Jason Terry and the Miami Heat have history. Terry was a member of the Dallas Mavericks team that blew a 2-0 lead to the Heat in the 2006 NBA finals, and then went on to lose four straight.
Terry got his revenge when he help the Mavs upset the Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals for the franchises first NBA title. Terry was asked about the Heats current 21 game win streak, and as ESPN Boston reports, “Terry is not really impressed at all.”
“Not really impressed with it or anything that they do,” said Terry, who of course 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.”
Terry is just being his usual stubborn self, because there is now way at all you can’t be impressed by what the Heat have done.
Paul Pierce is aware of long winning streaks, and was on the floor and a member of the team to snap the last winning streak of this length when his big three stop the 22 game win streak of the 2007-2008 Houston Rockets.
“It’s rare when you’ve got a team that plays so well to be able to do that,” said Pierce. “It’s hard not to keep track of it. Anytime you go to NBA.com or ESPN.com, it’s going to be right there. It’s very impressive what they’re doing. It is what it is. But I think they don’t care about the winning streak.”

Jason Terry said he is not impressed with the Miami Heat's current win streak or anything else that they do, for that matter.
Jason Terry wasted no time developing a hatred for his new rivals the second he signed a contract with the Boston Celtics. He hasn’t even been in Boston for a full season, and Terry already says he hates the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. He also was not shy about taking a shot at a certain player who left the Celtics. On top of all that, Terry is not impressed with the Heat’s...
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...
At this point it has been well documented that the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are not the biggest fans of each other. Despite the Heat’s monstrous win streak, many have speculated that it could come to an end on Monday night when they visit the Boston Celtics for what is always a great game. [...]
The Heat have a former member of the Boston Celtics as part of their starting 5 this season in Ray Allen. The two teams have had a few playoff battles as of late, so of course there’s no love lost between the two teams. Naturally when asked about the Heat’s current 21-game winning streak, Paul Pierce and company don’t really have much to say about it.
On Saturday night, the Boston Celtics avenged their Tuesday night loss to the Charlotte Bobcats by a 105-88 margin, which was done without Kevin Garnett in the line-up. Jason Terry was the leading scorer for the Celtics with 15 points.

"I really don't even care. I hope they lose every game the rest of the season. I just worry about what this team does"-Paul Pierce
I just love this team. No other team in the league is as hardcore as
the Celtics. They don't care about being liked and what other teams/fans think of them. They embrace the rivalry they have with the Heat and
don't try to suck...
Much better.Let’s avoid hyperbole, if we can. Nobody should claim that that game meant more than it did.Sure, the Celtics got blown out by the Bobcats earlier this week. Yes, Jason Terry made it sound like the C’s cared more about beating Charlotte than they do about beating Miami on Monday. And of course, the win brought the Celtics back into a three-way tie for fifth in the...
Thanks to 8 first half turnovers that led to 13 Charlotte points, the Celtics could not put distance between themselves and the ‘Cats early. Boston went into halftime up 50-43. But the guys in green turned it up another notch on both sides of the ball to blow the game open and cruise through most of the 3rd and 4th. Chuck’s prediction was almost dead-on, as Boston wins 108-95...
Tonight, the Celtics will the play the final game of their three game home stand when they host the red hot Miami Heat.

Brandon Bass said he isn't worrying about whether he will be covering LeBron James Monday night and talked about stepping in for an injured KG. Paul Pierce had another efficient game and credited the team with stepping up defensively in the second half. Jason Terry was perfect from downtown (3/3 3FG) and said that they knew they gave the previous games away to the Bobcats and...
