BIO

In the span of one season, Reggie Jackson went from playing with the Tulsa 66ers to being the Thunder’s backup point guard to the team’s starter in the Playoffs. This season, Jackson has has had the chance to play heavy minutes at point guard and off the ball, both as a starter and off the bench. By staying aggressive, Jackson is able to get to the rim and finish at a high percentage while also creating opportunities for others. On the defensive end, Jackson’s biggest challenge and opportunity is perfecting his ability to defend the ball in the pick-and-roll. Considering most NBA offenses are centered around that screening action at the top of the key, Jackson’s success on the defensive end will be predicated on his ability to fight through screens and stay in front of his man.
