01:27 PM ET 12.13 | The Oklahoma City Thunder were in trouble last night trailing to the New Orleans Hornets for most of the game. It was their first game in three days and they didn't look quite into the game. The precision on offense wasn't there and a hungry Hornets team was looking to pull off a major upset on the road. OKC needed a spark and head coach Scott Brooks turned to his bench in search of one. It came in the form of second-year point guard Reggie Jackson. Jackson came in for an 11-minute stretch beginning at the end of the third quarter and gave the Thunder just what they needed to win the game. He hit a three right after checking in, played with tons of energy and helped OKC win the game. It was a big time game from Jackson, who might start to see more minutes now after doing his job perfectly last night.

Does he get to swing a Louisville Slugger while on the court?

Where are the rookies for OKC? They don't even get garbage minutes.

Someone tell the Queen of England she better not attend any OKC games.

I wonder if he has proclaimed that he is the "straw that stirs the drink" in OKC?
