Terrence Jones has not gotten a ton of opportunities to display his skills for the Houston Rockets. Three games into the season, the rookie out of Kentucky had appeared in only three games for a total of 33 minutes and had scored 13 points.
But two of those 13 points came in dramatic fashion on Sunday.
With about 8:30 left in the second quarter of the Rockets’ game against the Lakers, Jones got the ball and dribbled up the court. When nobody on the Lakers stopped the ball, Jones just kept going. Los Angeles guard Jodie Meeks attempted to take a belated charge as Jones rose up near the hoop, but Meeks was too late. Jones hammered down a right-handed slam to posterize the unfortunate guard.
Meeks and the Lakers came out on top in the end with a 119-108 win, but Jones’ dunk will live on forever on the Internet.
Check out Jones’ highlight-reel jam in the video below.

OF COURSE HE DID
Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash was caught doing the 'Gangman Style' dance sitting on the bench next to Steve Blake at the Staples Center during the Lakers-Rockets Sunday showdown. The Lakers beat the Rockets 119-108. Kobe Bryant recorded his 18th triple-double with 22 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. "I'm a scorer, not a triple-double player," said Kobe Bryant.
One of the best parts of watching a basketball game is seeing one player dunk over another player, or in other words, put them on a poster. On Sunday night, Terrence Jones of the Houston Rockets put Los Angeles Lakers guard Jodie Meeks on a poster of his own.
