Josh Jackson 35 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/5/2019)

Josh Jackson exists in that hazy, hard-to-define place that remains a scientific enigma, but is also known to be present on every team in the NBA: the border between being part of the YOUNG CORE and not being part of the YOUNG CORE. Like every other player stuck in this unpleasant limbo, Josh Jackson can…

Josh Jackson 19 Points/1 Game-Winner Full Highlights (3/16/2019)

Sure, Josh Jackson’s three-pointer with 1 second left didn’t technically win the game for the Suns. But it was such a good shot that it caused Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry to become so discombobulated that he called a timeout that he didn’t have (Chris Webber is smiling somewhere, but it’s more of a grimace), and…

Josh Jackson 27 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (2/6/2019)

How many good games does a player have to have before it stops being “lucky” and starting being a “legitimately good stretch of play”? It is three? More? Less? I don’t know. What I do know is that Josh Jackson has now had three good games in a row, and I’m wondering if this is…

Josh Jackson 25 Points Full Highlights (2/4/2019)

Josh Jackson has now scored 25 points in two consecutive games. That’s good news for Suns fans who were maybe moving on from him a little bit and who were preparing to confront the fact that he might be as vital a part of the Suns’ YOUNG CORE as they wished he was. However, buried…

Josh Jackson 25 Points Full Highlights (2/2/2019)

Josh Jackson now has the unwelcome distinction of being a player who has gotten fouled on a three-point attempt…and then missed all three free throws. He missed another set of free throws at a different point in the game as well. He’s not even a bad free throw shooter (67% before this game’s 4-of-9 performance…

Josh Jackson 27 Points/3 Blocks Full Highlights (1/22/2019)

Question to Suns fans out there: is Josh Jackson still considered by your fanbase to be a critical component of the team going forward? Does he make up one third of the Suns’ “big three” with Booker and Ayton, or is the “big three” actually a “big two” and Jackson is just kind of a…

Josh Jackson 22 Points Full Highlights (1/6/2019)

It’s been sad to see the recent minutes reduction for Josh Jackson. Not because he makes the Suns more fun to watch, because I don’t think he really does, but because of what that means for his career. He’s a top-five pick on one of the worst teams in the league; most players in that…

Josh Jackson 18 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

The so-called “sophomore slump” is real for Josh Jackson. There are a lot of ways to interpret stats, to manipulate stats to create new stats, to discover hidden truth in stats that may disagree with the eye test. For Jackson, I don’t think I can find a single stat that shows him in a positive…

Josh Jackson All 65 Dunks Full Highlights (2017-18 Season Dunkilation)

“Hey Devin, we got a big problem here,” Josh Jackson said into his phone, trying not to panic. Devin Booker, answering the call on the other end, paused for a second before replying. “Okay, first, I don’t know where ‘here’ is, second, what the heck even are you talking about?” Josh felt like he was…

Josh Jackson 28 Points Full Highlights (4/3/2018)

Josh Jackson has been unleashed. The Suns weren’t trying to win at the beginning of the year, but now they’re not trying to win AND they don’t have Devin Booker, so Jackson gets to do whatever he wants now. No threat of getting benched, no other offensive options to take touches away from him, this…
