Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis: Itching To Get Off Every Night, According to Randy Wittman
Sexual innuendos … Sports innuendos … Sometimes it’s all in the same game. All basketball players want to put the ball in the hole off penetration, right? We could be here all night, folks.
Milwaukee guards Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis aren’t bashful, that’s for sure. They look to get off every night, if you will — to get buckets. In fact, when Ellis is on the bench, the Bucks average 11.1 3-point attempts per 48 minutes; when he’s on the court, Milwaukee takes 21.5 3-pointers per 48. Or Jennings, when he’s on the court, the Bucks make 40.2 field goals per 48 minutes; when he’s off, they sink a mere 34.8. Together, they average 36 shots per game (Jennings 16.7 and Ellis 19.3), but they’d each be happy with over 20 shots a game, at least.
So why not ask Randy Wittman before the game, what he’s going to two with those two guards just itching to get off.
“You think it’s just tonight they’re itching to get off? I think they itch to get off every night.”
There’s more, just watch.
In the locker room before the game, Wizards starting point guard A.J. Price found a spot to lie on the floor, propped his head up with a muscle roller, and added a last-minute crash course to the studying he’s likely done already, watching a replay of the Wizards-Bucks game from preseason this year. Here’s Price on containing Ellis and Jennings:
