Found March 18, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Tonight, the Celtics will the play the final game of their three game home stand when they host the red hot Miami Heat. As you probably know, the Heat are currently riding a 22 game win streak with the media at their backs. On the other hand, the Celtics have won their last two games over the Raptors and Bobcats, with the win over Charlotte coming without KG. According to 10,000 computer simulations, the Heat have just a 34% of continuing their streak tonight. Let's hope the computers are right. Here are the five things: 5. HAVE WILCOX STEP UP: As horrifying as it sounds, there is a chance that Kevin Garnett won't play tonight. If this happens, the C's will really need Chris Wilcox to step up and fill the void. 4. GET GREEN SOME MORE SHOTS: Against Charlotte, Jeff Green scored just 10 points on 5/9 shooting. If they're going to win this one, they will need around 15-20 points out of this guy. They need him at his very best. 3. DRAW FOULS: The Celtics haven't really had a free throw problem at all recently, but getting a few more foul shots wouldn't hurt anything. Try to avoid taking fade-aways and lean in when you're in the paint. 2. GIVE TERRY PLENTY OF OPEN SHOTS: When Jason Terry is open, he rarely misses. Against the Bobcats, Terry shot a perfect, 3/3 from behind the arch. If he has a good shot in shootaround, make him one of your top scorers. 1. REBOUND: All season, the Celtics have been a pretty solid rebounding team. But tonight, they'll have to dominate. No second chance points for Miami. If they allow 3 shots on every defensive possession, they will lose by 40. Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 8:00 pm ET. You can see it on ESPN.

Jason Terry selling Mercer Island mansion for $2.5 million (PICS)

Jason Terry thinks so highly of his Seattle, Washington roots that he has his old area code, 206, tattooed on his chest.  But the roots aren’t deep enough to where Terry feels the need to keep a home in the Seattle area. Terry earns his paychecks in Boston these days.  And even though his net worth is roughly $25 million (I’m skepitcal it isn’t more), he doesn’t need houses...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jason Terry thought the season would be easier

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. “It’s been a process — one that, honestly, I thought would be a little smoother, a little easier,” said Terry. “But it hasn’t, and that just goes to show you that all things don’t necessarily mean...

Heat escape Boston with a 105-103 win; streak hits 23 despite career game from Jeff Green

Ugh. The Celtics, without Kevin Garnett (and Rondo, and Sullinger, and Barbosa..) had the Heat right where they wanted them. They were up 17 in the first half, and 13 with 8:27 to go in the 4th. But they couldn't close the door. Lebron James was too good, scoring 37 points to go with 12 assists and 7 boards for Miami. The Celtics were led by Jeff Green's career high 43 points...

The Prayer List: Jason Terry And Joakim Noah Need Your Well Wishes

Ed’s Note: There are times when dunks, crossovers, insane tackles and other things that can cause extreme embarrassment to players and raucous laughter amongst the consumers of live sports, yet don’t meet the (singular, as in mine, and mine only) criteria of what should be an obituary post. Therefore, I figured I’d try something new. [...]The post The Prayer List: Jason Terry...

The Miami Heat have extended their winning streak to 22 straight games.  Now, they will face the Boston Celtics.  Regardless of the current state of the Celtics, Boston has always been a tough opponent for anyone facing them.  However, they may be without Kevin Garnett.

Kevin Garnett Battling Adductor Strain

Kevin Garnett missed Saturday night’s game vs.the Bobcats and sat out Sunday’s practice with a left adductor strain. Although Doc Rivers lists his concern a 1 on a 10 point scale, KG is 50/50 to play Monday vs. the Heat. According to ESPN: Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett will not practice Sunday and coach Doc Rivers deemed him “50/50, at best” to suit up for Monday...

LeBron James Gives Jason Terry the Brandon Knight Treatment

I've been looking for it, but I haven't seen it yet. Brandon Knight has to tweet something in regards to the dunk that LeBron James threw down on Jason Terry Monday night. It doesn't have to be much. Something simple like "I guess everyone is going to quit making fun of me now #jasonterry" or some derivation of that would work. The taunting was...

LeBron James Brandon Knight’ed Jason Terry

LeBron James absolutely crushed a dunk over Jason Terry during the first half of the Celtics and Heat match-up on Monday night.  The poster came only a week after Brandon Knight was dunked on in the same fashion by DeAndre Jordan.  LeBron was also receiving an alley-oop during his massacre of a defender.   Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Fans, media remain fascinated with big dunks over small guys

By most accounts, LeBron James is 6-8, 270 lbs. Jason Terry is a modest 6-2, 180 lbs. I would expect James to dunk over Terry 100 out of 100 times. So… why the hell is the NBA blogosphere still buzzing about James’ dunk from last night? I thought we saw the end of this silliness when Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski lauded Brandon Knight for challenging this DeAndre Jordan highlight...

LeBron James Destroys Jason Terry

LeBron James destroys Jason Terry with a fast break alley-oop jam midway through the second quarter on Monday night. Terry lost the ball before crossing half court and attempted to contest an airborne James from punching home the alley-oop but instead went flying himself and got a post-dunk stare down.

Miami Heat Still Streaking; Win Nail Biter Over Boston

Who did it better? DeAndre Jordan vs. LeBron James

Brandon Knight and Jason Terry both have been the victims of humiliating dunks courtesy of Clippers' DeAndre Jordan and Heat's LeBron James respectively. Both dunks were absolutely filthy, worthy of being named Dunk of the Year but only one can be chosen tops between the two. Each have their similarities and differences.
