The Celtics have lost the bench battle in the first three games of the season. And Jason Terry is hoping to even that score in games against Washington, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee this week.

"That's frustrating and I'll take that squarely upon my shoulders," Terry said of the Celtics' reserves having been outscored, 131-87.

"And this is a new week. I'm looking to, hopefully, we can get three consecutive games outscoring their bench. We'll see what happens but that's the goal. We try to take it game by game but we'll take it week by week. Last week was a disappointing one for us but this is an opportunity and that's the beauty of it."
