Jackson tallied 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and one block across 19 minutes Tuesday in the Clippers' 131-107 win over the Warriors. The scoring total led the Los Angeles bench and was Jackson's best output since he signed with the Clippers shortly after the All-Star break. The nearly flawless shooting from the field and three-point range was nice, but it is in no way consistently repeatable for the typically inefficient guard. He's converting at just a 41.6 percent clip from the field overall this season.
Jackson posted seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three assists and two rebounds across 25 minutes during Tuesday's 109-94 victory over the Thunder. While the Clippers got the win, Jackson had his worst performance since joining the team, shooting inefficiently while committing four turnovers to three assists. His struggles can likely be attributed to the tough backcourt defense of the Thunder, who have Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hounding ballhandlers.
Jackson scored 12 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 16 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 102-92 win at Phoenix. Jackson made the most of his limited playing time and produced a double-digit scoring effort for the first time since joining the Clippers. He should remain a bench option for the time being, however, as the Clippers have a lot of depth for the point guard position. That role should conspire against his fantasy upside down the stretch, and it's not likely to change unless Patrick Beverley suffers another injury.
Jackson finished with five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six assists, three rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes during Monday's 124-97 victory over Memphis. With Patrick Beverley back, Jackson shifted to the bench. He did lead the team in assists Monday, but that's where the good news ends. As long as the Clippers are running close to full strength, Jackson is going to be a backup who sees neither the minutes nor the opportunities that he had in Detroit.
Jackson will get the start at point guard for Saturday's tilt with Sacramento, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Jackson take on first-unit point guard duties for his Clippers' debut. Across 14 games with Detroit this season, the 29-year-old averaged 14.9 points, 5.1 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 27.2 minutes per game.
