Herb Jones sets career highs in thrilling overtime win

Former Alabama men’s basketball star Herb Jones had quite the night on Wednesday for New Orleans as the Pelicans defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in overtime, 138-131.

Jones led the charge for the Pelicans delivering a career-high 35 points while nailing five three-pointers which was also a career-high.

The former Crimson Tide star also recorded seven rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and made 8-of-9 free throws. Jones became the second player in NBA history to have at least 30 points, five three-pointers, and three blocks in a game (DeMarcus Cousins).

Jones finished an incredible +20 against the Grizzlies and was an instrumental part in the Pelicans’ come-from-behind victory.
