Jet's new approach gets head start on new year
Saturday against Memphis, Terry took a new tact, one he said he's been working toward after studying lots of film. He's trying to take the ball inside first and using the drive to set up his jumper. His first eight points against the Grizzlies came on drives with three layups and a little floater.
Those set up his first 3-point attempt, which he swished. Terry finished with a game-high 23 points, his first game with at least 20 points since Nov. 28.
"No question, going into the new year, for me personally, I've had a situation where I've had an adjustment to make," Terry said. "Teams are playing me a little bit different defensively. I've watched tons of film, I know what to do now. I don't want to give it away, but it does involve getting in the paint and loosening them up. It's just something that I have to do and I have to remain concentrating on it."
