Terry Rozier battles John Wall during scrimmage

John Wall Terry Rozier

Terry Rozier had his coming out party in the 2018 playoffs. His top-notch performance turned heads and forced everyone around the league to take notice. Rozier is hoping to build off this performance in the 2018-19 season.

John Wall, on the other hand, has been one of the better point guards in the league for years. The Washington lead guard has made five straight All-Star Games and is looking to bounce back after an injury-plagued 2017-18 season.

But recently, Rozier and Wall went head-to-head during a workout. The two Eastern Conference guards went at one another and from the looks of the video, they both get their fair share of buckets. It’s unwise to put much stock in workout videos, but both guys look like they’re in midseason form already.

The 24-year-old Boston guard had the best year of his career. Scary Terry notched career-highs in a number of statistical categories including per game averages for points (11.3), rebounds (4.7), assists (2.9), and steals (1.0). He looks poised to take the next step forward in his development.

Wall’s numbers took a slight dip last season, but a lot of that had to do with his injury-shortened campaign. The Kentucky product only played 41 games last season.

While the Celtics head into next season as one of the favorites in the Eastern Conference, the Wizards are flying under the radar. They snuck into the playoffs as the eight seed last season and seemed to underperform at every turn. Washington is looking to recapture its form from two years ago when they took the Celtics to seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
