Terry Rozier Not Complaining About Reduced Role

Terry Rozier Not Complaining About Reduced Role

Paul George, who finished on 20 points, helped the Thunder build a 14-point lead by half-time, and the Rockets hardly got a look in after that.

The Celtics' starters scored just 13 of the team's 35 points and they trailed Phoenix by 20 points going into the break.

And while Rozier's numbers have dipped to start the season as he has returned to his prior role as Irving's understudy, he said Thursday morning that he isn't upset about his place in Boston's pecking order. That was on full display last season when Irving missed the end of the regular season, and the entire postseason.

Irving led the way with 39 points, including 18 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

There's no doubt that the Celtics love having Irving, one of the best point guards in basketball, in their starting lineup.

There have been reports that seven teams are lurking around if Boston decides to trade Rozier, something Celtics president Danny Ainge denied saying nobody has called him to talk Rozier.

The opening of 11.11 global shopping event was enlivened by performances featuring Mariah Carey, Cirque du Soleil and many more. The 24-hour sale had managed gross sales to the tune of $25 billion past year .

"I told Igor we didn't deserve to win the game, but it was a great individual performance by Kyrie, certainly", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

For the first time this season, the Celtics were the underdog again. G Marcus Smart surpassed 1,000 rebounds and 400 steals for his career.

It's no secret that the Suns are in rebuilding mode, but they a ton of young talent that makes them an interesting watch on League Pass every night. But as soon as Kyrie Irving came back into the picture, it was back to the bench he goes. Sure, they were facing the Suns, a team destined to finish in the upper echelon of next year's draft lottery but after Boston dug itself into a 15-point hole heading into the final frame, it was a daunting task for an offense that was completely out of sync. A game after playing a season-low seven minutes, 2017 first-round draft pick Josh Jackson played only five.

Charles Barkley wants his former Phoenix Suns team to be good. Smart provided the assist.

This is the most by any Suns player through a season's first 10 games since Steve Nash had six through 10 in 2009-10. The Suns visit the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.
