“Joe has been playing a lot of point guards, so he’s somewhat used to it,” Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. “Jennings is a tough cover. He can get to the rim, and he can make shots. When we did switch, the ‘bigs’ did a good job of making him shoot jump shots.”
Jennings doesn’t seem to yet have a feel for getting his teammates involved. That didn’t hurt the Bucks much in Game 1, when Jennings had just three assists but made 14 of 25 shots.
