When it comes to a backcourt duo, there may not be one as explosive as Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis. The Jennings-Ellis duo combined for nearly 38 points per game, but it took them nearly 33 shots to do so. They do not shoot a very high percentage, but Warriors fans know full well how talented these two guards can be if they are firing on all cylinders.

Elllis, over his last three seasons as a Warrior, averaged 24 points per game. He was, and still is, a fan favorite among the Golden State fans.

In just his seventh game during his rookie season, Jennings lit up the Warriors for 55 points. Like Ellis, Jennings is incredibly streaky and often relies on volume to put up the stats that he does.

As a duo, they provide great offensive talent to an offensively futile team. Due to their size, however, their defensive liabilities prevent them from climbing the ranks of backcourt duos.
