VIDEO: Terrence Jones on rising as a star with Dwight Howard
Terrence Jones talks being a part of Big Blue Nation, his time in the D-League, and playing next to Dwight Howard.
Before Friday night's Rising Stars game, Rockets forward Terrence Jones spoke to reporters about his time in the D-League, working with Dwight Howard, and the experience of being a Wildcat in the NBA along with his teammates Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and All-Star Anthony Davis.
Jones said his time with the Rockets' D-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, played a big part in him becoming the breakout player he is this season.
"It just helped me out a lot," Jones said. "Because when you're not playing, being able to go down there and work on what you've been working on in practice and get your confidence up, it helps a ton."
Jones said he still keeps track of his former teammates in RGV, even mentioning their high scoring pace. Jones has become the power forward the Rockets have needed this season, averaging 11.7 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. With Howard and Jones on the floor, the Rockets outscore their opponent by over six points per 100 possessions.
