Jason Terry….Not Smart

Jason Terry better hope his teammates can bail him out tonight in Game 6 against the Spurs.

Bottom line, you can’t punch a guy. Terry nailed former Maverick, Michael Finley, in the man spot at the end of regulation in Game 5. The NBA suspended Terry without pay.

The Mavericks wanted a fine for Terry, but not a suspension. Sorry, a punch is a punch, so Terry has to sit.

What a shame. All series long the Spurs have had trouble defending the Mavs quick guards, now Terry is down for Game 6 in Dallas. JET let his boys down. The Spurs are going to feel very confident tonight.

If the Spurs win Game 6 and force Game 7 in San Antonio, Terry will be blamed. He lost his cool. You can’t do that.

The Suns bailed out Raja Bell after he got suspended for a closeline on Kobe Bryant. But as David Moore wrote in the Morning News, the Spurs ain’t the Lakers.

Terry is a good guy. He just did a dumb thing. He wasted a punch on a benchwarmer. Nailing Finley wasn’t worth not playing tonight.

Here’s the guy who has to step up: Josh Howard. He was great in Game 2 with 27 points and 9 rebounds. Howard is quick and the Mavs have to find a way to get him back into the flow.

JET better hope there’s not a Game 7 back in the Alamo City. After all, the Mavericks haven’t lost at home this year in the playoffs.
