Jason Terry flashes back to Golden State
DALLAS – The Mavs have had more lopsided playoff losses in recent years – thanks to a 10-0 run in garbage time – but Thursday night’s 95-79 whipping by the Thunder made Jason Terry flash back to 2007.
“[Expletive], Golden State. Golden State, [expletive],” Terry said when asked whether he’d ever been through anything like this game, using a couple of different colorful words to express his frustration. “We had no rhythm and just couldn’t figure it out.”
It’s as bad as Terry as felt after a playoff game since the 111-86 rout that sealed the eighth-seeded Warriors upset over the 67-win Mavericks.
“You’ve got to take your hat off to them,” Terry said. “They came out and played a hell of a game tonight, kicked our ass in every facet of the game.”
