Oklahoma City Thunder guard Reggie Jackson outscored Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined in OKC’s 92-89 overtime win over Memphis on Saturday night.
Durant and Westbrook struggled from the floor once again, but they didn’t mind letting Jackson take the spotlight, because his playoff career high 32 points helped get the Thunder even with Memphis at two games apiece in their first round NBA Playoff series.
Jackson shared an emotional hug with Durant after the game, and on Monday, Jackson said his Game 4 performance proved to him what he’s capable of, and that all the hard work he’s put in has been worth it.
His teammates and coaches were not surprised one bit by Jackson’s big game.
The Thunder host Memphis in Game 5 Tuesday night at 8:00 at Chesapeake Arena.
