Redick Happy to be in Winning Environment
With (J.J.) Redick, the Bucks have won four of five games. With the Bucks, Redick is relevant again.
“There’s been a number of moments since I’ve been here – in the fourth quarter, in overtime – where I’ve thought, ‘Man, I missed this,’ ” Redick says. “And I did.
“Even in Orlando, in a close game, coming down to the wire, you still think to yourself: ‘We’re 15-37 or whatever.’ ”
Interim coach Jim Boylan – who has a real and deserved chance to keep this job – has spread the floor with Jennings, Ellis and Redick together, using Larry Sanders to protect the rim. Boylan is a Jersey City guy who is trying to finish reading the new Springsteen biography this season. Redick has given him a shooter to sell Jennings on playing the part of distributor, and the result has been a staggering 36 assists in the past two games.
