If you missed the Mavericks game against the Houston Rockets last night you avoided a rain storm that lasted a little over 8 minutes and was pinpointed and torrential in the southwest half of the Toyota Center. Doppler radar could barely keep up with this storm.
During a timeout with 4:24 remaining in the first quarter coach Rick Carlisle inserts Jason Terry into the game subbing him for center Erick Dampier. In the huddle coach Carlisle calls a play that puts Jason Terry right to work: “When he called the play I was like ‘For me? Really?’ I hadn’t even had a chance to run up and down the court or even stretch at the scorers table” states Jason to a handful of media in the locker room after the Mavericks victory.
The play was a success with Terry coming around a double screen and burying a jumper that got him rolling just :09 seconds into his first shift of the night.
“When that first one went in I knew it was going to be on!”
You got that right!!!
Jason went 7-for-7 scoring 18 points in his first 8:13 seconds of play and finished the night with 34 points on 13 of 21 from the floor.
