Watch Jaren Jackson Jr. drain threes on way to 29 points in Summer League debut

SALT LAKE CITY — In the first 50 seconds of his first Summer League game, the Grizzlies Jaren Jackson Jr. set a pick, popped out to the three point line close to straight away, and drained a three.

“I like shooting threes,” Jackson said after the game. “When you’re open, you got to take it. There’s 24 seconds on the clock, you may not get a better shot sometimes. Coach told me, ‘If I get a good look, just shoot it.’”

Jackson would go on to hit six more threes — including a halftime buzzer beater complete with a shimmy to celebrate — on his way to 29 points in his Summer League debut. It was an impressive showing where he also showed his handles to create shots and a nice touch inside. He also blocked two shots.

Check out the highlights above from his big performance.
