Found April 29, 2013 on Celtics Life:
PLAYERS: Jason Terry
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
When the Celtics acquired Jason Terry last July, I believe the one comment I heard more than any other was "he can win you a playoff game."  Well, on Sunday afternoon he did just that: Terry scored the Celtics final 9 points in the 97-90 OT Game 4 victory, preventing them from suffering a disastrous collapse and hiding the fact that once again Boston was horrible offensively in the 2nd half (just 30 points before overtime).  Unfortunately the win still leaves the C's in a cavernous 3-1 hole; and this game will likely be largely insignificant in the annals of Celtics history. So the question is, after a mostly disappointing regular season, does getting this one playoff W make the Terry signing a good move? Follow Mark on twitter @LucidSportsFan

Your Morning Dump… Where I say nice things about Jason “Sunshine” Terry

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. Terry was signed with the express purpose of hitting open 3-pointers, adding energy, and hitting significant shots in the postseason. But before Game 4, Terry was best known in this series for getting beat on defense...

Jason Terry Finally Delivers Clutch Performance Celtics Have Been Waiting on for So Long

BOSTON – Jason Terry has a summer job waiting for him whenever the NBA season ends. The veteran guard, who has expressed a desire to coach in the NBA once he is finished playing, has an AAU coaching gig awaiting him.

JR Smith when asked about Jason Terry: ‘Who?’

The Boston Celtics have an incredibly tall task ahead of them if they want to advance to the next round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. They are returning to New York on Wednesday night to face the Knicks, who have put Kevin Garnett and company in a 3-1 hole.

JR Smith Ejected for Elbowing Jason Terry (Video)

    Over his career, New York Knicks guard JR Smith has been known to commit the occasional “bonehead” type of play. Whether it is an extremely bad shot that didn’t come in the flow of the offense, or questionable decision making, Smith always does something along those lines. One of the keys to his successful season and ultimately winning the NBA’s Sixth Man of the ear...

(VIDEO) J.R. Smith Hits Jason Terry With A Vicious Elbow

The Knicks/Celtics game last night never really felt like a game. Once again, the Celtics struggled to score the basketball while the Knicks rain 3-pointers. The highlight of the night though was in the forth quarter when J.R. Smith threw a vicious elbow at Jason Terry. Smith had the ball in the corner, Terry swiped at it, Smith didn’t like that, and retaliated with a UFC quality...

Boston Celtics Force Game 5 in a Dogfight with New York Knicks

Smith suspended for hitting Jason Terry in the face with his elbow in game three, New York found themselves...

J.R. Smith says if he played Game 4 the Knicks would be golfing right now

No, the season would be over if Chuck Nevitt was like 20 years younger and played for Boston Ok, no it wouldn't. The Knicks keep churning out the trash talk. They must be pretty fired up to be beating an old and beaten up Celtics team missing their best player.

Celtics-Knicks Preview

J.R. Smith may have altered a series with one poor decision. He certainly forced his midweek plans to change. When he dropped Boston's Jason Terry with an elbow to the chin late in Game 3 on Friday night, Smith earned a suspension that left the New York Knicks without their No. 2 scorer during the regular season for Game 4 on Sunday. The Knicks didn't have enough offense...

Game Notes: Knicks vs Celtics Game Four

I just have two notes from game four. Not that I'm upset the Knicks lost, but because I'm running late for class. Again, two notes. One for each team.

Shoutout to my team's fat Buddha point guard Raymond Felton for bringing...
