MANILA, Philippines—As it turned out, TNT import Terrence Jones avoided ejection in Game 3 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals.


Jones’ headbutt on San Miguel Beer guard Chris Ross in the first quarter of the KaTropa’s 115-105 win on Friday was initially called a flagrant foul penalty 1 but was upgraded to a flagrant 2 by the league on Saturday.

The PBA also meted a P20,000 fine on Jones, who was brilliant once again with 37 points, 18 rebounds, nine assists and five blocks to spearhead TNT’s rally from 17 points down.


Beermen forward Christian Standhardinger was also fined P5,000 for his flagrant 1 against Jones.

It has been a rough-and-tumble finals series after three games with TNT shooting for a commanding 3-1 lead Sunday night.

Jones is also tipped to win the Best Import plum during the awarding ceremony where the Best Player of the Conference will also be named before Game 4 tips off at Araneta Coliseum.
