Brandon Jennings has NBA’s first 20-assist game in two seasons


If you haven’t been paying attention to the Pistons, Brandon Jennings has excelled since Detroit released Josh Smith.

The point guard outdid himself in the Pistons’ 128-118 win over the Magic last night, notching 24 points and 21 assists.

It’s been a while since anyone posted those type of numbers.

Nash won MVP that year, and although Jennings won’t win that award, it’s easy to believe he would have gotten All-Star consideration if the Pistons dropped Smith a little sooner.

Jennings was dismissed as an inefficient, selfish gunner, but he quietly improved his passing last season. This year, Stan Van Gundy is bringing out the very best in the point guard.
