Portland v. Utah last night

Utah just rolled up Portland last night in a preseason game, at one point up by 33 in the second half, but Jack played well in limited minutes in the second half and was especially impressive on the defensive end against Deron Williams, who was absolutely torching Blake and Telfair.

6 points, 4 assists, 1 steal, 1 rebound and only 1 turnover in 10 minutes - along with clearly being the best defensive guard on the team, not a bad night for a rookie point guard. Jack has done a good job so far in camp, and McMillan seems to be very impressed with him.

Nobody knows what the starting backcourt for the Blazers is going to look like, but however it works out Jack is going to get some serious minutes simply because they have no other guard on the roster who can play effective defense on the NBA level.

That's a great shot of Jack. How can a person not love this guy? He epitomizes everything that I would want people to think about a student athlete from GT. I hope he finishes his degree so that we can see his Jersey hanging from those rafters.
