Tyus Jones, the unsung hero of the Grizzlies

Tyus Jones desires something the Memphis Grizzlies can’t give him

Memphis Grizzlies back-up point guard Tyus Jones has been an incredible luxury to have on the team this year and in years past. The steady, guiding hand of Jones— a player that rarely turns the ball over (career average of 0.7 turnovers per game)— has filled in the gaps whenever superstar Ja Morant has gone down with an injury.

Brotherhood Playoff Watch: Jayson vs. Grayson Game 6 But Tyus Jones Is Done

In Brotherhood Playoff Action, Boston turned back Milwaukee 108-95 to force game 7 while Memphis was eliminated by Golden State 110-96.

The Clippers should roll out the red carpet for Tyus Jones

Reggie Jackson was viewed as an inconsequential piece to the LA Clippers championship puzzle when he was acquired in 2019. Who could blame them?. Jackson had gone from an explosive scoring guard who could beat just about any defender off the bounce, to an injury-prone, nonefficient ball hog in his final year in Detroit.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Productive again in Morant's stead

Jones ended with 21 points (8-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, nine assists, one block and two steals in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 134-95 victory over the Warriors. With Ja Morant (knee) out for the series -- and likely for the remainder of the postseason -- Jones has...

Tyus Jones would become a star on the New York Knicks

When the New York Knicks signed Kemba Walker last offseason, the city thought their point guard problems were solved. Unfortunately, that’s just not the way the cookie crumbled.

Grizzlies' Tyus Jones: Posts 19/6/5 in place of Morant

Jones logged 19 points (8-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists and one block over 41 minutes during Monday's 101-98 loss to the Warriors. Jones couldn't be expected to match the production or impact of Ja Morant (knee), but he performed well in the superstar point guard's place despite the Game 4 loss. Jones finished second on Memphis with 19 points and committed only one turnover over a team-high 41 minutes. If Morant misses Game 5 on Wednesday, Jones will likely need to have another big game if the Grizzlies are to have a chance to extend the series.

Should Spurs seek a family reunion with Tyus Jones pursuit?

While Tre Jones is still developing in the San Antonio Spurs' system, his brother just dropped 19 points on the Golden State Warriors in an important playoff game. Tyus Jones has had a career year in just about every aspect of the game this season. He certainly would've been one of the heroes in a Ja Morant-less Game 4 win Monday night if Dillon Brooks didn't decide to shoot the Grizzlies out of the ballgame. Now suddenly finding his team down 3-1, Tyus is likely only a few days away from officially hitting free agency.
