Jason Terry Launched Into Bench Tirade Vs Clippers

A second quarter Jason Terry tirade led to Terry being benched for the night (and also sparked the Mavs from a 14-point deficit to a solid victory). ESPN Dallas recalls the incident: “Maybe the struggling Dallas Mavericks just needed the lid to blow. If so, shooting guard Jason Terry provided the steam Friday, launching into a second-quarter tirade in a 107-96 win over the Los Angeles Clippers. It started with him barking at teammate J.J. Barea during a timeout and followed with Mavs coach Rick Carlisle screaming and emphatically pointing at Terry before banishing him from the huddle. Terry huffed some more as assistant coaches pushed him toward the end of the bench. Owner Mark Cuban had quickly exited his baseline seat and leaned over Terry to try to cool down his Sixth Man of the Year candidate just as the Mavs were under the gun early to the Clippers, trailing by 14 points with 9:54 left in the first half. The Mavs found a spark after the incident and went on to a much-needed victory that broke a four-game slump. Afterward, the team did its best to keep the matter under wraps even though it unfolded in front of a crowd of more than 20,000.”

    “Tirade” is a pretty big word for slamonline.

    Well it is nice to see Carlisle noticing he has Corey on his bench. Easily the best option for the Mavs at the 2. Of course given his m.o., he’ll bench him till game 6 of the 1st round.
    As for Terry (aka the weak link), less emotional outbursts, more production on the court, idiot.

    Jason Terry seems a little unstable lately.

    Terry should win the jerk of the year award.

    He likes messing with people that are smaller than him?

    I really hope that Carlisle will give Corey a lot more minutes.
    Best defender, athlete on the shooting guard position the Mavs have.

    I guess there are some smart bball fans out there. If Dallas has a change, Carlisle has to give Brew some burn, He actually plays D.
