Ryan is a Farmington native who enjoys all things basketball, particularly when it involves the Detroit Pistons. He spends much of his free time combing through NBA archives and curating footage of meaningless late-90's regular season performances for mass consumption.

We might need to hold the phones on this whole “Reggie Jackson trade was a dud” thing. Granted, the Pistons have struggled to mesh since a series of deadline deals that reshuffled their roster. But if Tuesday evening was any indication, there may be a future.

Jackson, playing in just his 12th game as a Piston, poured in 23 points and career-high 20 assists in a 105-95 defeat of Memphis Grizzlies, definitively snapping Detroit’s 10-game losing streak in the process.

The victory did not come easy, as the Pistons fell behind by as many as 15 points in the first half. However, Detroit’s shooting prowess made a rare appearance in the third quarter, setting up a comeback charge led by Jackson’s nine assists in the frame.

In a back-and-forth final quarter, Detroit’s game-breaker came at the 6:35 mark of the fourth when Jodie Meeks connected on a three-point bomb, absorbing contact from Vince Carter in the process. Meeks’ subsequent four-point play delivered the Pistons an 88-87 lead, setting up a 5-0 Jackson run that’d extend the Pistons’ advantage and ultimately lead to a strong closeout down the stretch.

Jackson’s 20-point, 20-assist evening marks the second time this season a Pistons point guard has dipped into the points and assists well for 20 aside. Brandon Jennings scored 24 points and dimed out 21 assists in a win over Orlando in January.
