He knew who the teammate was, what the teammate was thinking and what the teammate wanted him to do. So Jones threw up the lob, hitting his soaring teammate in the hands right near the rim. The teammate his older brother and Timberwolves guard Tyus Jones finished the feed with a slam. "I've been watching him so many years now, the way he moves when he wants the dunk, I could tell that's how it was," Tre said. "I just threw it up there, he went and got it. I knew he was going to finish that one." Tre acknowledged that Tyus doesn't get many lobs Tyus guessed he hadn't finished an alley oop with a dunk since his high school days at Apple Valley but Tre said his brother "got up there pretty good." "It was reaction," Tyus said. "Tre threw it up and the reaction is to jump and go get it, so once I was up there I just tried to finish it." The flush brought the crowd nike u of m to its feet, the highlight of Team Jones' 99 91 victory over Finer Way Inc. in a Twin Cities Pro Am game Monday night, July 10, at DeLaSalle High School. The win kept Team Jones (5 0) undefeated in league play. The biggest reaction from the alley oop came from the bench, as Jadee Jones the older brother of Tyus and Tre stood in disbelief. "I've never seen that before, and of course it was Tre to set him up," Jadee nike 12 said. "I was surprised, to say the least." It was a night of firsts for the Jones brothers in what was their first game ever sharing the floor with one another. Tre, 17, and Tyus, 21, played one season together at Apple Valley when Tyus was a senior and Tre was in eighth grade, and Jadee, 31 an Eagles assistant coach has coached both of his younger brothers. But never had the three played with one another in an official contest until Monday. All three started. "It's very cool, and we're making the most of it," Tyus said. The stars had to align for Monday night to happen. Tyus, the player/coach of Team Jones, jumped at the chance to start a nike shoes for girls team and add his brothers to the roster once he found out Jamar Diggs was resurrecting the summer pro am. Still, Tyus couldn't participate until July, per NBA rules. He said he never hesitated in his decision to compete. He's far from the only NBA player to play in a pro am new teammate to be Jamal Crawford plays in a Seattle pro am each year, which former Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine also has played in. "Just a chance to get some good run in," Tyus said. "Working out 1 on 0 gets a little old; you want to compete. Everyone who's a basketball player wants to compete." Tre, one of the top high school players in the nation in the Class of 2018, has a busy summer schedule with countless other basketball obligations. He was able to squeeze in Monday's game before heading off to Georgia to play in the Peach Jam, the premier tournament in Nike's Elite Youth Basketball League, with his Howard Pulley AAU team. But the biggest long shot to suit up Monday was Jadee, who played Division I basketball at Furman but hadn't played in roughly six years because of a nasty ankle injury that has required surgeries. "In the winter, if I'd just jog to the car because it was cold, it would swell up for a couple days," he said. "It was bad. So I hadn't been active, or even sweat or run up and down the floor, for six years."
