“I don't care if he scores more points than me, plays better than me. “If my team ends up winning, then, that's the matchup that I care about, who wins or who loses.” — Terrence Jones on Chris McCullough.
The 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals is the first PBA Finals in 32 years to have two former NBA first round picks competing as imports.
However, TNT’s Terrence Jones simply does not care about his personal matchup against San Miguel’s Chris McCullough.
Jones says McCullough can dominate the stats but as long as he and the KaTropa win the championship, he’s cool.
“Well for me personally, I’m a winner so the thing to do is win,” Jones said after leading TNT to a Game 1 win over San Miguel Sunday.
“I don't care if he scores more points than me, plays better than me,” he added.
Jones basically got a double win Sunday.
Not only did Jones have TNT taking a 13-point victory, he scored 41 points to go along with 12 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks, and a steal.
McCullough had 33 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and two blocks.
“If my team ends up winning, then, that's the matchup that I care about, who wins or who loses,” Jones said.
