Locked On Suns Sunday: Discussing Josh Jackson’s career night, the tank race, and March Madness

We should have Jackson on Locked On Suns more often, right?

On today’s episode of Locked On Suns, Evan and Brendon ran through a lot of topics. Not only did we chat about Josh Jackson’s breakout performance -- 36 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block -- but also how the likes of Marquese Chriss, Troy Daniels, and T.J. Warren played off of Jackson’s infectious energy.

Is it time to start Jackson over Warren? Will Davon Reed ever play? It’s nearing that time.

After Memphis snapped their 19-game losing streak, Phoenix now sits tied with them for best odds to land the No. 1 pick. We also ran through Memphis’ upcoming schedule to see who will create distance.

In the end, we quickly chatted abouts what’s stood out to us so far in March Madness. Is this a worst-case scenario playing out from a scouting point of view? Both Evan and Brendon came away impressed with Kentucky’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Do any names make sense in a trade-up scenario with their Miami and Milwaukee picks, which are looking likely to convey? There are plenty who fit the billing and named off a few we liked most.
