Terrence Jones had a woeful shooting night during Game 4 of the 2019 Commissioner’s Cup Finals.
The 27-year old former Houston Rockets forward shot 38% from the field (12/31) and was even more miserable from the stripe making only 6-of-16 or 37%.
The 10 missed free throws were big as it was still anybody’s ballgame up until the closing moments with San Miguel eventually outlasting TNT, 106-101, to level the best-of-seven series at 2 games apiece.
KaTropa active consultant Mark Dickel, however, isn’t about to make a big deal out of their import’s horrible shooting percentage.
“There’s nothing you can do about it. It’s either he’s gonna make them or not. He’s more than capable of making them so it’s not such a big deal,” said the 42-year old native of New Zealand.
Jones still managed to put up solid numbers as the newly crowned Best Import finished with 32 points, 16 boards, 6 assists, 6 steals and 2 blocks in a no-relief job which unfortunately went for naught.
With the series down to a best-of-three affair, Dickel is now focused on coming up with the necessary adjustments for the pivotal Game 5 which is scheduled on Wednesday, August 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“Life goes on and we got to find a way to make a couple of adjustments, find a way to come back and win the game on Wednesday,” he said.
