Jason Terry Finally Gets To Play
Jason Terry had logged exactly zero minutes through Milwaukee’s two preseason games. There was no guarantee he would play at all. Terry is healthy, but he’s also old. The 17-year veteran doesn’t exactly need much practice to do his thing at this point.
Terry’s thing is shooting, and he made the only three he attempted against the Pacers. Terry played 11 minutes, made a three, missed a two-point field goal and fouled somebody. That’s about all Milwaukee needs to see from the oldest Buck in franchise history in the preseason.
Despite his age and lack of minutes, Terry still made more threes than Rashad Vaughn in the game. If the young guard isn’t careful, Jet might just take off with his minutes. There was talk earlier of Malcolm Brogdon potentially taking Vaughn’s role–Terry is now in that discussion too.
As much as you’ve got to limit minutes on a 39-year-old player, Terry played over 250 more minutes than Vaughn did last season. If he continues to fend off Father Time, Terry could find himself in a more important role than anybody expected this season.
