Jones spoke to KSTP Sports before the game. He discussed how much fun it is to play in the Pro-Am, how he balances having fun with the want to win the games, how he felt he did this past NBA season, and what it was like to play his brother, Tre Jones, and the San Antonio Spurs in the play-in tourney game. 

In the game itself, Team Tyus defeated Team 4 The Love, 120-119. The Twin Cities Pro-Am runs through August 13th.
