Jones Looks To Stop The Rot - Nov 29, 2012

James Jones
Manchester Giants shooting guard James Jones (193-G/F-83, college: Whitworth) knows that his side need to turn their recent poor form around as they face a tough weekend.

The Giants have won only one of their last nine BBL Championship games, slipping out of the play-off spots, and host Glasgow Rocks on Friday night before travelling to Surrey Heat on Saturday evening.

"We've had a good week in practice, a couple of players have knocks so we've been a bit down numbers-wise, but we had a lot of work to do" said Jones.

"We're in a bit of a rut having lost five on the bounce, but in most of those games we've lost we've been in a decent position until down the stretch, although a couple of times we've started badly and given ourselves too much to do.

"We've can't do that against Rocks. We lost by three up there, and we were comfortable until half-time. We then started trading baskets before missing a couple and they went on a run.

"Kieron [Achara] has gone from them, but I know they've got a new big guy, and I'm sure the other guys will step up and fill in. They'll be tough and Sterling has them playing some good defence, but we need to concentrate on our game and hopefully that will be enough to get the win."

Jones will face one of his former clubs when the Giants travel to Surrey Sports Park on Saturday to face a Heat team who are third in the BBL Championship table:

"They've started the season well" said Jones. "With no disrespect to them, I'm sure they've surprised a few people.

"They've got a couple of players who've been there for a while and are comfortable with Creon's system. They play well together and have some athletic guys and good shooters.

"It's a tough game for us the night after we play Rocks, but we have to be ready and we're well aware we haven't won a game on the road yet. When you're losing, you want to get on and play games to end the streak."

Heat were Jones' first BBL club, helping them to a BBL Trophy and play-off double, and 28-year-old Englishman admits that it's a very different organisation to the one he left: "I left in 2008, and although I still speak to a couple of fans when I'm down there, there's no one left from the playing side. Mike [Martin] and Dean Williams where the last two players left from that team - Julius Joseph didn't join until the following year - and they've got a different coach, name and home court.

"It's always nice to play at my former clubs, whether it's Heat, Tigers or Raiders, but most important thing now is Giants."
