PBA: Jones on Pogoy, his favorite target: “That’s my guy”
“I tell him to shoot the ball every time he touches it and today he had a great game, man, and it’s gonna be those nights when you know, they’re double-teaming me and I believe in my guys 100% to knock down those shots and Roger did that tonight for us,” — Terrence Jones on RR Pogoy.

Against Brgy. Ginebra, TNT import Terrence Jones showcased his playmaking abilities, dishing out 10 assists by halftime.

To finish off the Gin Kings, Jones tallied 16 dimes to go along with 17 points,  14 rebounds, and six blocks.

Jones’ favorite target it seems like was RR Pogoy, who went nuclear for a career-high 38 points built around 10 triples.

Pogoy went 10 out of 18 from deep and it was Jones who set up most of his treys.

“That’s my guy man,” Jones said of Pogoy.

“I tell him to shoot the ball every time he touches it and today he had a great game, man, and it’s gonna be those nights when you know, they’re double-teaming me and I believe in my guys 100% to knock down those shots and Roger did that tonight for us,” he added.

The KaTropa have instructions to watch out for Jones dishing out.

And when they receive the ball from their super import, TNT players have license to shoot.

“Palaging sinasabi ni coach Mark na dapat mag-ready kami kasi magaling pumasa si Terrence, tapoas naka-focus lahat yung depensa sa kaniya,” Pogoy said.

“Lagi niya [Jones] ako sinasabihan na every time na ipasa niya yung bola, dapat i-tira ko daw. Kaya yun, kumpiyansa ako. Siya na nagsabi na i-tira ko eh di ba?” Pogoy added.
