Rookie Jennings leads Bucks to win vs. Bobcats

Rookie Jennings leads Bucks to win vs. Bobcats

He's averaging 25.2 points and has reached double figures in all but one game, when he scored nine. Lew Alcindor, later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, averaged 27.8 points over his first 10 games as a rookie with Milwaukee.

Jennings' lone problem had been turnovers, but Jennings only committed two and his three offensive rebounds were more than the entire Charlotte team, which had two.

"He's got a great deal of confidence in his game," Bobcats guard Raymond Felton said. "He's pretty much doing everything."

Stephen Jackson, in town for the second time in seven days after being traded from the Warriors to the Bobcats, scored 22 points in his third game with his new team. Gerald Wallace added 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Flip Murray had 17 points for Charlotte.

"This was one of the first times we actually shot pretty good from the field," Wallace said. "(But we) missed 17 free throws. We're at this point right now where we dig ourselves out of one hole and end up finding ourselves off in another hole."

Milwaukee's Hakim Warrick had 16 points and Ersan Ilyasova chipped in 13.

The Bobcats (3-9) went on an 8-0 run early in the fourth and cut it to 93-85 with just over two minutes to go on a layup by Boris Diaw, but Murray missed two free throws and Jackson missed a 3-pointer to keep Charlotte from getting closer than the final margin.

Jordan, a managing partner in the franchise who oversees the team's personnel decisions, watched intently from about five rows beyond Charlotte's bench.

For his part, Jackson seems happier with his new team.

"The team has accepted me with open arms so everything is good on that part, I just think as far as us coming together and figuring out how hard we've got to play to win games is the biggest thing right now," he said. "Had we played like we played in the fourth quarter all game, we would have won."

NOTES: Brown tied Pat Riley for fifth-most NBA games coached at 1,904. Brown has coached 2,239 pro games when combining his ABA experience. ... Bogut is expected out two to four weeks. ... Bucks F Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (sprained left foot) is in a walking boot. He said before the game he's day-to-day, but likely will not play against Memphis.
