Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

Larry Sanders questions Brandon Jennings’ willingness to pass


Brandon Jennings said the Pistons could become Lob City under his direction. Of course, the first step of a lob is a pass, and Jennings has a reputation for being a reluctant passer.

But Jennings explained he’d pass more in Detroit, where’s he’s not burdened by the Bucks’ lackluster offensive options and can instead throw oops to Andre Drummond, Josh Smith and Greg Monroe.

Believe it or not, Larry Sanders took exception.

Andrew Gruman of (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball):


Count me among the skeptics that Jennings will pass significantly more often this season. It’s hard to relinquish being a top scoring option for a lesser role, even when players have the best intentions.

But if Jennings is going to pass more, Drummond, Smith and Monroe are better targets than Sanders. Sanders is a good player, mostly because his defense. Offensively, he’s still pretty unpolished. Drummond and Smith are athletic finishers, and Monroe has quality post moves.

Pistons-Bucks games will be interesting this season. I’m sure Jennings wants to take it to his former team, but because of Sanders’ quip, maybe Jennings will try to show up the Bucks by passing extra.

Yeah, right.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
