Rozier yielded four points (2-14 FG, 0-10 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 36 minutes in Sunday's 87-79 ECF Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers.
Ugh, that is not how Scary Terry wanted to end his impressive playoff run. Many Celtics struggled during this Game 7 loss. Youngsters Rozier, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart shot a combined 8-for-42. Rozier's night was summed up by his second half breakaway dunk attempt that LeBron James demonstrably rejected. Still, Rozier can hold his head up high, having performed well beyond expectations after Boston lost Kyrie Irving (knee) for the season. In the 48 regular season and playoff games that Rozier started, he averaged 15.6 points, 5.3 boards, 4.9 assists and 2.6 made threes over 33 minutes per game. Rozier now enters the off-season as a restricted free agent.
Rozier had 28 points (10-16 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes during Friday's 109-99 loss to Cleveland.
Rozier was hot on his way to a team-high 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting. The Celtics shot very well as a team (51.4 percent) but were unable to overcome LeBron James and the series will now head back to Cleveland for a Game Seven. Rozier did roll his ankle during the game and appeared to be in some pain but played through the injury. It is very unlikely he will miss the next game but he will certainly be monitored over the next 48 hours.
Rozier delivered eight points (3-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, six assists and three steals across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 96-83 ECF Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.
Rozier suffered another rough shooting night, but was a major part of Boston's successful defensive effort, helping limit the Cavs to only 83 points. Rozier's three steals stand out, but it was his ability to avoid being isolated on LeBron James that highlighted an improved Celtic approach on defense. The third year point guard is shooting a lowly 37 percent during the Eastern Conference Finals, yet Boston has a 3-2 lead. The Celtics will look to wrap up the series Friday night in Cleveland.
Rozier contributed 13 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Saturday's 116-86 loss to the Cavaliers.
Rozier once again struggled on the road as the Celtics were outplayed from the opening tip, eventually succumbing to a 30 points hammering. Rozier has been electric on his home court but road games have been a different story. He will look to find some form on Monday as they try to go up 3-1 in the series before heading home to Boston for Game Five.
Rozier totaled 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 107-94 victory over Cleveland.
Rozier, like many of his teammates, was quiet in the first half before taking over during the third quarter as the Celtics took control of the game. He also shot the ball somewhat better than has been and certainly continues to have a positive impact on the game at both ends of the floor. Game Three is going to pose a new challenge for the young Celtics team as the head to Cleveland to face a fired up LeBron James on his home court. A win in Game Three will go a long way to assuring the Celtics a place in the NBA Finals.
