What do you say about Terry Rozier?  He was good in high school, but so was evrybody.

He was good in college, but so was everybody.

Rookie impact?  Not so much.  He played in 39 games when he wasn't in the G-League playing for the Maine Red Claws.  In the NBA he played 8 minutes per game averaging 1.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.9 assists.

In his second season he played in 74 games, averaging 17 minutes, and put up 5.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists.  Okay.

Year 3, 2017-18.  Fourth guard on the depth chart.  80 games played, 26 minutes per game, 11.3 points, 4.7 rebound and 2.9 assists.  That's slow and steady improvement, but it did not prepare us for this:

Round 1

Round 2

2018 Playoffs:  17.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists.  We did not see this coming.  Terry Rozier didn't turn into Scary Terry.  He turned into the kid in the 2PAC song:
