Jackson, of course, was in the firestorm of the game’s final play. As the Thunder’s final possession broke down, with Kevin Durant trying to get free of Francisco Garcia and the Rockets leading by two, Jackson finally drove the lane and put up a shot over Houston center Omer Asik. Some said Jackson deserved to get a whistle, that he drew a foul from Asik, but I think it was a good no-call. Asik went straight up, or as straight as a guy can go. Too many whistles in my opinion, anyway. I’m not going to gripe when there’s a no-call on body contact. But still, a good effort by Jackson to get the ball on the rim, which he did, good enough for Serge Ibaka to have a point-blank putback. Not Jackson’s fault that it missed.
“Going forward, if he just plays solid like that, we’re going to be in good shape,” Brooks said.
