PBA Finals: Chris Ross calls Terrence Jones a baby as SMB loses Game 3
In the aftermath of San Miguel’s 115-105 loss to TNT KaTropa in Game 3 of their best-of-7 PBA Commissioner’s Cup finals, Beermen guard Chris Ross had many interesting things to say in the post-game interview.
Ross explained his side after being slapped with a technical foul in the 1st quarter of the game when he and the rest of the players were headed to their respective benches.
“I got a tech for no reason. I didn’t turn or talk to him or anything. I was looking straight. They thought I said something. You can’t give a tech when you’re thinking something. That was the explanation to me,” said Ross.
Before getting a tech, Ross was headbutted by TNT import Terrence Jones as the two crossed paths once again. Jones was given a flagrant foul penalty 1, a decision Ross claimed should have been stiffer.
“He came and headbutted me. I thought that was more than an F1,” said Ross.
Ross then blasted the import, calling him a baby.
“They can call what they call, but mentally, he’s a baby. I thought I’ve seen people get ejected for headbutts. But I guess not today.”
The Beermen playmaker also took a jab at TNT for them mentioning the psy wars being played in the series.
“If they’re crying about playing mind games, they need to check themselves. If that’s what they want to cry about the PBA, let them cry about that. I guess it worked today because they got 50 free throws. So I guess it worked,” shared Ross.
“If that’s how they want to do it, keep crying to the PBA, because I know that’s what they do.”
The Beermen will try to tie the series in Game 4 on Sunday after falling down 2-1.
Jones had another near triple-double with 37 points, 18 rebounds, and 9 assists while RR Pogoy added 29 markers.
