The B Jennigs Puts a Double Nickel on the Warriors (55 - 5 - 5)
For those of you that missed Brandon Jennings' record-setting show last week, NBA TV has a lunchtime treat for you. Jennings' 55-point scoring explosion in a win over Golden State can be seen again at 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Jennings' double-nickel performance marked the most points by an NBA rookie since Earl Monroe scored 56 on Feb. 13, 1968. He also set the Bucks' rookie scoring record, eclipsing the 51 points set by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor) during the 1969-'70 season.
He was two points shy of tying Michael Redd's single-game franchise record of 57 points. He became only the third Bucks player to score 50 points in a game, joining Abdul-Jabbar and Redd.
