Jason Terry Says Celtics Have a Lot of Basketball Left in Them


by Marcel Mutoni / @ marcel_mutoni

The Boston Celtics didn’t get the memo about their funeral supposedly taking place last night in Game 5. Instead, it was the New York Knicks who were buried, and now have their backs firmly up against the wall facing a pivotal Game 6 back in Boston.

Jason Terry, never one to shy away from a big basketball moment, says the Celtics won’t be declared dead until their casket is closed.

That day is not soon, according to Terry. Per WEEI:

The “Game 7″ theme repeated itself before, during and after Boston’s 92-86 win in Game 5 Wednesday night. As a result, Jason Terry and the Celtics have a Game 6 on Friday night at TD Garden. Terry led a blazing [11-for-22] effort from 3-point range, drilling [5-of-7] from beyond the arc as the Celtics overcame an early 11-0 hole to beat the Knicks and become the 11th team in NBA history to force a Game 6 after being down 3-0.

“We know every game for us is a Game 7,” Terry said. “We played with tremendous resiliency. The last two games we were able to make shots and play solid defense.” As for his inspired 17-point effort off the bench, Terry said he felt the same as he has all series. “I am pumped every game whether I am making or missing [shots],” he said. “It is all about being resilient. ‘Do you want to pack up your things and go home or do you want to play another day?’ Every playoff series takes a life of their own. Nobody in here is going to quit. It shows you how resilient we are. We know we are starting to jell as a team. Injuries have plagued all season long, but in this series it is all about heart. I believe in this team, the coaching staff. We have a lot of basketball left in us.”

The pressure is now squarely on the Knicks’ shoulders, as they try to avoid becoming the first NBA team in Playoff history to squander a 3-0 series lead.

Boston appears to have gained the mental edge heading into Friday night’s Game 6. The Celtics aren’t dead yet, and New York will have a tough time closing that proverbial casket.

    I’m actually praying for the celtics to go throuh all the way, because I want to see JET’s eyes when lebron slaughters his squad, Dear God please answer my prayer

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    He’s rubbing off on Jordan Crawford. But at least he plays and has a few awards behind him. Jordan didn’t play a second but felt it was his place to talk trash to Melo, Felton and the other Knicks. Pretty stupid thing comment he made too.

  • Drig

    A game’s worth…..Melo simply won’t continue underperforming 3rd time in a row.

    If the Celtics could figure out what to do with Felton, yesterday’s game wouldn’t have been as close as it was. I’m hoping g Doc makes the right adjustment on that for game 6.I say trap him hard on the PnR. If Melo and JR are out there playing Hero Ball again, I like the C’s chances of forcing a game 7.

  • shockexchange

    People forget that the Celtics took Miami to game 7 of the ECF last year. They are sans Rondo and Ray Allen, but they are still very dangerous.

  • Roger Rogers

    Knicks are playing incredibly stupid right now. Theyre not going to the rim (even with an open lane) and instead are shooting 3′s and missing. Carmelo is going back to his holding the ball for most of the shot clock BS and woody is putting out some questionable lineups. They’re playing like the series is already won (which the celtics were also guilty of in years past). Knowing the Knicks luck, they would probably the only team in NBA history to lose a series after being up 3-0 SMH.

  • danpowers

    thats the thoughts haunting most of knicks nation n thats why most of us wont get any sleep till friday night lol

  • Bandwagonfan

    I think its miami who took celts to game 7 . People were like thinking bout celts goin to close the series at a home game 6. Then they realize its lebron theyre up against.

  • Bandwagonfan

    man. I dont want to see celts end up miserable and mighht took some psychological disturbance cause of the king dominance. I mean sorry , no way they will beat a completely healthy and focused heat without rondo, and kg gettin old.Let melo finish the celts, and put on some show.

