PBA: Nothing to worry about Terrence after ejection
Jones had a minor incident with Alaska’s Jake Pascual late, and was ejected with about two minutes to go in a sure TNT win. He finished with 43 points and 22 rebounds.

TNT has some odd history with imports in a sense that the KaTropa always seem to get uber-talented reinforcements.

Uber-talented but a hothead.

Ivan Johnson and Glen Rice Jr. come to mind.

TNT has another uber-talented import for the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup in Terrence Jones but the former Houston Rocket didn’t even get to finish his second PBA game Saturday.

Jones had a minor incident with Alaska’s Jake Pascual late, and was ejected with about two minutes to go in a sure TNT win.

He finished with 43 points and 22 rebounds.

The KaTropa simply brush off the incident, saying Jones is good.

“Obvious naman na wala talaga siya ginawa. Sobrang napaka-humble na tao and napaka-good guy,” TNT leader Jayson Castro said of Jones.

“Nagha-hi sa lahat, nangangamusta. Even yung import ng kabila sinasabi na you have a great import. Di lang as in sa basketball, pati sa outside makikita mo talaga,” he added.

Jones is averaging 42 points per game so far and TNT is at 2-0 after back-to-back double-digit wins.

The trend in the PBA now is to get resident imports and Jones could be that guy for the KaTropa.

It could be a possibility unless Jones makes his way back to the NBA. He’s that good and that young still.

“Pero syempre, sa age niya at sa nilalaro niya, makikita mo parin na pang NBA parin siya,” Castro said.

“At alam namin gusto niyang makabalik doon, at tutulungan namin siyang makabalik doon,” he added.
