Terry Rozier’s 23 points and ankle-breaking three over Eric Bledsoe in the final seconds of regulation in GM1 vs the Bucks made the casual basketball fan take notice.
Thanks to Bledsoe hilariously saying he “doesn’t know who the fuck” Rozier is after watching him go for 23 points and 8 assists in another playoff win for the Celtics, the entire sports world took notice.
Boston fans have been taking notice all season long, especially after watching him become the second player in NBA history to rack up a triple-double (17/11/10) in their first career start. They also took notice when he scored 31 points in his second start and knocked down 8-of-12 threes on his way to a career-high 33 with 5 boards and 5 steals in his 6th start.
We took notice back in his high school days at Shaker Heights and during his highlight-filled time at Hargrave Military Academy. Below is a mixtape we put together of Rozier abusing defenders and a recap of his 68-point performance in a double-OT win at the Louisville High School Hoopfest in 2013. The craziest thing about his 68 points is 55 came in the second half because he didn’t get the start.
His final stat line was 68 points (19-37 FG, 8-14 3PT, 22-24 FT), 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. He’s not going to be putting up 60+ in a NBA game because he isn’t going to get to the line 24 times but if he’s given the green light, I can see him putting up 40 in green in the near future.
