Milwaukee Bucks rookie guard Brandon Jennings broke a record held by LeBron James Saturday night as he scored 55 points in a win over the Golden State Warriors. The double nickel makes Jennings the youngest NBA player in history to score 50 points in one game. The previous record had been held by James.
James is just the third player in Bucks history to score 50 points joining Michael Redd (57) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (51.) It was also the most points scored by a rookie in over 40 years-since Earl Monroe scored 56 in 1968.
