NEW YORK — The “Game 7″ theme repeated itself before, during and after Boston’s 92-86 win in Game 5 Wednesday night. As a result, Jason Terry and the Celtics have a Game 6 on Friday night at TD Garden.

Terry led a blazing 11-for-20 effort from 3-point range, drilling 5-of-7 from beyond the arc as the Celtics overcame an early 11-0 hole to beat the Knicks and become the 11th team in NBA history to force a Game 6 after being down 3-0.

“We know every game for us is a Game 7,” Terry said. “We played with tremendous resiliency. The last two games we were able to make shots and play solid defense.”

As for his inspired 17-point effort off the bench, Terry said he felt the same as he has all series.

“I am pumped every game whether I am making or missing [shots],” he said. “It is all about being resilient. ‘Do you want to pack up your things and go home or do you want to play another day?’ Every playoff series takes a life of their own. Nobody in here is going to quit.

“It shows you how resilient we are. We know we are starting to jell as a team. Injuries have plagued all season long, but in this series it is all about heart. I believe in this team, the coaching staff. We have a lot of basketball left in us.”

Terry’s fifth and final trey of the night came with 4:57 left in the fourth quarter and put Boston up 80-67 as the Knicks were desperately trying to get back in the game.
