Brandon Jennings, aching Achilles and all, is proving to be a gamer. Despite being one of the smallest players in the league at 165 pounds, Jennings does not take games off.
He was the only Buck to start all 82 regular-season games and all seven postseason games last season as a rookie. He has not missed one game yet this year, either.
“Last season, Brandon played in 97 consecutive games, including preseason games and had about 3,000 (2,671) regular-season minutes,” Bucks general manager John Hammond said. “He seems to be one of those guys who, maybe we’ll say at some point in his career, is pound for pound one of the toughest players in the league.”
