Terry Rozier says he was already motivated before Eric Bledsoe comments
Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier isn’t getting riled up over the disrespectful comments of one of his counterparts.
Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe pretended to not know who Rozier was after struggling against him in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, but Rozier didn’t devote much thought to that, saying he was already fired up for the playoffs before Bledsoe’s comments.
Terry Rozier on motivation and Eric Bledsoe:
"He can’t motivate me. He don’t motivate me at all. Even the negative stuff when you turn on ESPN, they wasn’t motivating me before the playoffs started. I already motivated myself so they were too late."

The stats are on Rozier’s side here. The Celtics guard has scored 23 and 22 in the first two games of the series, with both performances coming before Bledsoe’s random act of disrespect. This is frustration on the part of the Bucks guard, and it doesn’t seem to serve much of a purpose.
