Must win is a little harsh for Game 1 in a best-of-7 series, but Jason Terry is no stranger to playoff series. He said Game 1 is critical to set a tone.
"We must come out and establish the pace, tempo and physicality, and make this game a very physical game and just control the tempo," Terry said. But a must-win? "I would say so. I mean, every game is a must-win in the playoffs. What better way to get it started than in Game 1 to build your confidence, especially on the road."
