Jason Terry watching film of Ray Allen
Terry and Allen’s respective games are more worthy of comparison. Which is why, when the 2012-2013 NBA season kicks off, Terry might be doing Ray Allen-like things for the Celtics, as he’s emerged as the player best fitted to fill the void left by Allen’s offseason departure to Miami. A major part of Boston’s offensive system the last five seasons had been Allen’s ability to work around and off of picks set by his teammates to free up space for open shots. That system won’t change. It’s just in need of the replacement piece.
“I have been watching film and watching Ray Allen, the way he maneuvers and works off screens,” Terry said, noting that one of his goals this offseason has been to become a better jump shooter while curling off of said screens.
“I believe in [Celtics head coach] Doc [Rivers]‘ system. He’ll have me do some of those things, so curling the three, that’s a tough shot, it’s off balance. And that’s just one that I will add.”
