STRENGTHS IN TAMIR JACKSON'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Tamir seems to make sure he has a solid handle on the pumpkin when directing the offense. He plays on a team filled with many offensive players that have ability to take over the game. He has a good first step, forcing his defender to backpeddle from time to time, allowing him to knock down some jumpers.

AREA TO IMPROVE IN TAMIR JACKSON'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: The outside game. If Jackson is more consistent in his perimeter game, it will allow him even more opportunities to blow by defenders.
