Dallas at Milwaukee
Who can imagine that Milwaukee will win 4 games in a row without Michael Redd ? I’m pretty sure not too many people. But, amazing happens in NBA.
Brandon Jennings, the 20-year-old point guard scored 55 points and shot 21 of 34 in 40 minutes of a 129-125 win over Golden State on Saturday night, in his seventh NBA game. Jennings, averaging 25.6 points on the season, has scored a combined 87 in his last two games while shooting 32 of 53 from the floor. Thanks largely to their rookie’s heroics, the Bucks are 4-1 in the games Redd has missed.
Off to its best start since winning five of the first seven during its last playoff season of 2005-06, Milwaukee now tries for a third consecutive home win over Dallas (7-3). Last season, in January, the Bucks won against the Mavs with an amazing performance 133 to 99 .
Dallas is coming to the end of a road trip. They won last night in Detroit by 5 points. Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points and Drew Gooden added 11 with 11 rebounds in place of starting center Erick Dampier, who was scratched due to illness. The Mavericks shot 43.9 percent, but outscored the Pistons 46-36 in the paint.
Nowitzki is averaging 25.7 points on the season and 27.1 in his last 14 games against the Bucks. He had 30 in Dallas’s 133-99 loss at Milwaukee on Jan. 21, but 14 in a 116-96 home win over the Bucks on Feb. 25.
Overall, I see the Mavs a bit tired and Nowitzki playing at his best in the last quarter but I see a Bucks team driven very well by the rookie Jennings and it’s hard to believe that right now something can stay in their way.
