Jaren Jackson 19 Points Full Highlights (1/4/2019)

So I was looking at Jaren Jackson’s game log, and I was like “wow this guy fouls a lot!”, because he has so many games with 4 or 5 or even the dreaded 6 fouls. So then I’m like “I bet he’s leading the league in fouls!” and I go and check and he totally…

Jaren Jackson 26 Points Full Highlights (1/2/2019)

Two of the highest-profile Jacksons in the NBA met head-to-head tonight. One was a Jackson Junior, but I still think he counts as a Jackson for my purposes. The question is, which Jackson came out ahead? DTB will factually analyze the factual facts, using truth and logic, and at the end of this glorious process,…

Jaren Jackson 27 Points Full Highlights (12/23/2018)

Jaren Jackson, with 25 seconds left in the game and the shot clocking winding down, showed LeBron James his “Jaren Jackson Juniors”* with a big stepback triple to put the game away. For now I’m just going to ignore the existence of Isaac Bonga and talk about how impressive it is that the youngest player…

Jaren Jackson Career High 36 Points Full Highlights (11/30/2018)

It’s funny, the Memphis commentators had the distinct tone of “let’s wrap up this game with some statistical tidbits because there’s no way we’re going to win this one” which switched right into “frenzied excitement due to the un-freaking-believable nature of the happenings occurring before our eyes” as Jaren Jackson hit a three while getting…

Jaren Jackson 16 Points/7 Blocks Full Highlights (11/25/2018)

The Memphis Grizzlies blocked a lot of shots tonight. 10 of them. The most any team has blocked in a long while. They still lost, to the Knicks, somehow, but it wasn’t for lack of effort (except from Mike Conley, who didn’t block any, lazy bum). I don’t have numbers on how many of them…

Jaren Jackson 20 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (11/23/2018)

Attention Grizzlies: you are not supposed to be a good team. Please cease winning games immediately. Grit N’ Grind is over, Zach Randolph is a lump-shaped DNP-magnet over in Sacramento, and you were way more fun to watch when Xavier Rathan-Mayes was running the show. I got attached to some of the scrubs they were…

Jaren Jackson 27 Points Full Highlights (11/16/2018)

It’s like the Grizzlies never tanked at all. They were so bad at the end of last year. So unbelievably bad. They lost by 60 to the Hornets and then laughed about it. It all seems like a fever dream to me now, because the current Grizzlies bear no resemblance to that G-League assemblage of…

Jaren Jackson 20 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (11/7/2018)

Man, that Summer League game where Jaren Jackson hit nothing but a ton of threes is looking like the world’s biggest statistical aberration right now. He was 8 of 13 (thirteen threes holy balls) from deep that game. After tonight’s game, he’s 5 of 24 in the regular season over 10 games. It felt unsustainable…

Jaren Jackson 15 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (11/5/2018)

Jaren Jackson has been pretty good this year, right? He’s on the Grizzlies, so no news of his exploits ever escapes a 50-mile radius around the arena, but from what little I’ve seen of him, he’s looked decent. Except for that three-ball. The scouts were right about that one; it doesn’t look very workable on…

Jaren Jackson 24 Points Full Highlights (10/19/2018)

All the predraft sites (RIP DraftExpress) said the same thing about Jaren Jackson: he good, but man that shot form is wonked out to heck and back. They didn’t use quite those words, of course, but that was the gist of it. And he bore that out in his first Summer League game: tons of…
