Jason Terry: OKC Thunder the Team to Beat

by February 03, 2012

Despite his self-confidence and bravado, Jason Terry acknowledges that what’s becoming increasingly clear. To win the West, teams will have to take out the OKC Thunder. From the Dallas Morning News: “Jason Terry was the one Maverick who had some offensive spunk on Wednesday night. He also made it clear after the Mavericks’ 95-86 loss to Oklahoma City just where things stand in the Western Conference – for the moment. ‘They’re the team to beat,’ Terry said of the Thunder. ‘They’re playing the best right now, and that’s fine with us. For the time being, they are the team to beat. And they are playing very well together. Can they be beaten? Yes. They just were the better team tonight.’ In other words, the Mavericks know you can’t win a title in February and they like the fact that they have played the Thunder tough in three meetings already this season.”
