James Jones SG/SF CLE 3 months ago

Jones played more minutes in the NBA Finals than he did at any other part of the season. He averaged 18.8 minutes and provided 3.3 points.

Jones was on the court to help the Cavaliers battle the Warriors' small-ball attack. He did not hit a 3-pointer in his last three games. The 34-year-old small forward averaged 4.4 points and hit 36 percent of his 3-pointers in his first year as a Cavalier. As a friend of LeBron James, he could well be back with the team next year, but will have minimal fantasy impact.

Jones played 17 scoreless minutes (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in the loss to Golden State on Thursday.

Jones was on the court for his length and to potentially stretch the court. He should continue to get decent reserve minutes, particularly if Kyrie Irving (knee) is out. The veteran friend of LeBron James will hit multiple 3-pointers in at least one game in the series.

Jones had nine points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt) and two rebounds in 10 minutes in the win over Chicago on Thursday.

Jones did not take a shot in seven minutes in the win over Chicago on Tuesday. He had four fouls.

Jones continues to get a little playing time in each game, which speaks more to the decrepitude of Shawn Marion and Mike Miller than Jones' aptitude. He could still be good for a 3-pointer or two.
