The Warriors are in Houston to take on the Rockets tonight. Both teams have yet to lose a game this season, but both enter the game with some injured bodies. Patrick Beverly and David Lee are both nursing hamstring injuries and Terrence Jones is out a week with a contusion to his peroneal nerve in his leg.
With Beverly out of the game, Jason Terry figures to see more action tonight. He’s been averaging about 21 minutes a game and will have to go up against the Splash Brothers. Terry respects their game and according to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group, he sees greatness when talking about Steph Curry and Klay Thompson:
Rockets guard Jason Terry on Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson: “I see greatness..They are the top, they are the crème de la crème of shooters.”

High praise from the NBA champion and former Arizona Wildcat. Terry is not known for giving compliments, he’s usually a feisty competitor with a knack of getting under your skin. Curry and Thompson are quickly emerging as the premiere backcourt in the NBA and everyone is starting to take notice.
Terry is in his first year with the Rockets, he was traded by the Sacramento Kings before the start of the season. He is averaging 8.3 points a game and is looking to add another title to his resume.
