The Indiana Pacers try to get back on the winning track when they host the Milwaukee Bucks at Conseco Fieldhouse. Brandon Jennings is a guy to keep your eye on and not just for entertainment purposes. As Bruno points out in his Scouting Report, the rookie's production has been a bellwether for Bucks wins and losses.

As Jennings goes, so go the Bucks. In their 11 wins, he averages 24.2 points, shots .490 overall and an astonishing .556 from the 3-point line (30-of-54). In their 14 losses, he averages 17.3 points, shots .344 overall and just .315 (23-of-73) from the 3-point line. Earl Watson faces the challenge of playing Jennings tight enough to keep him from getting open looks from the arc but not so tight he risks getting burned on penetration.
