Jackson: 'I always get excited when it's a win for the good guys'
Head coach Mark Jackson on Jarrett Jack's gutsy performance and the team win over Pacers.
He's a heck of a basketball player. Who's been fighting. You know. An injury. For quite awhile now and -- ownership and our front office a lot of credit. Because. Notice some people that would sit there we know Lee's back we'll play who hold off on signing. We knew exactly who we. Is and was a basketball player as a person. Has. Traces franchise. And I he's playing. On a level that we thought you play at. Leading his team making plays down the stretch defending. And it's great to see. I always get excited. When. As a win for the good guys and you certainly won't. All all but there. Well all that curry look yeah well. Not just look to teammates but to look to make plays. 1 am aggressive. I wanna move forced the defense. To make him give it up. I'll make a play. Whatever that is what that's all self fault for his teammates he's that good shooting. And change in his face. And he was. Outstanding down the stretch again tonight but I want to know what deadline that would -- him in that. You got two guys -- -- make plays. They're very welcome in the game with Steffi at the point and Harrison in the game is just a field. But either way -- have to be a playmaker. -- -- -- -- -- For. Us defensively. Always remain the same. -- force them away from the paint area -- we played against who. Big time post players and David and -- close to two different animals have no we've been Trace and recently. Not many teams have two guys like that. So it came a point where we wanted to make them uncomfortable. And -- him a little bit by. Double teaming make a show we were Chris what our rotations. And our guys that are very good job of mixing. -- when the door when not to go. -- I was looking at him commentator true to thing I appreciated most about it. Hasn't played it played seventeen years. As analysts and as a coach I've seen guys. Not take that shot because it in wanna mess up their field goal percentage. And I always thought how selfish. Call a play that is. And for him to take that shot it shows what he's about he's about team and that's that's the group that I have. But. People look. I have not made a point of emphasis because I really wanna know who you lost his. And when you don't take that shot you telling yourself. And I guys that like you pointed out they don't take that shot at a miss is the right way to make because you never know. When you hit it and give us a cushion. -- I don't know what it -- -- -- -- you get foul on the bench goes crazy. We'll go out there you know that was that it happens is that guy who -- he's it. No I just think column we talked about and have Tom and I specifically. Pointed him out -- hadn't scored a basket. But he rebounded and he defended Paul George of the you know a top player. For anybody to god and Harrison who's doing a great job defensively on them and he was rebound the basketball. And I wanted to let him know they'll. Some folks might not appreciate what you don't. But we see it and we appreciate it and we got a group of guys that's invested in each other and they were just excited that he made a play. How much of programs weak was me you know or. Well for us some and you look at the reaction of the bench. You look at Jack's reaction getting the polls in the camera shot. And I think any time you all finished. Out of possession. Defense league it can take to win from you come. And that that certainly took place had -- that a core.
