NBA Finals, Game 5: Jason Terry Says Mavs Will Break Out

The Dallas Mavericks will play host to the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, and at least one Dallas Maverick is feeling supremely confident.

Despite the Game 4 win, the Mavericks shot under 40% from the field as a team. Jason Terry doesn’t think that the Mavericks will shoot as poorly as they have recently.

Per Jeff Caplan:

“We know we can win any style of game, but we prefer obviously to score 100 points because we know that team over there, that’s not the style they want to play,” Terry said. “So, if we can get to that in this series I think we can take control and it’ll be not as difficult as it has been for us. But, again, those shots that we’ve been missing, I just don’t see us missing those come [Game 5].”

While it’s unlikely that Terry’s comments will motivate the likes of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and the Heat – he had still better be able to back them up. Terry went just 6-15 from the field in the Game 4 win, and if the Mavericks are to take a 3-2 series lead, Terry will almost certainly have to shoot better.
