TNT KaTropa import Terrence Jones seems to be a master when it comes to responding to media reporter’s questions.
Moments after San Miguel Beermen point guard Chris Ross went on record to say that Jones is “mentally a baby,” Jones had a creative way of not answering the issue and instead praising his teammates.
Jones had 37 points, 18 rebounds, 9 assists, and 5 blocks as the KaTropa took Game 3, 115-105 for a 2-1 series lead in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals.
Instead of trying to engage in a verbal exchange, Jones commended the games of Troy Rosario, Don Trollano, RR Pogoy, Jayson Castro, and even Yousef Taha, while also saying the team misses Anthony Semerad and Ryan Reyes in action.
Jones was slapped with a flagrant 1 when he headbutted Ross in the 1st quarter of Game 3 when the two crossed paths while heading to their benches for a timeout.
Jones also clarified that he didn’t think June Mar Fajardo’s elbow was intentional. The import went down in the 3rd period when Fajardo inadvertently hit Jones’ breadbasket after a spin move.
Game 4 is set for Sunday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
