By “Jet” there are two meanings which consist of Jason Terry but also the Boston Celtics can start to gain momentum into takeoff before a huge three-game road trip against the Houston Rockets (9-11), San Antonio Spurs (18-4), and Chicago Bulls (11-9).
First, it’s the Dallas Mavericks. Subsequently, this Wednesday ESPN clash will feature Jason Terry and his former team. While it was extremely peculiar seeing Ray Allen play for the Miami Heat on opening night, the Jet will face the same type of essence in the TD Bank Garden.
Coming off a commanding victory against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, all eyes will be locked in to see if Doc Rivers’ team can build a consistency or if it is one of those horrific performances.
“Right now, we’re just concerned about us and stringing together some games,” Terry said. “We’ve won one, lost one, won one. We’ve got to put together three, four, five games in a row. So that’s where our focus is right now. Dallas just happens to be the next opponent, and hopefully we can put together a string. That’ll be two in a row for us.” (via ESPN Boston)
Terry’s mindset going into tonight’s game is prime. He wants the team to think like a team, not the fact he is going toe-to-toe with his former players, coaches, and Mark Cuban.
With a lot of unknown through both of these teams, this game is a big one. Dallas, who is without with their star player Dirk Nowitzki, is fighting to gain some kind of stature in the early stage of the 2012-13 season. The home team, Boston Celtics, is trying to circulate the three c’s on the floor: confidence, consistency, and chemistry.
The Boston Celtics are a tough opponent when Rondo gives the ball to Kevin Garnett in the post. The “Big Ticket” is posting 16.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game thus far.
The prominent factor in this game is if Jeff Green and company can outplay the struggling bench presence of the Dallas Mavericks. In this season, Celtics’ bench is recording 30.8 points per game.
With all of that being said, tonight’s battle will be one to watch. Check it out on ESPN at 8 p.m.
