Video: Terry Rozier stares down Sixers bench after nailing clutch 3 in their face
Boston Celtics rising star point guard Terry Rozier has played some fantastic basketball so far during these 2018 playoffs and is having a great time doing it.
Late in Game 2 of the Celtics’ 108-103 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, Scary Terry drilled a three right in front of the Sixers’ bench and gave them a staredown.

Rozier continues to be a beast in the playoffs, there’s no doubt about that. This was a game that the Celtics actually trailed the Sixers by as many as 22 points in the first half before heading into halftime only down by four following a furious Boston rally.
“We just said, ‘We need to do our jobs, first and foremost, and hopefully if you do that enough of the time you’ll have a chance to get back into this thing,’” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said during his postgame press conference.
"That was a win that was largely attributed to our players and the other 18,000 people in here."

In 38 minutes of action, Rozier had 20 points on 6-of-15 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 from the charity stripe, nine assists, seven rebounds, one blocked shot, and one steal on the night.
Boston, now up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, will look to push the Sixers even closer to the brink of elimination when they travel to Wells Fargo Arena on Saturday night for Game 3.
