Game #26 Preview: Pacers vs. Pterodactyls
Milwaukee Bucks @ Indiana Pacers
Monday, December 21
7:00 PM EST
I’m running out the door to head to make the trek to my sister’s for Christmas in Boston, so you’re just getting the numbers today. By now, you probably have heard that Brandon Jennings dropped 55 points in a game and has played well enough to be the only rookie that might threaten Tyreke Evans’ ongoing rookie of the year campaign. Jennings has slipped of late — as have the Bucks — but Brandon is still scary enough on any given night to deserve his new moniker: The Pterodactyl With Wings of Fire.
Five Other Things
(1) As you can see from the shooting percentages above, expect a ton of missed shots tonight.
(2) Look out for Andrew Bogut who has been playing well this year when healthy and should battle well with Hibbert. It will be interesting to see if Roy can string together back-to-back good games — something he hasn’t done in over a month.
(3) Ersan Illysova is one of my favorite new players in the league. He’s just really fun to watch and he plays like I think people should play.
(4) Don’t be surprised if Luke Ridnour shocks you with his good play. He’s been doing that all year. Not sure how, but it’s been happening.
(5) Luc Richard Mbah a Moute not only has an awesome name but also plays awesome defense.
