Celtics guard Terry Rozier unhappy with playing time

Celtics Brad Stevens

In the first half of the game between the Boston Celtics and the Phoenix Suns, Kyrie Irving was the only starter to score in the first half.

Boston would carry its momentum into overtime, escaping with a miraculous, 116-109 win, that wouldn't have been possible without Morris' cold-blooded dagger.

As observed by Chris Forsberg of NBCS Boston, Irving notched 13 points in the first half.

At that point, it was time to pile onto a Celtics team that has been a fairly significant disappointment despite entering the game above.500 at 6-4. He doubled his first half scoring performance with 26 points after the break, including 16 during the final eight and a half minutes of play.

"It's great that we were able to rebound because you're going to have [a poor] half, but it's good to know that we got some of that stuff we looked like at times a year ago in that locker room", said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. Boston shot 18 percent overall in the first quarter and trailed by as much as 18 in the frame. "Miscommunications on defence. A little bit of everything", Booker said. The team went from being down 14 with 3:30 left, to down eight with 90 seconds left, to down six with 40 seconds left.

"Naturally, we all want it now".

A more immediately worrying aspect is that virtual news readers could be yet another step down the route of delivering fake news and propaganda.

For a team struggling to find its identity, Brad Stevens forced his guys to dig deep, stay focused and keep fighting. "And that's even within the games". We're going to be fine, Brad's going to make sure of it, my teammates are going to make sure of it. And it's just sad to see us not giving that. We're going to be OK, no matter what's going on out there.

Celtics will take on the Jazz Friday before closing out their five-game west coast swing in Portland on Sunday.

But the Celtics guard believes he has good news.

National Basketball Association insider Shams Charania reported on Wednesday that several National Basketball Association teams were interested in trading for Rozier.

"The teams that make the most sense are Phoenix and Orlando, but neither team should be trading an asset to have a BETTER record this season". Regardless of the circumstances, Thursday's win should be the sort that gets this team moving in the right direction.
