The last person to pull off a 20/20 game with assists was Steve Nash back in 2009. Last night, Brandon Jennings joined the 20/20 club by scoring 3 more points and dishing out 1 more assist than Nash for a career-high 21 against the Orlando Magic.
“Finding guys, guys are getting easy shots, guys are making shots,” Jennings said. “It was one of those nights where you’re like, `I’m close to 19 (assists), I better get 20.”
He also got the Pistons another win – their 12th out of their last 15.
“He was phenomenal tonight,” Van Gundy said. “He was getting to the lane and making plays. He was making his shots when he got them.”
