In case there wasn’t enough hysteria going on last night at the Garden, Humphries added a little more fuel to the fire by tweeting this out late last night:
Anyone know where I can get a quick Tetanus shot in Boston?lockerz.com/s/265003890

In what could be a preemptive strike, Jason Terry, who played with Humphries in Dallas in 2009 (remember that? Neither do I) had some fighting words for Humphries after the game. (Via Greg Payne at ESPNBoston)
“That was unnecessary,” Terry said. “Some guys are tough. Some guys pretend to be. [Humphries is] one of those that pretends to be. I played with him. Maybe that’s the role [Nets head coach] Avery [Johnson] wants him to have, but he could leave that to somebody else.”
Asked to elaborate on what kind of player Humphries is, Terry said: “Soft.”
Terry maintained that stance, even when informed that Celtics head coach Doc Rivers had labeled Boston as a soft team following the loss.
The Celtics face off again with the Nets in a rematch on Christmas Day in Brooklyn. That contest should now be circled on the calendar.
“Well, Humphries might as well come play with us then, if that’s the case,” said Terry.
