The Golden State Warriors will face the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the first round of the 2016 NBA Playoffs.

As you're well aware, the Warriors will be going without Stephen Curry for the remainder of this series, which most of us assume will end tonight.

Then there's Jason Terry.

Terry, you may recall, wasn't really sure he could figure out what motivates his teammates the other day. So perhaps he figured that guaranteeing victory would motivate them? I mean, what do they have to lose, right?

Best of luck to the Rockets — if my biggest complaint about them is that they're unwatchable because they play uninspired ball, maybe Terry can inspire them?

Not that I'm really rooting for the Rockets, but watching them can be so painful that I hope they don't just roll over and die tonight either.
