When (Oklahoma City Thunder Reggie) Jackson made his debut Nov. 3 against the Nets, it was as a starter.

He’s been in the role ever since, and he’ll remain there for the 4-6 weeks it takes Westbrook to recover.

“I’m just trying to make the most of it,” said the former Boston College star. “I came out and said I wanted to be a starter, so I have to take this opportunity head on and go out here and do the best that I can to try to prepare each and every day now to help my guys, help the team get better.”

It means getting the team into its offensive sets, picking up the ball defensively, and “being the head of the snake on both sides of the ball,” Jackson said.

Figuring it all out has been a nightly process.

“Just taking this challenge, day in and day out, head on,” he said.
