Jarrett Jack

It’s easy to pick on Jarrett Jack.

He takes bad shots. He screws up defensive assignments. He probably has more confidence than talent (and he has no shortage of the latter). My Twitter feed erupts whenever head coach Mark Jackson sends him in to take over a game and for good reason.

Who could forget this?

Or this:

It’s frustrating.

Jack’s insistence on being the best player on the court can be frustrating, but his Game 4 box score should help make up for any of the mistakes he made early in the series (24 points, 9-of-16 shooting, seven rebounds, four assists and two turnovers).

More importantly, he managed to keep the Warriors afloat as the primary ball handler and scorer while Curry acted largely as a decoy in the corners. Keeping this offense alive with Thompson, Landry, Bogut and Draymond Green having off nights is no easy task, and Jack proved his importance to the Warriors with his Game 4 performance.
