The look has been clearly etched on Brandon Jennings’ face recently and despite his outward confidence and noticeable swagger, the numbers illustrate what his face cannot hide.

Confusion and uncertainty.

It came somewhat to a head Monday as Jennings went scoreless for only the second time in his 330-game NBA career, in the Pistons’ 112-103 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. He took seven shots in 28 minutes but wasn’t in rhythm all game.

“Just an off night,” Jennings said. “Everybody has off nights.”

For the Pistons’ sake, this had better be the lowest point for Jennings’ season, as he’s going through a slump that ranks among the worst months of his five-year NBA career. He’s shooting just 26 percent this month, averaging 10.4 points and 8.6 assists in 33 minutes (eight games).

It’s well-known he’s doing more than refining his game from his years in Milwaukee, where he chucked up shots because he had to; it’s almost a full overhaul now, perhaps leading to overanalyzing his game.

“I think I’m just thinking too much, trying to find guys instead of looking for my shot,” Jennings said. “So when I do, I’m out of rhythm because I’m not looking for it.”

When Jennings is at his best, he’s leading a fast-tempo attack, occasionally taking the transition 3-pointer most traditional coaches would cringe at, and taking other chances.

The Pistons seem to play that style only when they get defensive stops, which have been scarce, and running the set offense that has a nontraditional pieces Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond and Josh Smith isn’t exactly the easiest to navigate for the most experienced point guard.

Trying to harness that has made Jennings look almost robotic, which probably has led to Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks wanting to simplify matters.
