Default Jennings Sounds Off After Fourth Quarter Benching

Brandon Jennings was taken out of the Milwaukee Bucks' game against the Philadelphia 76ers early in the third quarter after Jrue Holiday beat him on a drive to the basket.

Jennings didn't play the rest of the way as the 76ers topped the Bucks 100-92 on Wednesday night. He was held scoreless for the first time in his NBA career, going 0-for-3 in 17 minutes.

"This is the third time I've been benched in the second half and it hasn't been under (former coach Scott) Skiles," Jennings said after the game. "You always want to be out there to help your team.

"I don't see any all-stars in this locker room so I think everybody should be held accountable, like anybody else. There's no maxed-out players in this locker room; there's no all-stars. So don't try to put me on a pedestal and just give everybody else the freedom to do whatever they want."

Jennings added that he feels as though he's being singled out.

"Of course," he said. "This is the third time this has happened. We had a sluggish start but we still had a chance to win it. It was there for us to take."

The Bucks host the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night.

"It's up to him whether he's going to put me in the game or not," Jennings said, referring to coach Jim Boylan. "Just go with the flow."

Maybe he should learn to play defense and he won't get pulled out of the game. I respect that move from the coach and honestly, if Jennings says there are no all-stars on the Bucks (although I think HE thinks he's a max player) then he shouldn't be surprised if he's yanked.

And to think some on here believe Jennings is better that Lowry....smh.
