So far, so good: An overview of Pistons guard Brandon Jennings

See also

Detroit Pistons starting point guard Brandon Jennings, acquired this past NBA off-season in a trade that saw the departure of Brandon Knight, has continued to play the game of basketball with the same quickness and penetrating style that made him such an affective player during his time in Milwaukee. After missing the first couple of games of the season with a jaw fracture, Jennings, now playing in his fifth year as an NBA player, has reached his usual statistical numbers as a result of his output on the court.

Now halfway through the regular season, Jennings has played 41 of 43 games, starting all but one of them. During the span that Jennings has been on the floor this season, the Pistons have gone 16-25. Despite the disappointing team record, the point guard has been able to show up statistically in a similar fashion to his previous years in the league. Right now, Jennings is averaging 16.6 points per game, 3.2 rebounds per game, 0.1 blocks per game, and 1.6 steals per game. His career averages for these stats are as follows: 17.0 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, 0.2 blocks per game, and 1.5 steals per game.

One statistic that has significantly improved since Jennings came to Detroit is his assists per game. Jennings is averaging 8.2 assists per game this season, although his career average for this category is only at 6.0.

Aside from his stats, Jennings has also talked about being in a position to improve as a player by learning from teammate, and veteran point guard, Chauncey Billups, as well as Pistons head coach Maurice Cheeks, who also played as a point guard in the NBA for 15 years.

The Pistons are currently under .500 and are sitting ninth in the Eastern Conference.
