The final five points in regulation to send the Thunder/Grizzlies game into OT and then the last 4 of his 32 in OT to seal the game.
That sounds like something Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook would do but it was Reggie Jackson, off the bench, who had a career night and saved Durant and Westbrook on a night where they combined for 11 of 45 shooting for 30 total points.
“Reggie played an outstanding basketball game,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “He was able to attack and finish around the rim like he’s done all year, and I knew he would bounce back. … He’s done a great job of coming in and giving us that lift offensively when we needed it as a sixth man.”
Jackson finished with a game-high 32 points (11 of 16 shooting) to go with 9 boards in the 92-89 win for the Thunder. The series is now tied up 2-2.
