Terrence Jones has been on a tear lately. Since being recalled from the D-League a few weeks ago, Terrence has stormed onto the scene for the Rockets, averaging 9 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Last night, he showed off his defensive prowess, blocking five shots in the Rockets’ win over the Kings, along with nine points, three rebounds and three steals.
Terrence says that his impressive play of late is a result of budding chemistry with his teammates and doing “everything it takes” to help his team:
“I’m just trying to build chemistry with the guys up here, trying to get comfortable up here. I’ve been playing a couple of games and I’m just trying to get in rhythm with everybody, reading everybody, knowing when they’re going to throw the pass, and knowing where to go. This is fun playing, so I’m just having fun playing.”
I mean, I’m just trying to play my game, and just try to do all the little things that can help me stay on the floor. That’s blocking shots, offensive rebounding, whatever it takes for me to stay out there and to be able to contribute to every win we get.”
Teach ’em, Terrence.
