Jason Terry will return to Dallas on Friday when his Boston Celtics face the Mavericks, and he made clear he'll play with an edge to prove the fans and his former team that they should have re-signed him last offseason.

“It’s cool, had to come sooner or later," Terry said. "We’re going to go back there and I’m going to be super-aggressive. We’ll see what happens.”

Terry's former teammates believe the guard will receive a loud ovation on Friday.

Terry played a key role on the Mavericks' championship team in 2011.
