Terry goes unmasked
By Tim MacMahon
NEW ORLEANS -- He's just plain, ol' Jet again. No more Jet-I Knight.
Jason Terry ditched his customized clear plastic mask after wearing it for a couple of games. Doctors advised him to wear it for the rest of the season, but he said he'd get rid of it as soon as the feeling returned to the left side of his face, where he had a broken orbital bone surgically repaired.
The results in Jet's first few maskless minutes have been impressive. He made a nice baseline spin move past Hornets rookie Darren Collison to knock down a short jumper and hit a 3-pointer a few possessions later.
It's been nothing but Dallas dominance so far, with the Mavs cruising to a 27-11 lead.
