Frank Jackson delivers season-best performance
Both of Detroit’s two-way players have Cheap Wayne Ellington Jersey received opportunities this season, but they were harder to come by for Jackson.

He immediately launched his fourth 3-pointer midway through the third quarter Cheap Saben Lee Jersey without bringing the ball down first, a sign of a confident, comfortable shooter. He’s 7-for-12 from 3 this week, after going 4-for-13 Cheap Rodney McGruder Jersey in his first nine games of the season.

Ellington and McGruder will also Cheap Frank Jackson Jersey eventually return, but the former appears to be a strong trade candidate going into the March 25 deadline.

After missing 17 games with a sprained ankle, Friday was Wood’s second game back. He showcased his wide offensive repertoire and finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds, shooting 8-for-14 overall.
