Games like tonight’s matchup with Oklahoma City are why Jackson said he’s happy to be back in San Antonio.

“To be able to win another championship, to play great basketball and to be in the postseason is something that I love,” Jackson said. “I get up for that. This is an organization that’s always first-class and always has a chance to be in the post season, so I was excited to come back.”

But Jackson said he’s in a different role with this team than in 2003, when he was a starting forward and averaged 12.6 points per game during the playoffs. That evolution gives this playoff run a decidely different feeling than the previous one.
