Rookie forward Perry Jones III made the most of some unexpected playing time Friday against Orlando, scoring eight points with a career-high five rebounds in the Thunder's 117-104 win.

Jones filled in for an injured Hasheem Thabeet (sore back) and made four of five shots in 11 minutes, 14 seconds. It was the most field goals he's made in a game.

“I felt comfortable thanks to the vets talking to me and getting me ready,” Jones said after the game. “They knew Hash wasn't playing before I did. So they've definitely been preparing me since shootaround (Friday).”
