Brandon Jennings PG DET 6 Days
Brandon Jennings scored 17 points in Sunday's 116-107 loss to the Raptors to go with three boards, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 6-of-18 from the field.
His field goal attempts were greater than his point total today, which has become old hat for the NBA's worst shooter based on field goal percentage. Jennings does rank a respectable 12th in assist:turnover ratio this season, but he still has a lot of work to do as a floor general and running an offense. The Pistons rank 24th in assists per game despite ranking eighth in the NBA in field goals per game.

Brandon Jennings shot 5-of-17 from the field against the Cavs on Wednesday, scoring a total of 17 points with one board, seven assists, four turnovers and one 3-pointer.
He didn't make his first field goal until the second half and currently ranks dead last among qualifiers for field goal percentage. Jennings has taken the 26th-most shots in the NBA this season, so his ineptitude in scoring the ball with respect to efficiency is unmatched. His offensive game needs a makeover.

Brandon Jennings has been fined $5,000 for flopping in Monday's game vs. the Bucks, his second violation of the season.
The video is attached and there's no way Jennings could contest the charge, as he's clearly angling for a foul, drops to the floor after slight contact which he caused, and then reaches toward his mouth as though he'd been hit in the face. It's good comedy relief, if nothing else. Jennings joins five other players to have been caught flopping twice this season -- Corey Brewer, Mario Chalmers, James Harden, Lance Stephenson and P.J. Tucker.

Brandon Jennings scored 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting (including five threes) with three rebounds, 13 assists and one steal in the Pistons' 116-111 win over the Bucks on Monday.
Jennings got ejected in Saturday's embarrassing loss to the Sixers so naturally he came out fired up to play tonight. He's going to be a game-to-game risk to either go big or disappear.

Brandon Jennings received two technical fouls in the first quarter against the Sixers on Saturday and was ejected.
He didn't seem too upset about being ejected and will finish with two points, three boards, two assists, one steal and no turnovers on 1-of-5 shooting. Will Bynum will take over and might give the Pistons a better chance to win tonight. Jennings is not in jeopardy of being suspended for his infractions.

Brandon Jennings hit just 2-of-8 shots for eight points, seven assists and one steal in the Pistons' 110-78 loss to the Heat.
Not much to say here except for that the Pistons have mailed their season in. Josh Smith hit 4-of-14 shots for nine points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and a normal 1-of-5 mark from deep, Andre Drummond went for nine and 14 with a steal, Greg Monroe went for 12 and eight with two blocks, and Kyle Singler scored 11 points without hitting any threes. Outside of Drummond, no starter played more than 29 minutes.

Brandon Jennings hit 6-of-14 shots and five 3-pointers for 17 points, five rebounds, 13 assists and two steals in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Cavaliers.
Jennings did well from a fantasy perspective, but crumbled down the stretch on both ends of the floor as the Cavs scored the games final 10 points for the unlikely win. The Pistons were up 82-66 to start the fourth quarter, but it wasn't a big enough lead for Jennings and company. Jennings is always capable of blowing up for a big line, but he's let his owners down more times in the second half of the season than he's posted the kind of line he did tonight.

Brandon Jennings, who played just 14 minutes on Friday, had 19 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes of Saturday's loss.
Of course, he hit just 5-of-16 shots, but at least came through with some production after Friday's disaster. He's been really struggling for more than a month and owners will have to look hard at his shooting percentage before using him for four games next week.

Brandon Jennings played just 14 minutes in Friday's loss due to foul trouble and general ineffectiveness.
Jennings missed both of his field goals and did not score while managing just one rebound and two assists. He hasn't been happy about Mo Cheeks' firing and is a risk to disappear on any given night, but owners should try to hang in there and see where this goes.

Brandon Jennings hit just 1-of-10 shots on Tuesday but bounced back with 24 points on 10-of-15 shooting, four threes, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss.
We use the term 'bounced back' lightly considering he had just two dimes and the Pistons lost yet another game. The fluctuations in shooting output shouldn't surprise anybody playing on a team with systemic failures throughout the building.
