Jason Terry hasn’t been shy about mentioning how much he loves the new spread offense the Celtics are running. You can say that’s a shot at Rondo for how he had been playing or at Doc for the offense he’d installed… but the fact remains, Terry is thriving.
And in this wild week of “We’re better off without Rondo” vs. “We’re not better off without him,” Terry has been one of the poster boys for the anti-Rondo argument.
But why is Jason Terry on fire lately? Why is he shooting 14 of 22, including 5-11 from 3, over the past 3 games? The theory is he’s getting better touches in better spots. So let’s take a look at every one of those 22 shots and see.
(Note: I’m not counting the Miami game as they had prepared for the game with Rondo, and got late word they’d be without him. Besides, Terry shot 4-12 in that game including 1-7 from 3. This is an analysis of the “new” offense, and Terry’s 3 game burst.)
Game 1: January 30. Celtics 99 – Kings 81.
