Terrence Jones Stares Down LeBron After Rejecting His Dunk Attempt
The Pelicans’ Terrence Jones has quietly been putting up some nice numbers in limited minutes this season. On Monday, with Anthony Davis sitting out, Jones was louder than a bomb with a career-high 36 points (13-18 fg, 3-4 3pt), 11 boards and 3 blocks in a surprising 124-122 win over the slumping Cavs. One of those three blocks was the block of the night – a surprising rejection on a LeBron James dunk followed by a stare down.
“I just wanted help my team get a win and I think that’s what I did,” Said a modest sounding Jones, who helped his team get some redemption after embarrassingly losing to the Nets by 29 in their last game.
LeBron was also pretty loud in a calm tone after the loss, with a profanity-laced vent to the media about needing a “fucking playmaker.”
