Terry Rozier has tunnel vision, and he’s not going to let the words from an opponent get to his head.
Rozier has been a star for the Boston Celtics in the first two games of their first-round NBA playoff series with the Milwaukee Bucks. The third-year guard has dropped 23 points in each of Boston’s wins, but apparently that’s not enough to warrant the attention of Eric Bledsoe.
As you’ve certainly heard by now, Bledsoe preposterously claimed he didn’t know who Rozier was after the Celtics’ Game 2 win on Tuesday night. While the Bucks guard might just be trying to play mind games, Rozier isn’t taking the bait.
Or maybe Bledsoe just has sour grapes. He’s been outclassed by his cross-court rival in both games of the series, and Rozier probably didn’t get in Bledsoe’s good graces after Game 1 when he flubbed his name.
Either way, Game 3 in Milwaukee on Friday should be a contentious matchup.
