San Antonio Spurs guard Tre Jones logged only three minutes on Saturday night, but that time on the court ended up being rather meaningful for the second-round pick.

That would be because his brother, Tyus, was also on the court with the Spurs facing the Memphis Grizzlies. The occasion marked the first time the two brothers squared off against each other in the NBA after Tre was drafted this year.

The contest on Saturday was actually the second time the two teams met this season, but Tre did not appear in the first game, which was the regular-season opener on Dec. 23. Tre called the opportunity to play his big brother a dream come true at the time, and even called Tyus his biggest role model.

During his time on the court, Tre recorded two points as the Spurs fell to Tyus and the Grizzlies, 129-112. Tyus finished with eight points and eight assists.

The moment proved to be very special for the Jones family. The two brothers each dreamt of not only making it to the NBA, but also facing each other on the court. With the first meeting checked off, Tyus can take the early 1-0 advantage in head-to-head matchups…
