This is a recurring trend for Terry. He once again shoulders much of the blame of the loss on his own shoulders.
Terry, one of the NBA's all-time great 3-point shooters, missed 14 of his 15 shot attempts which included him clanking eight of his nine 3-point attempts. To his credit, Terry stood tall when it came time to discuss what was arguably his worst game as a Celtic. "That was frustrating," Terry said of his play. "For me, being a shooter, and getting looks that you wanted and then they're not falling for you, especially when your team needs you most."
Once again, this is an admirable quality in a leader. Then again, looking at that 1-15 box score, I'm tempted to agree with him. Though at the end of the day I know it is a team game and some nights the shots just don't fall.
"We got them great shots; just couldn't make them," said C's coach Doc Rivers. "And I thought as the game went on you know you press more and more to make them and we just couldn't. So, it was one of those games."
