Another pretty solid one from Jackson. He has some really good moments, and then does something dumb like coming down 1 on 3 and pulling up for a 26ft 3 with 22 on the shotclock. He needs to think the game better for better possessions.
Jackson took a really tough pull up jumper in traffic late in the game which he fortunately nailed as it kept us in the game at a critical juncture.
That was such an awful shot. So glad it went in.

I feel like Melton has at least 6 steals. He was everywhere.

On the flip-side, when Crawford goes into Carmelo-mode, he may be the worst player in the NBA. He's functional and even helpful when he plays pass-first and only shoots when it's called for. When he's forcing up contested mid-range jumpers after 14 crossover dribbles it just sucks the life out of the offense.
He's not the worst player in the NBA. Only second worst, according to the Real Plus Minus Stat. He's horrible. Give his minutes to Daniels or something. James Jones has already said we've given up on the PG spot this season, so roll out the ball and see if we've got something in Okobo and Melton.

Wow, Mo Bamba is the worst center in the league by almost a point and a half?

And Robin “We gave up on him too soon” Lopez is second-worst?
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against

My [2019-20] prediction is better than mid 30s... mark it down! — Superbone
