TNT's Terrence Jones was ordered to pay up for headbutting San Miguel Beer's Chris Ross in Game 3 of the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup finals on Friday.

According to a report by ABS-CBN Sports, Jones was docked P20,000 for the infraction.

Jones charged with his head against Ross as a reaction to the latter's taunting midway in the first quarter.

Jones, frontrunner for the Best Import award, was called for flagrant foul penalty 1 (F1) and was ordered to sit out the game for 3 minutes. It was later elevated to flagrant foul penalty 2.

San Miguel’s Christian Standhardinger was also fined for P5,000 for an F1 call.

TNT won Game 3 115-105 for a 2-1 series lead over San Miguel.

Game 4 is at Araneta Coliseum on Sunday.
