG.

Sell him before he starts bellyaching about missing the ASG. Otherwise Hammond might think hes unrestricted and let him go for nothing.

57 points on 62 shots? Monta Ellis have it all.

And a white suit... Maybe he was confused with home/away jerseys?
