Video: Celtics’ Terry Rozier has funny reaction to Sixers’ big win
The Boston Celtics may have lost to the Philadelphia 76ers, but at least Terry Rozier won the battle of the words.
Boston wasted a 15-point lead and eventually fell to the Sixers, 118-115. It was Philly’s first win against the Celtics this season, avoiding a sweep and ending their season series 3-1.
It was undoubtedly a huge win for the Sixers, especially at this point of the season when they are looking to build momentum heading to the playoffs.
Rozier, however, poked fun at Philly for their reaction with the win and said that he ‘thought the confetti was going to drop’ after the game.

Did someone say salty? Terry Rozier is of course referring to the legendary confetti game last year in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, when the Celtics and 76ers were engaged in a back-and-forth affair in Game 3.
Marco Belinelli, now on the Spurs, drilled an insane off-balance, one-footed jumper in the corner that won the game! Confetti fell and everyone was thrilled…except Belinelli’s foot was on the line, meaning the game was still tied. Overtime commenced and Philly lost in brutal fashion.
While the 76ers might have gotten the best of the Celtics on the court tonight, Rozier’s witty riposte left him with the last laugh.
