Isaiah Thomas shared his thoughts on the incident involving Calvin Abueva and Terrence Jones, which occurred in the 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup on Sunday, June 2.

Thomas, who played for the Denver Nuggets last season, said he had Jones' back.

During the game between Abueva's Phoenix and Jones' TNT, the 2 players were involved in rough play, with Abueva clotheslining Jones and Jones hitting Abueva in the groin.

Andrew Bogut also made his thoughts known about the episode, his reaction aimed at Abueva's suspension.

Bogut was vocal about the brawl involving the Philippines, which had Abueva on its roster at the time, and Bogut's teammates at Australia in July 2018.

Abueva was suspended 6 games for his participation in the skirmish, the most slapped on a player out of that incident.
