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 current win streak, which sits at an amazing 20 games in a row. “Not really impressed with it or anything that they do,” Terry told ESPNBoston.com’s Chris Forsberg. “So, for me, it’s more about what our team is doing and how we’re coming together as a unit.” It should be noted that Terry played against the Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, so any negative feelings he has toward them are not necessarily new. That being said, you have to be pretty stubborn to refuse to admit that winning 20 games in a row is an amazing feat. Paul Pierce said he is not concerned with what the Heat are doing, but did admit that he is impressed with their streak. “It’s rare when you’ve got a team that plays so well to be able to do that,” Pierce said. “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.” Another reason the Celtics are downplaying the Heat’s success is that they will host Miami in Boston on Monday. If Miami beats the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday and the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, they will be defending a 22-game win streak at TD Garden. We know Terry loves the Celtics, otherwise he wouldn’t have gotten this tattoo. That being said, he and the rest of the Celtics are playing it cool if they say they aren’t concerned with the Heat’s streak. They would love the chance to snap in on Monday night.
