Nissan #ProJackets Basketball Report

Jan. 29, 2016

By Wiley Ballard

For the eleventh consecutive season Chris Bosh is an NBA All-Star. Bosh, one of just four former Yellow Jackets to be named an NBA All-Star, leads the Heat in scoring with 19.2 points per game… After a 16-game absence, Derrick Favors returned the Utah Jazz looking “fresh as a colt in a corral”… Iman Shumpert made another appearance in pop culture this week while on the floor his Cavaliers have won four of five… All of that and more can be found in this week’s NBA edition for #ProJackets.

 

Chris Bosh – Last night TNT revealed the remainder of the 2016 NBA All-Stars and for the eleventh straight year Chris Bosh was selected. It’s been a volatile year for Bosh, who less than 12 months ago was diagnosed with severe blood clots ending his season prematurely. It’s been an unfathomable turnaround for Bosh scoring a team-best 19.2 points per game and netting 15 double-doubles through 46 games. Bosh is also shooting 37.2 percent from long range and reportedly has been invited to participate in the NBA’s three-point contest. Miami travels to Milwaukee tonight looking to win their third straight road game. Tip is at 8 p.m. ET.

 

Derrick Favors – After missing 16 straight games due to injury, Derrick Favors returned to the Jazz on Monday night against Detroit. Although the Jazz fell 95-92, Favors looked “fresh as a colt in a corral” adding 14 points in just 20 minutes. Utah rebounded Wednesday night with a 102-73 drubbing of the Charlotte Hornets with Favors again playing a reduced role. The Jazz host the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

 

Jarrett JackJarrett Jack underwent season-ending knee surgery earlier this month in Manhattan. Officially diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the point guard anticipates a full recovery and plans to return for the 2016-17 season. Jack’s season averages in 32 games as the Brooklyn Nets starting point guard were 12.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and a team-high 7.4 assists per game.  

 

Anthony Morrow Anthony Morrow posted his 10th double-digit scoring effort of the season on Wednesday night. The wingman scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting despite playing just 13 minutes in Oklahoma City’s 126-123 win over Minnesota. Morrow’s inconsistent playing time has been a storyline throughout the season; he is averaging just 15 minutes per night. The Thunder, winners of nine of their last 10, host the Rockets tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBATV.

 

Iman ShumpertIman Shumpert and the Cleveland Cavaliers have won four of their last five and sit two games ahead of Toronto in the Eastern Conference. Individually, Shumpert is averaging just 5.8 points per game over the five-game stretch but has added valuable minutes defensively… Off the court and to no surprise, Shumpert continues to make artistic headlines. Adidas’ new advertising campaign focused on the Future features the moonlight rapper in its 75-second promo… The Cavaliers visit division rival Detroit tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET.

 

Thaddeus Young – The Nets picked up arguably their most impressive win of the season on Sunday evening downing Oklahoma City, 116-106. The game was delayed four hours due to two feet of snowfall in the Brooklyn area and pitted the Thunder (33-12) against the Nets (11-33). Thaddeus Young played a critical role pulling down a team-high 14 rebounds and adding 14 points in 39 minutes. Next Brooklyn visits the Dallas Mavericks tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET.
