Marshall: Can't say enough about the energy Terry brings

Jason Terry put up a team high 20 points for the Celtics against the Raptors on Saturday afternoon.  Donny Marshall and Gary Tanguay took some time to discuss Terry's role on the Celtics.

"You look at the bench numbers, the bench scored forty-one points and (Terry) was starting this game."  Said Marshall. "That's the kind of player he is.  He's going to have ten point nights, but then he is going to bounce back and have twenty point nights.  And he can score in so many different ways.  You can't say enough about (Terry) and the energy that he brings."

Marshall also elaborated on how you can tell Terry enjoys playing with a point guard like Rajon Rondo.

"Jason Terry loves it." continued Marshall. "Get to a spot.  He can still shoot, he can still score.  Rondo will find you."

Another quality that Mashall likes in Terry is his ability to step in during clutch situations.

"He knows when to step up and step in to the right situation when they need him in big games.  And Doc's going to put him out there in a position to help them."

Patriots players got a refresher on NFL social media policy because of Brown

Patriots players got a refresher on NFL social media policy because of Brown

FOXBORO -- Antonio Brown's live stream of coach Mike Tomlin's postgame speech on Sunday had a ripple effect that traveled all the way to New England: Just in case Patriots players weren't familiar with the league's social-media policy, they were reminded of it this week. 

"We were reminded of that," receiver Chris Hogan said. "I’m not sure what the timing is, but obviously, I don’t think we’ll see guys doing that in the locker room."

Players are prohibited from using social media in the locker room until media outlets have been given an opportunity to talk to players following games. Brown's Facebook Live video, which garnered national attention almost as soon as it went online, was shot well before the visitor's locker room at Arrowhead Stadium opened following Pittsburgh's win over Kansas City.

"We have a team policy on that," special teams captain Matthew Slater said. "Strictly enforced. We go from there."

Of course part of the reason the video became as widely disseminated as it did was because it caught Tomlin calling the Patriots "a--holes."

"I have a lot of respect for Coach Tomlin," Slater said when asked about Tomlin's speech. "I appreciate the way he prepares his team. I’ve had a good working relationship with him over the years, and it will continue to be that way."

Both Slater and Hogan insisted that their focus will be trained solely on preparing for what Tomlin and his players will do when they arrive to Gillette Stadium Sunday night -- not what they say leading up to kickoff.

"You come in here, you're automatically bought into what we preach here, what coach [Bill] Belichick preaches," Hogan said. "It's football. We're 100 percent football here. It's not about anything outside. Between the media or whatever it is outside of football, whatever we're doing. When we come here, it's 100 percent football. That's all we're focused on is the opponent we're playing that week."
