Jackson had 19 points (9-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, and one assist in 33 minutes during Thursday's 116-100 loss to Sacramento.
Jackson led the Mavericks with 19 points on 9-of-16 shooting, his second straight game with double-digit scoring. Tim Hardaway Jr (leg) is going to miss the rest of the season which could see Jackson remain in the starting lineup. Big nights such as this typically come on unsustainable shooting and he offers very little in the way of supporting numbers. He should be viewed as a points streamer only at this stage.
Jackson supplied 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Jackson's scoring tally led the second unit and was largely the result of an unusually robust allotment of playing time, which appeared to have been at least partly triggered by the fact Maxi Kleber sat with a wrist injury. Jackson hadn't logged more than 25 minutes in any game since joining the Mavericks in early February, and he made excellent use of the extra opportunity. Jackson has shot at least 50.0 percent in three straight contests, and given that Dirk Nowitzki should continue to see significantly capped minutes the rest of the way, the 2017 first-round pick of the Kings could well see a similar level of opportunity in some of Dallas' remaining games.
Jackson compiled 18 points (6-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and an assist over 25 minutes Wednesday against Washington.
Jackson led the bench in scoring and did the majority of his damage from beyond the arc, where he converted on 71.4 percent of his treys on the evening. The 23-year-old forward had been held to just nine points over his previous three contests, so Wednesday's outing was certainly a step in the right direction, although it's uncertain whether he can put up these types of numbers on a consistent basis.
