Jason Terry guarantees Rockets win at Golden State in Game 5
With the Houston Rockets facing elimination, point guard Jason Terry felt that he had no choice but to make a rather drastic guarantee.
The Jet boldly guaranteed that the Rockets would be taking the series back to Houston on Tuesday.
“I’m guaranteeing it,” Terry said, via ESPN’s Calvin Watkins. “If I don’t, then what? It’s a loss, right. I guarantee victory – that’s what it’s going to take. I believe in my group. I know we can get a win here and send this thing back to Houston.”
Terry even doubled down, telling reporters what he would do if Houston goes all the way and wins a championship.
“I’m saying right here in front of everybody, I’m getting a tattoo of a Rockets trophy if we pull this thing out,” Terry said with a smile. “You [heard] it here first.”
What is Terry supposed to say? He’s not going to expect his team to lose or anything, even if they face an extremely uphill climb. Perhaps with this guy out, their task will be somewhat easier. Not too much, though.
