Celtics’ Terry Rozier still hasn’t watched Game 7 tape of 2018 East Finals vs. LeBron, Cavs
The Celtics lost to the Cavs and Rozier struggled mightily. The guard finished with just four points while shooting 2-of-14 from the field in the loss.
“I know I missed a lot of shots. I don’t need to see it,” said Rozier, via Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston. “It’s motivation for sure but it’s not something I want to see. A lot of people around me have gone back and watched it. Obviously, my trainer, my agent, people in my agency, my family.
“I’m cool. I ain’t watching.”
Terry Rozier started for the Celtics in the 2018 playoffs because star point guard Kyrie Irving was out after undergoing season-ending knee surgery. The rugged defender played really well during the postseason, but couldn’t get it done in the pivotal Game 7 against the Cavs.
This season has been an adjustment for Rozier since he’s back to his reserve role. In 69 games for the Celtics, Rozier is averaging 9.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest while shooting 39.0 percent from the field, 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free-throw line.
The Celtics have been very inconsistent this season. Boston was the preseason favorite to win the East this season, but they are only 43-29, which puts them in the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
