OAKLAND — Rockets reserve guard Jason Terry guaranteed his team would beat the Warriors in Game 5 on Wednesday to send the first-round series back to Houston.

“We believe we can get a win here tomorrow, and that’s going to be a long flight for them to come back home to Houston,” Terry told reporters Tuesday at Oracle Arena.

“I’m guaranteeing it. I mean, if I don’t, then what? It’s a loss, right? So I guarantee a victory because that’s what it’s going to take. I know we can get a win here and this thing back home to Houston.”

The Warriors will play without Stephen Curry, who is out indefinitely due to a sprained right knee.

Asked about Terry’s comments, Warriors guard Klay Thompson said, “Good for him.”

“I don’t care,” Warriors center Andrew Bogut said. “I mean, we’ll see what happens. I guess he’s trying to rally the troops or whatever he’s trying to do.”
