Jackson posted 26 points (10-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 32 minutes during a 118-95 win over the Hawks on Wednesday.
Jackson's 26 points were a game high as he rebounded from a two-game stretch in which he shot just 9-of-27 from the field. It was his third-highest scoring output of the season, and the rest of the starting lineup followed suit as each Detroit starter scored in double figures. Jackson has been decent over the last five games, with averages of 16.4 points on 43.8 percent shooting, 3.4 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 three-pointers per game.
Jackson provided seven points (3-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 27 minutes in a 110-77 loss to the Jazz on Friday.
The Pistons were beaten handily in back-to-back road tilts with the Warriors and Jazz, resulting in sub-30-minute workloads for Jackson in both contests, and unsurprisingly, less production than he normally offers. After stringing together a pair of double-digit assist efforts in consecutive games earlier this month, Jackson has reverted to his shoot-first tendencies in the past four contests, recording no more than three dimes in any of those games. Though Jackson's numbers should pick up Sunday against the Lakers, the likely absence backcourt partner and top three-point sniper Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) may not lead to much of an improvement in the assist column.
Jackson had been on a nice run, scoring 19 to 31 points in the last six games, but some struggles from three-point range Thursday played a large part in the reduced production. The six-year veteran had drained multiple shots from beyond the arc in five of the previous six games, but could only manage a 16.7 percent success rate from long distance in the blowout loss. Jackson also saw his least amount of playing time since he'd logged 24 minutes against the Bulls on Dec. 19, but he's still enjoying his best stretch of the season, averaging 22.2 points, 6.0 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals across 32.7 minutes in six January contests.
Jackson turned in a season-high 31 points (13-26 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go with three assists, two steals and one rebound across 47 minutes in a 125-124 double-overtime victory over the Trail Blazers on Sunday.
After back-to-back double-digit assist games, Jackson decided to serve more as a scorer than a facilitator Sunday, and that mindset coupled with the hefty workload allowed him to hit 30 points for the first time all season. Jackson had already reached the 20-point plateau in the previous four games, so he clearly seems to be thriving after a bout with left knee tendinitis delayed the start of his season until early December. With the Pistons on tap for a four-game slate this week, Jackson shapes up as one of the top fantasy point guards for the period.
Jackson scored 22 points (7-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT) along with 11 assists and two rebounds in 29 minutes during Thursday's 115-114 win over Charlotte.
Jackson has been on a tear recently. Over his last four games, he's averaging 22.5 points and 8.75 assists, while shooting 47.7 percent. Following a mysterious "team meeting" to discuss Detroit's recent woes, the Pistons seem to have reincorporated Jackson's ball-dominant style into their offense, and he's delivered. If fantasy owners are looking to trade Jackson, his value is the highest it's been all season.
