Josh Jackson: The key for us since the All-Star break: One, communication. Two, playing a full 48 minutes. The communication part, I feel like it’s something we’re still getting better at. I see times where we have stretches and we don’t talk on defense and offense, and it can kind of show that we’re not communicating because you can see that we’re not on the same page. There’s been plenty of times this season and last season where we’ve played good in the beginning of the games, or stretches, but never throughout the whole game. … We took a punch [during our Golden State Warriors win] and then we responded, we came back and we continued to fight. I think we got down like, 16, and still came back and won the game. I feel like we’re now having a lot of fun out there in our games. Our communication’s better and we’re playing the right way.
Josh Jackson: I heard about what happened to Russell Westbrook in Utah. I think it’s something that happens a little bit too much. There is some way we should try to control it and get a handle on it. Players are getting fined. Fans are still allowed to say whatever they want to say. They’re close to the court and able to say all these things. That shouldn’t happen. That shouldn’t be allowed. Anything that someone says of that nature is all bad and on the same level. Nothing is worse than the other. Of course, I’ve heard something racist on the college level and high school. Nothing I would want to share. I haven’t heard it in the NBA. Ways we can get a handle on it? I really don’t know. Maybe moving the court a little further from the fans. But that sucks for the fans. …
Josh Jackson: Zion Williamson is amazing, a really good player. He has to keep working on his game and keep building. He’s special with his potential and with everything he can do. He’s superathletic. When I look at him, I see so many things he can add to his game. Adding a few fundamentals will take him over the top. We haven’t talked about him being with the Suns next season. But if it happens, we would welcome him with open arms. He’d fit right in.
As Josh Jackson’s tying 3-pointer fell through the hoop in the dying seconds of overtime, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry rushed to call a timeout his team didn’t have. Officials had no choice but to assess New Orleans a technical foul that put Suns star Devin Booker on the free throw line with 1.1 seconds left. Booker calmly hit the free throw to cap his 40-point, 13-assist performance and put the Suns up for good in a 138-136 victory on Saturday night. “That’s the beauty of the sport; you never know what can happen,” Booker said. “We came into the locker room — we were looking around and we still don’t know what happened, but we’ll take the win for sure.”
