Reggie Jackson Gains Revenge on His Former Team, Which Stirs Issue
The Pistons defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder by a score of 88-82 in a wild finish.
The Pistons beat the Thunder without Reggie Jackson, whom they acquired from the Thunder at the trade deadline of last season. Jackson was invisible for the first 36 minutes of the game, but then, when he checked at the 7:25 mark of the fourth quarter, the game was changed. Jackson scored six points in the final 7:25 of the game, including four late game free throws to help the Pistons hold on for the win.
With Jackson’s help, Detroit held on for the win.
Then this happened.
Reggie Jackson celebrated Detroit’s win over the Thunder a bit, he skipped around waving his hand, telling the crowd to get loud. No big deal right? Ask the Thunder.
Thunder starting center Steven Adams who had been bumping with Drummond all game had some relaxed but choice words on Jackson. Remember, Jackson was traded by the Thunder last season, and this was his first win against his former team.
Then, the Thunder’s head coach Billy Donovan chimed in.
Then, Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook chimed in, and he was not pleased at all with his former backup.
There is definitely bad blood between Jackson and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Maybe one day, we could see these two teams in a NBA Championship series, because who wouldn’t want to see Reggie Jackson and Russell Westbrook go at it for at least four straight games.
Reggie Jackson earned his revenge, and in doing so, he has flustered the Thunder.
