Jones added that although he thought the play involving the pool was “interesting play” he did not think it was an attempt to hurt anyone on the floor.
“I don’t think Poole or anyone else is a dirty player in this series,” Jones said. “But it’s an interesting play. That’s all I can say about it. It’s not a normal play that happens normally, but I do not think he’s trying to hurt 12 people in any way.”
