Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Leads balanced attack in Game 5 win

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Swats five shots in Game 4 loss

Jackson contributed 21 points (7-21 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five rebounds, five blocks and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 101-98 loss to the Warriors. Jackson was a force on the defensive end for the Grizzlies in the loss, racking up multiple blocks for the seventh time in 10 playoff contests. He also led Memphis with 21 points despite missing all seven of his three-point attempts and shooting just 7-for-21 from the field overall. Jackson will need to continue putting up big production if Memphis is to overcome its current 3-1 series deficit, especially if Ja Morant (knee) remains unable to play.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Erupts for 33 points, 10 boards

Jackson posted 33 points (10-18 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes during Sunday's 117-116 loss to the Warriors. One of the reasons Minnesota was able to hang around in Round 1 was Jackson's perpetual foul trouble. He picked up at least five fouls in five of the six games but was able to stay on the floor Sunday against Golden State's jumpshot-oriented attack. In 31 minutes of action, Jackson notched his second straight double-double (he had 18 points and 14 boards in Game 6 against Minnesota) and worked his way to the free-throw line nine times. The big man's six made threes tied his season high, which he originally set during Memphis' record-setting, 152-79 win over Oklahoma City back on Dec. 2.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Questionable at San Antonio

Jackson (thigh) is listed as questionable Wednesday at San Antonio. After missing Monday's blowout win over Golden State, Jackson remains on the injury report due to soreness in his right thigh. The injury doesn't look to be overly concerning, but the Grizzlies -- owners of the No. 2 seed in the West -- could exercise caution with the playoffs approaching.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Blocks four shots in win

Jackson struggled from the field but still scored in double figures for a seventh consecutive game and blocked at least four shots for the 14th time this season. Across 10 contests in March, the talented big man has averaged 15.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 1.1 assists in 25.4 minutes per game.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Limited run, gaudy stats

Jackson finished Sunday's 122-98 win over Houston with 15 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 21 minutes. Jackson racked up five fouls across just 21 minutes, but he still compiled a big stat line, recording multiple blocks for the fifth time in his past six games. Luckily for Jackson, Memphis controlled the game from the tip. He'll look to stay out of foul trouble Wednesday versus Brooklyn.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Decent all-around effort

Jackson amassed 15 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 24 minutes during Friday's 120-105 loss to the Hawks. Jackson was efficient from the floor while filling the stat sheet in a game where the entire Memphis offense struggled. He's lacked consistency at times this season but seems to be trending in the right direction of late, as he has scored in double digits in each of his last five appearances.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Dominates in blowout win

Jackson notched 19 points (8-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two steals over 21 minutes during Tuesday's 135-102 victory over the Pacers. Jackson did his damage quickly in the blowout win, putting on an impressive two-way performance against Indiana's soft frontcourt. Notably, the performance marked his 13th straight with at least one block, and he's scored at least 18 points in three of the past four games.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Scores 18 points in win

Jackson notched 18 points (5-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block over 30 minutes during Sunday's 125-118 victory over Oklahoma City. Jackson didn't have his best shooting performance, but he still delivered a solid stat line. It would be fair to treat him as Memphis' third-best scoring weapon behind Ja Morant and Desmond Bane at the moment. He's averaging 13.6 points per game over his last 10 contests, though he's shooting 40.2 percent from the field and a meager 25 percent from three-point range in that span.

Grizzlies' Jaren Jackson: Blocks three shots Tuesday

Jackson totaled 22 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 24 minutes during Tuesday's 132-111 victory over the Pelicans. Jackson turned things around after a poor showing in his previous performance, making the most of his time on the floor despite the blowout. Outside of a few subpar efforts, Jackson has been able to successfully rebuild his reputation after sitting out the majority of the 2020-21 season. With the Grizzlies pushing hard down the stretch, his production should be sustainable ROS.
