Things are for sure getting interesting between TNT import Terrence Jones and the San Miguel Beermen.

In Game 3 of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals, the Beermen once again tried to get under the skin of Jones.

It looked like it worked early as Jones actually gave Chris Ross a headbutt, earning him a flagrant foul penalty 1.

However, Jones got the last laugh as he came back from a mandatory rest period and led TNT’s comeback from 17 points down.

With 37 points, 18 rebounds, nine assists, and five blocks, Jones’ powered the KaTropa’s 115-105 win for a 2-1 series lead.

Jones has no more words for the opposition’s antics.

“I don’t know man. I don’t really got too much to say about it. I’m just here trying to win,” Jones said.

“I love this game of basketball, I’m not giving any credit to any dirty player. I want to continue talking about basketball,” he added.

While Jones had no more things to say, Chris Ross had some choice words for his import rival.

For the headbutt he got, Ross said that Jones is a “baby” mentally.

Again, Jones refused to comment and instead gave credit to his own teammates who helped him won Game 3 of the Finals.

“I think Troy had a great game, I think Roger had a great game, I think Don played an excellent game today. And Jayson of course,” Jones said.

“I wanna continue talking about basketball and give credit to my teammates on what we’re doing to fight through and continue trying to get wins,” he added.
