Since Dec. 9, the Grizzlies lead the NBA in scoring and assists and rank 2nd in FG percentage. They’re on pace to shatter just about every meaningful offensive record in franchise history.
Taylor Jenkins is ahead of schedule, just like his players.

Tout le monde est là, starting 5 classique pour le dernier des 6 matches du homestand.
PG - Ja Morant
SG - Dillon Brooks
SF - Jae Crowder
PF - Jaren Jackson Jr
C - Jonas Valanciunas
Jaren Jackson has a 35+ 3PAr, a sub-10 REB% and a 0.5 BPM.
There are 25 players in NBA history who matched that profile through their 1st 2 seasons.
That list, exclusive of JJJ, has an avg height of 6'5". Jackson is 6'11".
Of course, add BLK% & the list shrinks to just JJJ.
Grizzlies trail the Pelicans 31-30 after the 1st quarter.

Jonas Valanciunas- 6 points, 5 rebounds
Ja Morant- 3 points, 4 assists
Grizzlies shot 4-16 from deep, while the Pelicans went 15-28.
The kind of foul Jaren Jackson needs to avoid, grabbing NAW on the switch. That's the kind of guy you just stay solid on.

Jaren Jackson Jr. doesn’t get enough love for being the perfect compliment to Ja Morant. He’s 20 and already one of the best shooting bigs in the game. He’ll be more physical as his body matures. Foul trouble is the only question mark. He’ll be a problem for bigs for a long time.

Jaren Jackson Jr is the new textbook shooter. Don't @ me.
Jaren Jackson Jr has a legit chance to go down as the greatest shooter in Grizzlies history. Never would've dreamed I'd be making this statement when we drafted him.
The quick trigger Jaren Jackson Jr. has on his 3 ball is crazy.

Foul number two on Jaren Jackson 🔥
They mad cause I have an opinion. That's why AD left their ass. GM can't do his job. Ingram gone dip too. He shouldn't be playing the four, he too damn small. Melli getting paid 4mil, put his ass on Jaren Jackson.
Grizzlies trail the Pelicans 31-30 after 12 minutes of action. Jaren Jackson Jr leads all scorers with 9 points (3-8 from the field, 2-4 from three).
Grizz are shooting 46.4% from the field; Pelicans are 50% from the field.
Grizz are 42.9% from three; Pelicans are 50% from three
Jaren Jackson Jr. is the best player on the court. Hands down.
Get Ingram the fuck outta Nola... mans gotta play the 4 cause their stupid ass GM won't trade for a PF. Larry Nance, Morris or Wood from DET.... anyone. Ingram is 190lbs guarding Jaren Jackson. Smh
Jaren Jackson Sr. Went to Cohen lol
