Tyus Jones recorded 16 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), six assists, and three rebounds over 18 minutes in Thursday's 129-125 loss to the Kings.
Jones made the most of his limited opportunity, scoring a hyper-efficient 16 points and leading the team with a +27 plus/minus. Jones is quietly having a very nice start to February, scoring double digits in 83% of his games. He's averaging 13 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.7 rebounds over those six games. Ja Morant is in no danger of losing his starting duties to the fifth-year backup point guard but Jones is worth a long-shot play in DFS tournaments while he rides this mini hot streak.
