KaTropa get things going with Jones looking like Best Import
The former Houston Rocket leads the league in scoring for TNT with 33.86 points per game. He also has 15.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.4 blocks per outing.

Terrence Jones looks like he’s a cut above the rest of the imports in the ongoing 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

The former Houston Rocket leads the league in scoring for TNT with 33.86 points per game. He also has 15.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.4 blocks per outing.

Jones' production has the KaTropa on top of the standings with a near-perfect 6-1 mark. However, it’s not only Jones that has TNT in pole position for the mid-season joust.

With Jones dominating, the rest of the KaTropa have taken turns in having big games to back up their productive import.

RR Pogoy, Troy Rosario, and Jayson Castro remain as top locals for TNT but the team is also getting nice production from Don Trollano, Ryan Reyes, and Anthony Semerad.

“I think as a team, that’s what you want, you want different guys to step up so we could keep that energy,” Jones said.

“Nobody on our team is selfish, we’re trying to fin the open guy and it’s just showing in our play,” he added.

TNT is currently only one of four teams to put up over 100 points per game in the Commissioner’s Cup.

The offense is running like a well-oiled machine. But the secret behind the KaTropa’s 6-1 record is defense says Jones.

“I think it’s just from the defensive end [6-1 record]. I think we’re doing a great job of playing defense and it’s getting us easy points,” the prolific import said.

“And our shooters, different guys have been stepping up you know and they’ve just been playing very well. So it’s just been a lot of guys coming in the game and ready to play. It’s been just a lot of great play by everybody,” Jones added.
