Barea Credits Terry for Sixth Man Success
The lessons J.J. Barea learned in Dallas continue to serve him well in his post-Maverick life.
The little point guard has embraced the sixth-man role with the Minnesota Timberwolves, proving that he took good notes in those seasons when he was watching Jason Terry do that job with the Mavericks.
“Somebody told me last week I struggled the whole game and in the fourth quarter, I had a good one,” Barea said Sunday night. “I told them I learned from Jet. He used to do that twice a week. He’d get so fired up for the fourth quarter and knock down shots. I learned from that.”
