Jason Terry is Not Impressed By the Miami Heat’s 20-Game Winning Streak

by March 15, 2013

Well, of course. Jason Terry is the same guy who claims to hate Miami, says he plans to “kill” them, and has publicly criticized Ray Allen for taking his talents to South Beach. Terry now says that the Heat’s 20-game winning streak is unimpressive (Paul Pierce, meanwhile, hopes Miami loses every game the rest of the way.) Per ESPN: “Not really impressed with it or anything that they do,” said Terry, who has a history with Miami from his Dallas days when the two teams met in the 2011 Finals. ‘So, for me, it’s more about what our team is doing and how we’re coming together as a unit.’ Silly as it might sound, Terry suggested the Celtics are more concerned with earning some revenge from the bottom-dwelling Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday than the expansive winning streak the East-leading Heat might be carrying when they visit TD Garden on Monday. If they earn two more wins before Monday’s game, the Heat — who have eliminated the Celtics in each of the past two postseasons, including in seven games in last year’s Eastern Conference finals — will be tied for the second-longest win streak in NBA history (22 games by the 2007-08 Houston Rockets) when they visit Boston. Ironically, it was this Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce core on the court when the Celtics snapped the Rockets’ streak on March 18, 2008 — five years to the day of the Miami-Boston matchup.”
