TOP OF HIS CLASS – 2011 second-round pick (40th overall) Jon Leuer ranks in the Top-20 among rookie leaders in four different categories: scoring
average (12th, 5.5 ppg), rebounds per game (11th, 3.2 rpg), assists per game (T-11th, 0.7 apg) and blocks per game (T-6th, 0.5). When compared to other
rookies not drafted in the first round, however, Leuer moves up in the rankings to second in scoring average and rebounds per game, and third in assists per
game and blocks per game.

MISSING THE MONEY BALL – For only the third time in the last decade, the Bucks have held their last three opponents to less than 25% shooting from
beyond the three-point line (21.1% @ DEN, 23.1% @ UTA and 19.0% @ SAC). The last three-game streak occurred from 11/18/09 – 11/21/09.

  • Brandon Jennings matched his career high with five steals Thursday night in Sacramento. Jennings had
    recorded five thefts twice previously (4/9/10 at Philadelphia and 4/13/11 at Oklahoma City).

  • Jennings' 31 points against the Kings marked the first 30-point effort by a Bucks player this season. The
    Bucks had nine 30-point games last year (four by Jennings).

  • Milwaukee has scored 30+ points in the first quarter in four of its six games this season. The Bucks had eight
    30-point first quarters all of last season.

  • Larry Sanders handed out a career-best four assists Thursday in Sacramento. His previous career high was
    two (3/8/11 at Washington).

  • Milwaukee will get its lone look at the L.A. Clippers tonight. The Clippers are one of six teams, along with
    Dallas, Golden State, Houston, Sacramento and Utah, that won't visit the Bradley Center this season.

  • Drew Gooden is averaging 21.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game as a starter this season.
  • The Bucks continue to rank among the elite defensive teams in the league, including top-7 marks in fewest
    points allowed (91.8, 7th), opponent FG% (.412, 3rd) and opponent 3P% (.269, 3rd). The Bucks are also second
    in the league in forcing turnovers (19.2).

  • The Bucks have recorded 20+ assists in four of their six games thus far. Eight different players had at least
    two assists on Thursday in Sacramento.
