Brandon Jennings has been playing pretty cool lately. So cool you might call it swag.

But seriously, Jennings has been absolutely killing it of late, averaging 21 points on 47-percent shooting (41 percent from deep) and seven assists opposite just 1.5 turnovers per game. Those are his numbers in the month of January. They are remarkable and among the best in the NBA.

Jennings dropped 34 points on Monday night against the Toronto Raptors on 11-for-22 shooting, dishing 10 assists opposite two turnovers. Jennings also added two steals, one of which came on the very last play of the game.

Stan Van Gundy said after the game that Jennings' success can be tied to the fact that the ball is in his hands all the time and thus, he's growing more confident (end of the video):
