Was out of town this weekend and didn't watch the game. Ersan's line looked best so I put him first.

Ersan was really good, but Jennings dominated the majority of the game. His pace and control of tempo was arguably the best of his entire career, and his defense on the blazers perimeter led to the bucks huge first half lead.

Brandon played incredible. Should have had about 12 assist too, but our big men can't catch.

Either of Jennings and Ersan is a good pick. My choice is Brandon.

Would have been Ersan if he didn't get 4 fouls and got Boylan'd. Jennings for his good play all 4 quarters.

Would've been interesting to see how Ersan ended up if Boylan played him more but I voted Baddy. He was hot early, disappeared and then hit some huge shots when if got close.

He's had 11, 12, 13 multiple times each before but 15 is a new career high.

Ersan didn't really play much in the second half, and Brandon played a great all around game, including holding Lilliard in check until Beno tried guarding him.

Wanted to give it Illy, but it was Jennings.

Jennings was a great facilitator, ran a great offense… Just with average offensive talent around him, he would have had at least a dozen assists this game.

From the box score you would think Ersan but Brandon had one of his best games as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. He was penetrating all night, finding guys all over, not shying away from contact, finishing and 1's, playing hawking defense. It was beautiful to watch.

Ersan... 27 and 14 in basically 3 quarters is ridiculous. Jennings was more volume than anything else and the dude he was playing against was better then him offensively but played very little defense.

Did you watch the game?... It seems like you’re making an observation from the box score.

Offensively & defensively, Jennings was the complete catalyst for the team & he was real clutch to close it out… His box score would have been even better if he didn’t have to take some bailout shots & his teammates could actually convert great passes- he should have had 12-14 assists.
