Jack is one of the best mid-range shooters in the league. Fourteen percent of all of Jack’s shots come from the center of the floor in the 8-16 foot range, and in this range Jack shoots 54 percent, a mark high above league average.

The Warriors led by Jack run pick and roll 31 percent of the time when on the floor, and the they are incredibly successful when running screen and roll with Jack.

Jack is an excellent shooter overall and is highly consistent from all over the floor, but especially from mid-range, an area where most NBA players struggle.
