OKLAHOMA CITY - Reggie Jackson went high in the air and hauled in a defensive rebound with 37 seconds remaining in the opening quarter Tuesday at Miami. When he landed, he quickly surveyed the court.
To his right was Russell Westbrook. Taking off in front of him was Kevin Martin.
Jackson had a decision to make: pass it to one of his go-to scoring options, or initiate the offense himself. Without hesitation, he settled on the latter, scooting up-court with five dribbles before tossing up a floater while getting fouled on the play.
Only four seconds elapsed off the game clock, preserving a pivotal two-for-one scoring opportunity for the Thunder.
