The Worst of Terry

As efficient as Terry was throughout the regular season, his performance in the playoffs certainly lacked the same firepower.

Although his scoring output wasn’t drastically different (Terry averaged 2.5 points per game in the playoffs), Terry only managed to shoot 6-of-18 from the field as well as shoot 2-of-10 from deep in the Bucks’ first round series with the Raptors.

Despite managing to save face with his game-changing eight-point performance in Game 6, Terry’s playoff performance was certainly disappointing, considering how reliable he had been for the team throughout the regular season.

In a way, it was similar to how Terry started off the regular season before he eventually found his shooting stroke as the year went on. For any shooter, working through those occasional slumps requires patience for both the player as well as the coaching staff and sticking with a slumping player through it all is key in order to not diminish their confidence.

Considering his age, his specialist-type role and his limited playing time, that rings true for a player like Terry and as we saw this year, there’s always time to turn those shooting struggles around.
