Terry Rozier's five treys seal Bucks' fate in Celtics win

When he was at college in Louisville, Rozier was compared to Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe, who had left Kentucky a few years earlier.

To set the stage, in Game 1 of the Celtics first round matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks, C's point guard Rozier called Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe "Drew", either by accident or a little subtle trash talk after the teams Game 1 victory. After Rozier dominated in Game 2, Bledsoe pretended he didn't know who he was. During that game, a recorded message pumping Celtics fans up from Drew Bledsoe, the former Patriots quarterback, played on the scoreboard. The former National Football League signal-caller played for the Pats from 1993 to 2001 before being succeeded under center by a guy named Tom Brady.

Rozier and Bledsoe seemed to bury the hatchet after Boston's Game 7 triumph Saturday, but Rozier couldn't resist making a fashion statement after ending Bledsoe's season. Bledsoe responded by repeatedly suggesting in media sessions with reporters that he didn't know Rozier's name.

They appeared to somewhat bury the hatchet after Game 7.

As Russell Westbrook has demonstrated in the past, one's pre-game attire can dictate the type of performance a player will have.

"Man, that was special", Rozier said. That approach worked for the Carson Wentz-less Philadelphia Eagles, and it can work for the Celtics too.
