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."

The Jets’ quarterback situation took a comically typical turn Monday, as Ryan Fitzpatrick will be under center after an MRI revealed that Geno Smith has a torn ACL.
After starting New York’s first six games of the season, Fitzpatrick was demoted to backup for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Smith was injured on a sack by Baltimore’s Matt Judon, forcing Fitzpatrick back into action.
After leading the Jets to a 24-16 win, Fitzpatrick made his dissatisfaction with being benched known.
“The biggest thing in this game in order to last, is to have belief in yourself,” Fitzpatrick said in his postgame press conference. “Because when the owner stops believing in you and the GM stops believing in you and the coaches stop believing in you, sometimes all you have is yourself. That’s something that I’ve had to deal with before. That’s something I’m dealing with now.”
On the season, Fitzpatrick has completed 136 of 237 passes for 1,561 yards with six touchdowns and a league-leading 11 interceptions.
