    This marks the 28 th consecutive year that the Bucks have opened their season on the road, with a 14-13 record over that span. Overall, Milwaukee is 24-20 in season-opening games: 19-16 on the road and 5-4 at home. For more tidbits about Bucks opening nights, see the “News and Notes” section on the next page.

    Opening their season on the road is nothing new for the Bucks, but in this instance Milwaukee will begin the season at the same location its previous season ended, with a 74-87 loss on April 26.

    Milwaukee has played its season opener in Boston on three previous occasions: 1987-88 L, 108-125; 1989- 90 L, 114-127; 1995-96 W, 101-100.

    New Bucks forward Marquis Daniels played in Boston for the previous three seasons. With the Celtics, he averaged 4.9 points and 2.0 rebounds over 138 games.
    LAST TIME VS. BOSTON L, 74-87 – Shorthanded again, the Bucks dropped their season finale in Boston, losing by 13 points in a game in which they never led. The Celtics set a new quarter-scoring high for an opponent for the season with 39 points in the second frame, but also set a new quarter low with only nine points in the fourth quarter. Tobias Harris paced the Bucks with 16 points and nine rebounds. Beno Udrih came off the bench to dish out six assists. All active Celtics players got minutes in the game, and all scored except for Rajon Rondo, although he did record a game- high 15 assists. Avery Bradley led Boston in scoring with 14 points, and Brandon Bass had a high of nine rebounds for the Celtics.

    Great games from Jennings, Harris, and sanders. I also loved the playing time distribution, with the exception of Ellis.

    Watched it from start to finish, here's what I saw:

    1.) Sanders could be starting by next year. When he is in the game our team is just rejuvenated, they play harder, get more rebounds. Kid is a stud and like I have been saying, needs this type of PT. Yes he fouled out, but he had a very productive game and by that time the game was out of reach.

    2.) Jennings is a star in the making. Took it at Rondo without regard and I loved it. We need to sign him now.

    3.) How about Tobias Harris?! 18 6 and 2 I'll take that from him.

    4.) IDK what has been wrong with Ellis, but he needs to figure out his role on this team.

    Score one for Brandon Jennings in his duel with Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo.

    And score one for the Milwaukee Bucks, who posted a stylish 99-88 season-opening victory over the Celtics on Friday night at a sold-out TD Garden.

    An aggressive Bucks team built a 22-point lead in the third quarter and still led by that margin late in the fourth quarter until substitutes for both sides entered the game.

    Jennings finished with 21 points, a career-high-tying 13 assists and a career-best six steals in a highly efficient performance while playing just 29 minutes.

    "He didn't just have good games; he just owned me," Jennings said of his previous matchups with Rondo. "I'll be honest.

    "But this is a different year. I know I have to be more aggressive. We missed the playoffs two years in a row. It started from tonight.

    "I'm just trying to go out there and compete every night. As long as every guard knows I gave my all and they felt me that night."

    The Celtics (0-2) lost their home opener after dropping their first game in Miami on Tuesday. And they never really got started against a Bucks defense that held them to 30% shooting and just 30 points in the first half.

    "I thought right from the jump ball we were just highly competitive," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "We had a lot of energy and guys were doing their jobs out there.

    "We were in the right place defensively most of the night, challenged some shots at the rim. When they started to come back in the third (quarter), we were able to turn them over a couple times and we made a couple easy baskets when we needed it."

    Tobias Harris, getting a start at small forward and also playing some at power forward when the Celtics went to a small lineup, contributed 18 points and six rebounds. Harris defended well against Boston's Paul Pierce, who was limited to 11 points and had four turnovers.

    Guard Monta Ellis added 14 points and three Bucks reserves had 10 apiece - forwards Larry Sanders and Ekpe Udoh and point guard Beno Udrih.

    The Bucks' big men picked up some fouls but Skiles juggled them in and out of the lineup.

    "We were ready," Sanders said. "We want to hang our hats on our defense.

    "We're able to be more aggressive and pick up those fouls because we've got some guys coming in behind us that are going to be ready. That's our theme now, just depend on a teammate."

    Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 15 points and Rondo added 14 points and 11 assists.

    "I still don't like our urgency yet, honestly," Boston coach Doc Rivers said. "When you watch us play, I don't like how we're approaching the games."

    Jennings has starred on opening night before. In his NBA debut in 2009 he nearly had a triple-double at Philadelphia (17 points, nine assists, nine rebounds).

    "We lost that game though," Jennings said. "I'd rather take this one."

    Jennings did not receive a contract extension earlier this week while several of the top point guards in the 2009 class - Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson and Stephen Curry - got new deals.

    "It just makes me hungrier," Jennings said. "I've been through the situation before when I went to Oak Hill (Academy), when I went to Europe. People kept saying, 'It's not going to work.'

    "I'm just going to go out there and play basketball and let everything else take care of itself."

    Jennings hit 9 of 17 shots, using his floater effectively and knocking down several jumpers.

    He had five of his assists and five steals in the third quarter as the Bucks extended a 16-point halftime lead to 76-58 entering the final period.

    "He was very, very good," Skiles said. "In the third when they were starting to get after it a little bit more and getting up into him and bumping him, he responded very well."

    The duo of Jennings and Ellis looked in sync.

    "We're not worried about what anybody says," Ellis said. "Tonight we worked off each other and hopefully we can continue to do that and get more wins.

    "It was not just one or two people. It was the whole team and that's what we need every night."

    Yeah the thing that has had me excited about Harris is his potential to be a high efficiency scorer. Well last night he was 8-11, including 2-2 from deep. Now he won't be that good all the time, but love to see that.

    Henson and Lamb don't figure to be factors on this year's team. I'm hoping next year they are ready to go.

    Just worried once Moute is back Harris will get less playing time.

    I could only watch a few minutes of the game, but I'm glad they came out strong. Feels like forever since they've won their opener.

    It will be interesting to see Gooden's role on this team. I think they're better served playing Sanders and Udoh, but if they need some shooting I guess Gooden will get some minutes.

    I honestly hope Gooden doesn't play when everyone is healthy. I just don't see minutes for him, Daniels, Pryzbilla, Henson, or Lamb. I wish Lamb would play more than Udrih, but he'll probably only get chances when Beno is struggling.

    Jennings- 33
    Ellis- 34
    Harris- 25
    Ersan- 25
    Dalembert- 18
    Sanders- 20
    Udoh- 20
    Mbah Moute- 20
    Dunleavy- 20
    Udrih- 15

    This is what I hope to see.
