|Derrick Jones: Stuffs stat sheet in loss|
Jones closed Monday's 121-106 loss to the 76ers with eight points (4-6 FG), six rebounds, three blocks and two steals over 21 minutes.
The Scoop: Jones racked up multiple steals and blocks for the third time this season. Jones has a valuable role off the Bulls bench, as no Chicago wing provides equivalent athleticism. His seven-foot wingspan can make Jones a lengthy defender in addition to his known dunking prowess. He infrequently logs more than 20-plus minutes per game, but per 36 minutes Jones averages 12.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.4 combined steals/blocks per game.
