Brandon Jennings hit 10-of-23 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to 25 points, five rebounds, four assists and six steals in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans.
He had four more turnovers, but owners have to be loving everything about his game right now. He's crushing with 22.8 points, 6.6 assists, 2.8 steals and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games, but the 5.0 turnovers are a bit of a buzzkill in leagues that count them.

Brandon Jennings hit 8-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, four rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Tuesday's blowout loss to Minnesota.
Jennings is rolling again, averaging 20.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 46 percent shooting over his last five games. However, owners in turnover leagues need to take note that he's also averaging a whopping 5.6 TOs over that stretch, which isn't much of a surprise, and he had six of them tonight.

Brandon Jennings poured in a season-high 33 points vs. the short-handed Bulls on Saturday, leading the Pistons to their fourth consecutive victory.
Jennings sank 12-of-22 FGs, including five 3-pointers, and he was 4-of-4 at the FT line. He also had five assists and two steals but the needle swung sharply from 'distributor' toward 'scorer' tonight. That's fine as long as his shot is falling (he's an impressive 12-of-25 from downtown during the win streak) but Jennings' career 39.4 percent FG mark suggests that a correction is imminent. Enjoy the lofty scoring while it lasts.

With both Will Bynum (hip) and Chauncey Billups (knee) sidelined, Brandon Jennings has played back-to-back 40-plus minute games.
Head coach Maurice Cheeks said about Jennings' minutes, "He's a young player. They can play 40-plus minutes. We'll get his minutes down, put [Peyton] Siva in there in the first half a little bit, but I certainly want Brandon closing the games." Jennings is off to a pretty decent start this season, despite his awful percentages from the field, averaging a career-high 8.4 assists, hitting 1.6 treys, and grabbing 1.6 steals per game. It appears he has embraced more of a point guard role this year, and that could be due to the fact he finally has talent around him.

Brandon Jennings heard his share of boos in his return to Milwaukee on Wednesday, scoring 17 points with two boards, 11 assists, three steals, one block, two 3-pointers and six turnovers in a 105-98 win.
He couldn't get his shot to fall, but the double-double with some steals and 3-pointers made this a worthwhile game for Jennings. He shot 4-of-16 from the field and dropped his season field goal percentage to 38.2 percent, but at least he's been dynamite in points, assists, steals and 3-pointers.

Brandon Jennings hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds, five assists and four steals in Tuesday's impressive win over the Heat.
He also had seven turnovers, but is playing like one of the league's top point guards right now, averaging 16.2 points, 8.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 46 percent shooting over his last five, making him a must-start in fantasy.

Brandon Jennings had another double-double in Sunday's 115-110 win over the Sixers with 20 points, 12 assists, six boards and three 3-pointers on 7-of-16 shooting.
That puts him at 9.1 assists per game over his last 11 games and he's embracing his role as the point guard. The Pistons lead the NBA in points in the paint and the presence of Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe down low has really helped. Jennings has seven double-doubles this season.

Brandon Jennings admitted that he's still learning how to balance his scoring and playmaking with the Pistons.
"There's been times where I've been getting so many guys involved, I kind of forget to score sometimes," Jennings said. "That's been what's kind of messing up my rhythm a little bit. I've got to try to find a way to not go five minutes, 10 minutes without taking a shot." He finished Monday's game with 15 points, four 3-pointers and 13 assists, and has now reached double-digit assists in three straight games.

Brandon Jennings stuck it to his former team in the blowout 113-94 win against the Bucks on Monday, shooting 5-of-10 from the field for 15 points with two boards, 13 assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
The game was over by halftime and Jennings probably played a little bit longer than he should have, but he and the Bucks didn't exactly part on good terms. He didn't have any double-doubles in his last 15 games including the playoffs back with the Bucks, but Jennings has four in his 12 games with the Pistons. His move to the Motor City looks like it's going to help his fantasy value, especially in assists.

Brandon Jennings shot 2-of-10 from the field in a double-double performance against the Nets on Sunday, scoring 14 points with 10 assists, two rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 41 minutes.
He shot 0-of-6 in the first half, but his coach gave him a pass due to his assist total. "That's the mark of a good player. He played a full game," Mo Cheeks said. Jennings has never really been much of a shooter and that's probably not going to change even though he has some better talent around him. However, he's establishing some rapport with his forwards and should have a nice amount of double-doubles this season.
