What’s up with Terrence Jones?

(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

The Tale of Two Terrence’s continued yesterday, and showcased itself in both halves against Alabama. We saw early on in the game a Terrence Jones who simply looked disinterested in defense, soft drives to the rim, and basically lost in transition. The Crimson Tide exploited Jones’ confusion and chipped away at Kentucky’s lead with him in the game. It is frustrating to watch a pre-season All-American struggle when we know his potential is so much greater. Jones had a plus/minus yesterday of -18. The last time he had a rating that low was his three-game skid heading into the infamous pinky injury. You would have a tough time arguing Jones played anywhere near an acceptable level in the first half.

But, you need to give Jones credit for a couple of things. First, double and sometimes triple teams were coming almost every time he touched the ball. Alabama isolated JaMychal Green with Anthony Davis, but completely swallowed Jones up. It’s hard to get started when you’re constantly swarmed. This brings me to my next point — what a great job Jones did in the second half, finishing the game as the team’s leading scorer. He made free throws, had a couple of huge rebounds late, and showed a “will to win” in the waning minutes. In the second half, Jones played like we all know he can. He finished with 15 points on 4-7 shooting, six boards and two turnovers. For a guy who was being hounded all afternoon by big bodies, that’s a pretty good stat line.

I wonder though, is there any explanation for Jones continuing to be missing in action for a full 40 minutes? We live in a society that is constantly thinking in a “what have you done for me lately” mindset, and lately, Jones has not lived up to his pre-season All-American expectations.

Perhaps it’s his mental game that still needs adjusting. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist have entered the picture and are seriously taking the limelight — maybe Jones wants the stardom to himself? It could be the lingering pain or numbness from the injured pinky. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to play basketball with a handicapped finger. Or maybe we have just begun to expect too much from Terrence Jones altogether. His incredible performances a season ago were just exceptions to the norm? There’s no doubt Jones has talent, but do we demand too much from him? Terrence may not want to be the leader we all expect him to be, he may be content being third- or fourth-best (and on this Kentucky team, that’s still better than most). I’m just trying to pinpoint a cause for the ups and downs we’ve witnessed. Because one game I’m convinced he has shaken off the cobwebs and back in his All-American form, but we have yet to see a sustained effort from him in seemingly forever so it leads minds to wander.

I’m not going to say Terrence Jones the person is soft, but like the team sometimes does, I get the feeling he plays down to his opponents. At times his moves look too flowery – when he should just smash it up the middle he makes unnecessary decisions in the post, or tries for too much finesse. He’ll even look bored without touching the ball. You sometimes see him fall into a lull, prompting Calipari to quickly sit him down. You can’t get into a game rhythm or flow like that. Jones needs to take it upon himself to get in a position to succeed, not look out of sorts when things aren’t going exactly his way.

Terrence Jones is vital in the success of this team, that’s why I’m so critical, but it’s constructive. No one is perfect, and you could point out flaws in every single player on this team. (The fortunate thing for Kentucky is the list of flaws is dramatically shorter than most teams’). But I expect so much from Jones, so maybe I’m just frustrating myself. Kentucky is excellent right now, but they will become other-worldly with him in full-force. I want him to be so good teams are terrified just watching film. I want him to dunk so hard he shatters the glass. I want Anthony Davis to back away from trying to block his shots in practice. Terrence Jones has the potential to be so freaking good; I just want it so badly to happen.

I’m not sure what to make of his overall performance yesterday. Is it the first half Terrence Jones or the second half a Terrence Jones that we’ll see take the floor first in Athens on Tuesday night? I still believe strongly that he will be able to be “back” to his All-American hopes sooner than later. Not to say he won’t have a good game or two between then, but I’m holding out hope that Mount Jones will erupt when we need it most.

    from what i’ve seen the problem with jones is basketball iq. the kid has incredible talent and ability but not that natural feel for the game that the greats have. he is constatly lost on defense when away from his man or involved in a pick and roll or help side d. i also think this explains how both last year and this year he got off to hot starts and then cooled off. when just attacking and playing to score his talent comes out, but when more sets and offensive plays are implemented he regresses as a result of having to think too much about where he should be and what his role is. to me the best example is a play, i think from the indiana game, when the cats came down on a fast break and jones stopped the ball at a wide open three and passed it back out. indiana set their d and the ball was passed back to jones who immediately shot the three he had just passed up! i love jones and hope he finds his balance of attacking and still working within the team, because we are certainly going to need a player of his caliber and potential completely engaged in order to accomplish our goal of number 8!

    I love TJ… and after last season, I was surprised he came back as he was going to go 1st round. However, the way he’s been playing, do you think he will be back for his junior year if he doesn’t turn it around? How will that affect our recruiting?

    It’s gotta be hard for the kid. Everytime he posts up, he gets double or triple teamed and he either has to pass it back out or go strong to the basket where he either turns it over or gets blocked trying to shoot. With that, he still led us in scoring yesterday and seems to be working with what he’s dealt.

    #5,I agree.Jones is one of the most over rated players in the country. He should have left last year while he was over hyped by the commentators. There is no way he will be as high a draft pick this year.Last year he was selfish and was for Jones(selfish M.Fer as Cal said).This year for whatever reason he is disinterested about half the time.I will be glad when he is gone.

    The post was pretty accurate as I see it as well. There are times when Jones plays like the All American player is was projected to be this year and other times he appears to be lost. The coaching staffs seems to see the same thnig that we do. Jones has played ok for the most part and if he wants to play with the big boys next year he will have to play much better down the stretch.

