Video: Josh Jackson’s Aggressiveness is Powering His Breakout Season

Jackson thriving off the bench with aggressive second unit

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Memphis Grizzlies Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

The last time I made a video on Josh Jackson, it was published on a game day. In that game, Jackson went on to roll his ankle, miss the next two games, and struggle tremendously in the following games afterward. Let's hope history doesn't repeat itself!

The Detroit Pistons guard/forward was playing extremely well to start the season, but as mentioned, he struggled to regain that form for a stretch of games after rolling his ankle early in the season. He would lose his starting spot to the scorching hot shooting (at one time) of Wayne Ellington and be relegated back to his bench duties.

However, over the last 14 games, Jackson looks like he is back to 100 percent and is playing the best basketball of his NBA career.

In this video today, I look at why his aggressiveness is what is unleashing his breakout season as of late and, as long as he stays healthy, you can expect this to continue for the rest of the season.
