Jaren Jackson 27 Points Full Highlights (2/7/2019)

NBA historians will look back on this day as day one (or day zero?) of the Jaren Jackson Jr. era in Memphis. This is the day that Marc Gasol was traded to the Raptors, breaking up the iconic Gasol/Conley duo that had endured for a decade. This is the day that the Grizzlies moved on…

Jaren Jackson 20 Points Full Highlights (1/26/2019)

The Grizzlies are collapsing (ignore this win), but they’re still playing rotations like a playoff team. Give it a rest, Bickerstaff. No one wants to see Shelvin Mack anymore. Same as last year, it took them a while to realize that what they really should be doing is tanking. And see what that got them!…

Jaren Jackson 23 Points Full Highlights (1/18/2019)

Remember when the Grizzlies started the season strong and were actually sort of good for a little while? I think they were even the first seed in the West for a short period of time after a five-game winning streak in late November. However, as with all things in life, good things are doomed to…

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…
