Jason Terry has a firm grip on reality and he knows two things right now.

First, with several rotation players missing, he knows he must pick up the scoring slack.

Second, he's not worried about those who aren't able to contribute, for whatever reason.

Terry missed a 3-pointer with just over two minutes left Wednesday night against Memphis, a shot that could have made it a four-point game and given the Mavericks serious hope of completing a rally from 15 points down.
