With another triple-double effort in Game 4 of the Commissioner’s Cup semifinals, Terrence Jones has helped bring back TNT to the PBA Finals.
Jones was a man on a mission Thursday, leading the KaTropa with 24 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists.
With the win to dethrone Ginebra, the KaTropa have made it back to the Finals for the first time in two years and Jones likes their chances against whoever.
In the other semis bracket, San Miguel leads Rain or Shine, 2-1.
“Man I like my team vs. anybody,” Jones said.
“We worked very hard this whole year to create this chemistry and belief in one another. We’re gonna continue on having that same belief in each other,” he added.
The KaTropa enter the Finals as the no. 1 seed and with only three losses all conference long.
Still, Jones says they’re not the favorites. With TNT making the Finals for the first time in two years and having not won a title since 2015, the KaTropa certainly have that chip on their collective shoulders.
That starts with Jones, who would for sure want to finish the job this conference with a championship.
“This is my first time here so I’m just experiencing everything and taking it one game at a time. I don’t feel like we’re the favorites,” Jones said.
“I know we haven’t won in a long time so we feel we’re the underdogs, we’re gonna come in excited an trying to get something special done that hasn’t happened for our organization in a long time,” he added.
