Brandon Jennings shined his second debut with the Bucks. The guard posted 16 points with 12 assists and 8 rebounds in win over the Grizzlies.
Per Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “I was nervous,” Jennings said. “I felt like it was my first rookie game again. Just putting on that jersey was a blessing and I was just very grateful.”
Jennings had joined the Bucks on Sunday morning by signing a 10-day contract. He started the season playing in China before joining the Bucks’ G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, in February.
“It’s just all the hard work I was putting in in China,” Jennings said. “People don’t understand I was still hurt with my Achilles injury, so now I’m finally healthy and I was able to really just revamp my whole self.
“I just was able to find myself again. I was really mentally messed up in the head because of my so-called career-ending injury. Just always wanted to bounce back from that. … I tried to get a lot of negative thoughts and things out of my head and it really helped me.”
