Despite averaging 18.7 points a game, dishing out 5.8 assists a night and ranking third in the league with 2 steals a game, Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings was passed over for a spot on the NBA All Star Eastern Conference roster. The reserves for the game were announced on Thursday night. Jennings has helped lead the Bucks into playoff contention at the halfway point of the season with a 22-18 record. Getting the nod ahead of Jennings were Jrue Holliday of Philadelphia and Kyrie Irving of Cleveland. Jennings badly outplayed Holliday on Tuesday night in a Bucks victory but he is averaging 19 points and 9 assists a game for a team that is 17-25 on the season. Irving is averaging 23.7 points a game for the Cavaliers who are next to last in the Eastern Conference at 11-32. Jennings and Iriving will go head to head in Cleveland Friday night. The All Star game is set for February 17 in Houston.
