Jackson had easily the most efficient performance we’ve seen from beyond three point range this summer. His jump shot was lights out today, and he did a great job of getting open on the perimeter. Jackson has a consistent and compact release, letting him knock down catch and shoot jumpers before the defense can close him out. Despite his tremendous shooting, it may have been Jackson’s passing and rebounding that were most impressive. He was very focused today, showing good poise and court vision with the ball in his hands. The young forward only forced one shot, with the shot clock expiring, and was patient with his dribble, letting his teammates get open rather than trying to reset the offense. Jackson’s defense was solid in stretches, but he had a very hard time closing out Gerald Green effectively. He did show nice anticipation by getting a deflection in help side, and his defense on Green was really the only flaw in his performance today. Jackson could do a lot of good for himself if he continues to shoot this well.
