See that video above? That’s Jarrett Jack dropping 31 points and 10 dimes against the New York Knicks last season, Brooklyn’s cross-town rival. Watch the video, it’s a great game: Jack’s scurrying around screens into the lane, setting up teammates for jumpers and layups all over the floor, and doesn’t really get going from the floor until the second half, when he does to the Knicks defense what most teams did.
It was a great game, and his season high in scoring. His career high? 33 points, back in the 2008-2009 season, against… the New York Knicks. Both of those games came on the road in Madison Square Garden.
It’s not just those two games: in 23 games against the Knicks, Jack has averaged 12.8 points per game, his highest against any opponent in the league.
Jack averaged 9.5 points, 4.1 assists, and 2.8 assists in 28.2 minutes per game last season with the Cavaliers, making 31 starts in 80 games. The Nets could very easily start Jack in a two-point lineup next to Deron Williams this season, not unlike what they did with Shaun Livingston in the calendar year 2014.
This season should be fun!
