Perhaps feeling overshadowed by all the attention Donovan Mitchell has been receiving recently, Terry Rozier decided to do something Monday night to remind Cardinal fans that he’s still a large presence in the NBA as well.
With the Pacers clinging to a 1-point lead in the final seconds of Monday night’s game in Indianapolis, Rozier did this:
Rozier said after the game that he always tells his teammates about his football skills, and the situation Monday night finally gave him an opportunity to show them off. He finished the game with 9 points, 4 rebounds and a pair of steals.
