VIDEO: Hornets’ Terry Rozier clearly wasn’t ready to get drenched after his game-winner
Charlotte Hornets guard Terry Rozier was so ecstatic after hitting the game-winner over the Golden State Warriors on Friday at Spectrum Center. So much so that he probably forgot about the drenching from his teammates that’s coming his way.
As the red-hot Scary Terry was speaking in his postgame interview, Hornets players Devonte’ Graham and PJ Washington decided to cool him off with some good old water bottle shower. Here’s the hilarious clip which left Rozier shivering from the cold:

After scoring just 16 points in the first three quarters against the Dubs, Terry Rozier absolutely took over in the final 12 minutes. He scored 20 of his game-best 36 points in the fourth, on a blistering 12-for-19 shooting clip from the field and 8-of-11 from long range. He also recorded four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 39 minutes.
The 26-year-old guard called his own number and delivered the biggest shot of the game with less than four ticks left in regulation. Rozier got past two Warriors defenders and drained a fade-away jumper to give the Hornets a 102-100 win over the Stephen Curry-less Warriors.
Rozier is indeed having a fine season after signing with Charlotte last year. Prior to Saturday’s game against Golden State, he’s norming 20.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals in 26 games. That drenching he got from Washington and Graham was probably just a teaser of what’s in store for him in the Hornets locker room.
