Brandon Jennings scores 57 in Drew League Game | 55 points in 3 quarters vs Warriors flashback
While many of the league’s future stars were proving themselves at the Orlando Summer League, Jabari Parker was lighting it up at the Chicago Pro Am, Tony Wroten was putting up 53 at the Seattle Pro-Am and Brandon Jennings was putting on a show in LA at the Drew League, where he dropped a ridiculous 57 points to go with 6 boards and 5 assists.
Usually when we post about players in pro-am leagues putting up gaudy numbers, we will get a few people whining and saying those guys would never be able to do it in a NBA game. Well, on November 14th of 2009, a rookie Brandon Jennings scored 55 points in a NBA game vs the Golden State Warriors.
The 55 broke the Bucks record set by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and was only 3 points away from Wilt’s record for most points ever scored by a rookie.
The most amazing thing about this game was the fact that Jennings missed 6 of his first 7 shots and was scoreless after the 1st quarter.
