After the San Antonio Spurs' recent win over the Milwaukee Bucks, I had a chance to speak with Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings.
Jennings, who finished with 14 points and four assists in 38 minutes of action versus the Spurs, spoke on San Antonio and what it takes to play against them to have a shot at winning, his thoughts on the controversial photo with Tim Duncan and Tony Parker and more.
Jeff: When you look at the NBA schedule and see you will be going up against one of the best point guards in the league, Tony Parker, and one of the best teams, the Spurs, does that add a bit more incentive for you and the Bucks?
Brandon: No. Now that they're one of the best teams in the NBA it puts that pressure on you that you know you have to go out there and compete to a high level. That's what they are. Also, they're a tough team. They're very experienced. Anything that you do wrong, they're going to counter on it.
Is it the system of the Spurs or the players that make them so successful?
I think it's both. They have their own little style. It's like their own little clique. They play at their pace and they're going to do what they want, when they want.
You saw and heard about the photo involving Duncan and Parker. Your thoughts?
They were just joking around.
Looking at the road ahead, anything the Bucks need to tweak as the season rolls on?
There are things we need to tweak. We started off the season at six and two and now we're eight and nine. We need to figure out what it is and try to get it back together.
