Mavericks’ Tyrell Terry shines in Summer League opener



While the Mavericks were never able to get things done in their 22-point loss to the Sixers on Monday, goaltender Tyrell Terry showed flashes of grandeur. At only 20 years old, his professional experience is limited, so the NBA Summer League is important for his growth.

Last season in Dallas, after being selected No.31 in the overall standings in the 2020 NBA Draft, Terry missed much of the season for personal reasons. In fact, the 13 games he played in the G League Bubble was more than the 11 games he played with the Mavericks in the regular season.

With that in mind, Terry appreciated his teammates and fans for the way they had accepted him to come back from his time away from the team.

“I think the most important thing for me to come back to was just the open arms that everyone gave me,” Terry said earlier this week. “No one really judged or questioned me while I was gone and supported me. Even from the fans, I only received love and support. It made it a lot easier to come back and go. ‘get to the heart of the matter.

In his first game to play important minutes in some time, the young guard was by far the best player on the field for Dallas, scoring a record 22 points. Terry did it effectively too, converting eight of his 16 shots, including three of his six 3-pointers.
