Derrick Jones Jr. logged 29 minutes off the bench on Thursday and scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting with two triples, seven rebounds, two steals and a block.
Jones was a DNP-CD last game against the Nuggets and when he got his opportunity tonight he made the most of it. He was a team-high plus-17 on the evening and helped propel the Heat to a lead that they wouldn't give up. He's forcing his way into the rotation, but the Heat are so heavy on wings it's hard to trust anyone. James Johnson started and played 20 minutes with 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, a 3-pointer and a block.
