Jet: Not the time to get frustrated

Jason Terry is the eternal optimist. So it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that he showed up to talk to reporters with a smile stretched across his face.

“I am smiling because we are back home where we are loved, away from all of that voodoo down there in New Orleans,” he cracked. “More importantly, we have another opportunity come out and change the momentum of this series with a win. That is where our sole focus is.”

Has the team’s confidence waned any after two brutal losses?

“Not at all,” he countered. “This is a building where we have great success. We know our fans are behind us. We know that other team over there is a great team, but we are going to put our best foot forward and go after them.”

Terry admitted that frustration crept into the locker room against the Warriors a year ago.

“We learned from that,” he said. “I thought last year at this same point in the series with Golden State, we got kind of frustrated and we did not play well frustrated. This year it’s a whole different mindset. We realize we have a great opportunity now to get back in this series at home.”
