Jamaar Taylor is a skilled, physical, and athletic guard. He has the ability to create on his own, pass, and score, which helps him in pick and roll and one-on-one plays. Jamaar can score off the dribble or coming off screens. He is an exceptional defender and is capable of pressuring guards full court, denying the ball, taking charges, getting steals, and fighting through screens or defending forwards. Because of his low stance, balance, toughness, anticipation, and discipline he is extremely hard to play against. In addition to being a great defender, he is a tremendous rebounder for a guard. He uses his body incredibly well to avoid getting screened by bigger players. Offensively, he keeps it simple using single moves, physicality, and athleticism to get by defenders. His mid-range pull up shots, transition plays, and finishes around the basket with authority are his go-to offensive moves.
