Rozier Makes First NBA Start Count [VIDEO]
Terry Rozier will never forget his first NBA start. His triple-double helped lead the Boston Celtics to a 103-73 blowout of the New York Knicks.
Fillling in for Kyrie Irving who was out with a quad bruise, Rozier scored 17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. The Elias Sports Bureau says it's only the second time in NBA history that a player making his first career start had a triple-double.
It really was a group effort for the C's. Marcus Morris scored 20 points before leaving the game after injuring himself on a hard fall to the floor. Jayson Tatum scored 15. Al Horford and Jaylen Brown each had 14.
The Celtics broke open a close game in the third quarter, out scoring the Knicks 31-20.
The C's improve to 27-15. The Knicks fall to 23-29.
