Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. On Friday, Korver finished with 3 points on 1-for-5 shooting in 38 minutes as he was blanketed by the energetic Terry. “Listen, Jason had 19 points, but I thought the thing he did better than anything was he guarded Korver,’’ Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “And he was like glue. He just stayed on him, took away his shots.’’ Terry canned the game’s clinching free throws when he pump-faked on a 20-footer and got Korver to crash into him flying through the air. It was a semblance of revenge for the Celtics, who were embittered by their last meeting with Atlanta. “I took the challenge very personally,” Terry said of guarding Korver. “The last time he was the difference in that game. The guy scores 20-something points in a half and we take that very personally.’’ Globe – Jet no longer a bumpy ride Blanketed. Glue.
