Jet looking for clearance

Jason Terry is mired in a mini-slump going into today’s tip. He’s scored just 20 in the last three games and shot just 20 percent (3 of 15) in the last two.

More than the numbers, he just doesn’t look himself. He’s been unsure and tentative.

“He’s got to shoot,” Avery Johnson said. “Right now he’s thinking a little too much. He just needs to come off of screens and shoot. Sometimes he messes around a little bit too much in between thinking too much.

“We’re getting him great shots, I just think he needs to come off and shoot it. Sometimes he’s been open and he’s tried to pass. We don’t want him to get the Jason Kidd-itis. We want him to shoot.”
