Terry Rozier vs. Eric Bledsoe

Even before Eric Bledsoe called Terry Rozier a nobody following Game 2, the mismatch was apparent between the two starting point guards. Even on the surface, Rozier was getting the better of Bledsoe. He was making shots, helping the offense flow, and creating for others. He actually looked like he wanted to be on the court.

Bledsoe, on the other hand, was a plug in the Milwaukee offense. I lost track of how many missed jumpers and floaters he had. He didn’t come close to making anyone say, “Hey, that Eric Bledsoe guy is good at the sport of basketball.” Just for his sake, I won’t bring up what happened at the end of Game 1 while guarding some guy on the Celtics. What was his name again?

Looking at the stats is even more embarrassing for Bledsoe. In two games, he shot 9-25 (21 points) with 8 assists, 1 steal, and 6 turnovers. Rozier shot 15-32 (46 points) with 11 assists, 2 steals and 0 turnovers. In terms of head to head, Rozier is up big on Bledsoe. The third-year point guard is severely outplaying the 8 year vet.
