When Jason Terry came down in transition in overtime and pulled up for a transition jumper early in the clock you could hear Boston collectively say, “Nooooo… YES!”
The hot and cold Terry has been more like dry ice during these playoffs but when he got hot in overtime he put up nine straight points and pushed Boston into a fifth game, avoiding the sweep against the Knicks.
It may be short lived, and this certainly doesn’t wipe out a rough season in Boston, but it was nice to see The Jet back. Even if it was just for five minutes.
