Minutes after the Nashville Predators’ 10-game winning streak ended Saturday night with a 3-2 shootout loss to New Jersey, coach Peter Laviolette had moved on to the next one.
The win marked the first time the Bucks have won in Memphis since 2009.
We wanted more, Bucks interim head coach Joe Prunty deadpanned about Jennings’ performance. No, he was very good tonight. Obviously the 12 assists were great. We had 33 as a team. Like the ball movement, like the way as a group we shared it and pushed the ball. But overall a really positive night from him, a lot of things that were really good.
For Jennings, he was just happy to be back on an NBA court and taking pride in showing the world he can play at a high level again.
I was nervous, he admitted. I felt like it was my first rookie game again, just putting on that jersey was a blessing. I’m just very grateful.
Jan. 13: You might think of Minute Maid Park as a significantly more hitter-friendly environment for Cole than PNC Park, but that’s only true in terms of home runs. It’s actually a pitching-friendly environment and boosts strikeouts, and the change of scenery should help, keeping Cole among the top 25 fantasy starters. Musgrove could get a look in the Pirates’ rotation, Moran could take over at third base and Feliz provides bullpen depth. All could be endgame targets in NL-only leagues.

One interesting element in the Clippers’ rebuild strategy is that Williams and Harris both played well enough this season to be borderline All-Star candidates, and their impact stats reflect that. Williams is almost certainly going to be the NBA Sixth Man of the Year, and Real Plus Minus (RPM) paints him as the biggest positive offensive impact at the shooting guard position in the NBA (+4.36 ORPM). And Harris actually has a higher offensive (+2,58 ORPM) and overall (+2.06 RPM) RPM score as compared to Griffin (+1.61 ORPM, +0.83 RPM) this season. He’s also younger, on a more affordable contract and less injury prone.
