Terry: 'Never underestimate the heart of a champion'

Jason Terry had 26 points, 3 steals, and 2 assists in the Celtics' 118-114 triple OT win over the Nuggets on Sunday.

It was obviously a hard-fought battle until the end, and CSNNE's Greg Dickerson caught up with Terry just after it.

"Thank God for this victory tonight," Terry said. "Never underestimate the heart of a champion. We fought until the end. Every shot we seemed to take was short, didn;'t go in, didn't look like we had legs. Paul Pierce, how many shots has he hit? Kevin Garnett, 50 years old, still finding a way. Then I come up with a key steal. Just a tremendous win for us tonight."