    You know, I am not going to necessarily argue any points in this article…BUT WHY DO PEOPLE STAY ON JONES WHILE MILLER HAS WASTED JUST AS MUCH TALENT AND POTENTIAL FOR FOUR YEARS? Why does Miller get a pass for being the least aggressive player in the history of UK? Is it because he is a ky kid? Everyone is constantly on Jones, and sometimes, deservedly so, and sometimes, not so much…but Miller gets kudos when he makes a three or a couple of free throws, while conistently playing scared and with no heart. Miller has as much raw talent and potential as anyone on this team…but plays like a girl…yet somehow, this is ok with the media and many fans. Treat the players equally.

    The difference between Jones and Miller is when Jones plays bad it seems to bring the team down with him. And also more is expected from Jones in the coaches eyes than Miller and that is what really matters. The questioning of players from the fanbase will always be valid when the coaching staff seems to be asking the same things.

    #29 When has Miller ever been a pre season all American? As a sixth man, name one better. Whats this hard on you have for Miller? How many games this season has this girly player been the difference between the Cats winning and losing? Who plays better D with the possible exception of Kidd-Gillchrist, out on the floor. The opponents he guards are shooting 18%. He is one of our two viable 3 point shooters and can go inside against the zone and score. His assist to turnover ratio is better than our point guard. He is absolutely the most steadying influence on the team.
    The guy hits the big free throws at crunch time, and hustles all the time. He gets every player involved in the offense and is not a ball hog. Do me a favor, when Jones gives the effort that Miller does, or when Teague plays as unselfishly as Darius does, and when any other player can produce off the bench including the assists, steals, and other intangibles as Miller does you may have a point. Until then pick another whipping boy, Miller is doing his part. So stfu.

    A valid question. When he looks lost, Cal pulls him which wasn’t happening before. Defense is where it really shows, like when he got beat getting back after a missed free throw. The comparison with Miller is also fair.

    back in the day when players stayed for many years it was VERY common for a player to have a “sophomore slump”. As Freshman they play carefree because they feel its not their responsibility to carry the team due to all the upperclassmen, then as soph’s with more responsibility placed on their shoulders they struggle, this is T. Jones

    Part of TJ’s being and personality is that he needs to pose and Flex after he does something significant. When Dicki Vitale and others went on a week long rant about this part of him, he was hurt and confused. He changed his behavior. This period of suppressed emotions has caused what we in the medical community call “ECS” (Emotional Constipation Syndrome). Yes, he is flexually constipated. I say “Flex and pose TJ,to heck with Dickie V”.By the end of January he will be fully recovered and the dirty Vols will be afraid to come to town.

    48 you must be a die hard UK football fan…expecting mediocrity and lowering your expectations. Miller is the biggest waste of potential and talent I have seen in a UK uniform. When a guy has that much ability and skill, and CHOOSES to sit back and not take advantage of that, well, that is just weak. There are thousands of young people that work their tails off to have opportunities like this, and would give anything to have what Miller has. Everyone has lowered their expectations of him because he has been so soft. He could be the dominant player that others are, but he is a wuss, plain and simple. If he played with MKG’s attitude (and that is a CHOICE), then he would be talked about as a lottery pick. It is truly pathetic to see such talent wasted…and to see losers like you kissing his butt just because he is from kentucky.

    Stuart,
    TJ started the game by taking the ball to the rim on a couple of occassions and was fouled. If he made his free throws he would have had about another 5/6 points….so would’ve finshed the game with 20 points. I think he played well….other than not making free throws. He was aggressive and rebounded when we needed him to. Keep in mind this team deosn’t need a superstar. Last year when TJ was putting up great numbers we were losing. It was after others got involved and his personal stats dropped a litle that we started winning. That is the beauty of this team and all of Calipari’s team so far. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy this team. They are really good and it seems (by your articles) that you are looking for something to be wrong. That is Cal’s job to worry about and fix. I’ll take 19 – 1 with wins over UL, KU, and UNC every year!

    come on people. No one is great for every minute for every game. If Jones had sat out during his injury we wouldn’t be having this conversation. He played through it, maybe a little less aggressive because he was afraid of re injuring it. He is an outstanding player surrounded by other outstanding players. None of our guys are going to have huge stats every game because we can spread it around. What we should be saying is we have 6 guys averaging double digits, and no team can successfully defend all 6. Every night the hero is going to be someone else, that doesn’t mean the other guys are having bad games…. it means we just take what is being given, which is really great!

    Stuart Deletes posts. Thats just not cool. I wrote a funny comment with no cussing. It was not bad but it gave Hammer a bit of grief. It got erased. Ive been commenting on KSR for over 3 years and not one comment deleted until today. Hey Stuart, Why be so critical of TJ when you cant take it yourself?Lame.

    This kinda sucks! The guys been playing better, and had a bad first half. Lay off. Seem to remember some big free throws down the stretch. Sorry Hammer, Jerry Tipton won’t be retiring anytime soon. And when he does we already got NJT!!!

    The guy had a mediocre first half and a good second half. You could say the same for Davis. It happens. So why you so fixated with TJ?

    some of the passes made to Jones were very low for a guy his size. Looks like they could get the ball to him in a higher position so he can react faster. I think that would give him a split second faster reaction, especially to double and tripple teams. At least he would be more in position to pass out of that situation better.

    I will say it again, the teams UK plays know that all they need do is bang him a little early and he will disappear, once he gets tired of sitting, he starts to come alive. Take it inside, bang them back and they will learn, of course the refs need to get in the game also, but you cant let them take you off your game or you wont ever have one at UK, cause they will always side with the other guys

    Stuart’s statistical posts are great. His opinion pieces are not. He needs to stick to what he’s good at.