  • shockexchange

    Yeah, but it wasn’t fair. After LeBron mastered “The LeBron Rules … Keys to Stopping LeBron James,” it’s a wrap for the rest of the L. What has the Shock Exchange wrought?

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    just wondering, is it really entertaining to you to always talk like this? i mean i get this is part of your schtick or whatever but man, this has to be exhausting doesn’t it? and do you really comment for just the joke of commenting?

  • shockexchange

    You know why the Shock Exchange always talks like this? ‘Cause when he crosses half court, he’s in range.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    oh please stop.

  • shockexchange

    “Oh please stop,” < after handing out "that fiddy," the Shock Exchange hears this a lot.

  • Caboose

    As far as trolls go, he’s pretty fun. Idk why you get so worked up, you just gotta know how to interact with him. It can be entertaining.

  • shockexchange

    After “Catch Fade1″ talks reckless, “Catch Fade2″ chimes in … right on cue.

  • Caboose

    Oh come on Shock, you don’t want me to have to quote you. Nah, I gotta, “Note to himself: leave Caboose the %&?#&&?! alone.” Heed your own words there, electrical trader.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i’m not worked up at all…i seriously was wondering. now i just make fun of him, like yesterday. when he threatened to draw on his computer screen with crayon.

    fiddy

    Word used by morons who cant pronounce or for that matter spell fifty

  • Caboose

    Lol, exactly. Fun troll.

  • shockexchange

    Looks like the gang’s all here … except for “Catch Fade3″ who’s somewhere cryin’ cause Rent-A-Center’s not re-signing with L.A.”

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    idk who the gang is. you are just fun to talk to. like talking to a small child about how he views the world.

  • shockexchange

    Look at Caboose all gassed up. The Shock Exchange making friends and influencing people as usual.

  • roger rogers

    yeah we get it, youre trying to be the rock.

    biggie aint from boston

  • Slamonthis

    I knew the C’s couldn’t be swept so easily. After game two last night, there is still lots of game left in the C’s tank. Game 7 could still be possible and maybe an upset for the Knicks. Overall, it’s turning out to be a good series.

  • Redd

    Lol@ Kenyon Martin.

    “Lets color coordinate while being grown men to act like we’re going to a funeral..u know like we’re in high school”.

  • ClydeSays

    Felton was playing out of his mind. That might have been the best I’ve ever seen him. Mind you, there wasn’t an opposing PG to guard him, but still… As a C’s fan, I’m glad they made it a series. Win or lose, they’ll hold their heads high.

  • lights out

    great players do have bad series sometimes, you know. especially when they’re being guarded so well.

  • LeBron James

    shockexchange, can you autography my copy of the LeBron Rules? Thanks homie.

  • LeBryan Nash

    Me too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shooting.guard.319 Shooting Guard

    lol, obviously

  • http://www.facebook.com/shooting.guard.319 Shooting Guard

    i understand what you mean, i know ny is legit, but the funeral thing was an insult to the opponent, i hope anthony, 6thman jr, 7thman lala get beat that’d be somethin

  • Drig

    I think it’s more because of that shoulder. He’s not driving hard enough. Woodson needs to stay focused on the game and not experiment with lineups at this crucial juncture. Plus, JR Smith needs to stop taking so many ill-advised shots.

  • http://basketball-performance.com/ Basketball Tips

    does this mean that the Celtics figured out the Knicks? naah!

  • danpowers

    lol

  • shockexchange

    Of course LeBron. The Shock Exchange would say “good luck” but armed with “The LeBron Rules … Keys to Stopping LeBron James” who needs luck?

  • shockexchange

    Of Course LeBryan Nash. Your time would prolly be better spent working on your midrange game though.

  • Bandwagonfan

    Sorry but im new here. I dont understand what youre talking about. Give me some reference

  • Bandwagonfan

    Sorrybbut celts aint as interesting as ny knicks. If can, i want gsw vs nyk in final lol.if lebron were hit by a car maybe?

    true, true.
