Josh Jackson Goes Off For A Career-High 36 Vs The Warriors, 20 In 1st Half
The Suns are losers of 17 of their last 18 games but if you watched those 18 games then you know the Suns have a potential star in rookie Josh Jackson.
During a 16 game stretch at the end of February and through March, Jackson scored 20+ in 9-of-16 games. On Saturday night, Jackson put up a team-high 20 (8-12 FG) off the bench…in the first half against the Warriors! He finished with a career-high 36 on 14-of-23 shooting to go with 6 boards, 4 assists, 2 steals and a block.
The 36 was the fourth most by a rookie this season. Walter Davis, Amar’e Stoudemire and Mo Layton are the only Suns to ever score more in a game during their rookie seasons. In case you were wondering, Devin Booker’s rookie high was 35.
