OAKLAND – Andrew Bogut briefly pondered Jason Terry’s statement before concluding it was an opponent digging into a bag of tricks and finding nothing more than air, dust and a moldy psychological ploy.
“I don’t care,” the Warriors center said Wednesday morning after being told that Terry “guaranteed” a Rockets victory in Game 5 Wednesday night.
“I mean, we’ll see what happens,” Bogut added. “I’m not going to make any statements. I guess he’s trying to rally the troops or whatever he’s trying to do. So I don’t really give a s---.”
Warriors guard Klay Thompson, asked about Terry’s audacious comment, responded with a sigh and a verbal roll of his eyes.
“Good for him,” Thompson said flatly, not bothering to elaborate.
Put another way, Terry’s faux bold words, uttered Tuesday, barely registered with the Warriors. They essentially dismissed Terry’s dismissiveness.
