Isaiah Jackson is showcasing his shot-blocking abilities in the NBA Summer League.
The Indiana Pacers rookie tied the Summer League record for most blocks in a game with 7 in a win over the Wizards where he also added 11 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals in just under 21 minutes.
Jackson’s ability to impact the game on the defensive end was likely one of the biggest draws for the Pacers. Jackson showed that skill quite a bit during his stint in Lexington, blocking 65 shots last season which led the SEC and was top 15 nationally.
Jackson’s key to getting on the floor early in his NBA career will be performances like this, where he creates a significant impact on the defensive end as his offensive game continues to develop.
