Bucks' Jason Terry long for playoff resume Capitals Authenti

Postprzez Helena » 08:29 24 mar 2017

Milwaukee (34-35) enters the game just one-half game ahead of eighth-place Detroit and ninth-place Miami in the East. Portland (32-37) entered Monday just one game behind eighth-place Denver for the final playoff berth in the West, with Denver playing at Houston.
This playoff chase is nothing new for 39-year-old Jason Terry, who has reached the postseason 11 times in his 17 years in the NBA.
He’s hoping to make it an even dozen appearances over 18 seasons if the Milwaukee Bucks can qualify for the Eastern Conference playoffs in the next few weeks.
The Bucks signed him last summer for his leadership in moments like these, as they face the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night in a game with playoff implications for both teams.
“The last month we’ve been in somewhat of playoff mode,” Terry said. “And we cannot shift gears now.
“Although we did drop the last game (Saturday against Golden State), we have to remember what got us to this point. And that’s energy, effort, trust and discipline on both ends of the floor.
The Bucks Dale Hunter Authentic Jersey traveled from San Francisco to Portland on Monday and headed directly to the Nike World campus and the opulent Bo Jackson Center for practice.
The mood was upbeat as the team prepared to face a suddenly hot Trail Blazers team that won in Miami on Sunday behind point guard Damian Lillard’s 49-point outburst.
Terry has played in 115 career post-season games, while the rest of his teammates combined have played in 171.
But some of the Bucks’ http://www.officialcapitalsauthentic.com/Dale_Hunter_Jersey key players have minimal playoff experience. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton each have played in six post-season games, coming when the Bucks lost to the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the 2015 playoffs.
Center Greg Monroe has a zero on his playoff resume — as in zero appearances with Detroit and Milwaukee — and would desperately like to erase that number.
“I can share Brooks Orpik Authentic Jersey all the experiences I want with the guys, but a guy like Giannis himself still has to go through the fire,” Terry said.
“All of us understand that Moose (Monroe) has not been to the playoffs. We want to put him there.
“I’ve been (to the postseason) two years in a row with Houston now, and for the rest of my career, I don’t want to stop. When I signed with Milwaukee they said, ‘Ah, well, you’re not on a playoff team; you’re not with a contender.’
“But we’ve grown into one.”
The Bucks have won Authentic Grant Long Womens Jersey eight of their last 10 games, with the losses coming on this trip to the Memphis Grizzlies and the Warriors. But Milwaukee was able to sweep the Clippers and Lakers in Los Angeles last week to stay in good position.
Five teams are in an extremely tight race for the final three playoff spots in the East — Indiana, Milwaukee, Detroit, Miami and Chicago.
Terry won an NBA title with Dallas in 2011 and Bucks guard Matthew Dellavedova did it with Cleveland last season.
But it will take continued success to gain a playoff spot and possibly move as high as No. 6 or No. 7, which likely would avoid a first-round matchup against LeBron James http://www.officialpistonstore.com/Grant_Long_Jersey and Cleveland.
“If we continue to do that, we will be in the playoffs.”Terry said.
Whether you’re trying to catch up on any Bucks news you may have missed, or if you’re a bandwagon fan now trying to jump on an above .500 team who look increasingly likely to be playoff bound, we have you covered.
