Terry makes good on second chance vs. Bulls' Belinelli

BOSTON If Jason Terry didn't see the replays on television that night, he saw them in his head in the days and weeks that followed.

It was the final moments of Boston's late-game loss to Chicago last month, a game in which Bulls guard Marco Belinelli came up with a loose ball and scored over Terry for the game-winner.

Fast forward to Wednesday, where Belinelli once again had the ball in his hands with a chance to tie the game or put the Bulls ahead.

There would not be a sequel on Wednesday as Terry swatted away Belinelli's shot to help preserve a 71-69 Celtics win.

While the Celtics pride themselves on taking each game as it comes, Terry's teammates acknowledged that this was a game he has been hyping up for a while now.

"Jet's been talking about this game, probably since the last time we played them, every single day he's been saying something about it," said Boston guard Avery Bradley. "He's been wanting this game so bad."

Said Terry: "I just didn't like it. I didn't like ... seeing that last shot go in over me. And I watched it again (Tuesday) night. I watched it again (Wednesday) before the game. And lo and behold, ball ends up in this guy's hands again."

And once again, Terry comes up with a big defensive play down the stretch, similar to how his late-game pestering of Andre Miller on Sunday eventually helped the C's escape with a triple overtime win over the Denver Nuggets.

Making Terry's play even more improbable was that he was only in the game at that point because Avery Bradley had fouled out - a first for Bradley this season, second time in his career.

"It goes to show you, hard work and dedication, you never know when you're going to be thrust into a similar situation," Terry said. "Every experience is a learning one. This time, I learned and it worked out for me."

Crowder, who isn't shy on social media, liked the series of tweets, perhaps saving them as motivation for later.

Crowder had a couple noteworthy moments on Twitter this past season. The first was when he fired back at Celtics fans after the TD Garden cheered for Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. He also exchanged comments with Devin Booker after the Suns guard's 70-point game against the Celtics
