Jarrett Jack scored six points in 35 minutes during Saturday's 110-96 loss to the Grizzlies, adding three boards, five assists, one steal and one turnover.
The Scoop:The Cavs have little depth on the wing and have used Jack for 33.2 minutes per game over their last five. In that stretch, he averaged 10.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 triples on 38.0 percent from the field. If those numbers sound appealing to you, give Jack a look.
