Thursday

Terry Rozier (Boston Celtics) -- Rozier scored a team-high 19 points and hit a flurry of shots in the game's final minutes to lead the Celtics to a 91-85 win over the Portland Trailblazers in the second round of the Las Vegas Summer League tournament. The biggest shot of the game came when Rozier buried a three with 29 seconds to put the Celts up for good.

"He just played with so much poise, made big shots," said assistant coach Micah Shrewsberry, who is serving as the head coach in the Las Vegas summer league. "We just wanted to put the ball in his hands and give him opportunities. Tim Frazier's a good defender, and (Rozier) took advantage of what they were giving him."

"I knew he was all up on me," Rozier said. "I didn't know how much time was left because it was kind of winding down, the shot clock, so I just wanted to get it up, just wanted to get a high arc, and it dropped."

Terry also made an Internet splash on Thursday for cooking his "special sandwich" for the NBA TV folks.
