Terry Rozier in search of continuity | NBA


Sparkling during his first two seasons in North Carolina, to the point of making Kemba Walker forget, the former Louisville college point guard struggling to confirm this year.

First, there was the ankle injury, which occurred in mid-October in training, a few days before the start of the season. Refusing to give up his teammates, he had taken part in the jump ball in the second game against Cleveland, which obviously turned out to be a bad idea since he missed the next 4 games. On his return, Terry was no longer so Scary: over the 13 following meetings, the scorer only exceeded 20 points scored on 4 occasions …

Then there was this cluster of Covid cases that appeared within the Hornets organization at the end of November. A disastrous timing since Rozier, who was part of the « infected », began to find a semblance of rhythm (4 outings at 25 points or more in 5 games). Again absent for 4 new meetings, he returned in mid-December, once again struggling to continue (4 games, 2 below the 10 points mark).

A balance to be found

Lacking benchmarks, the interested party readily admits that he is struggling to find the right balance.

 » To be honest, I feel like I’m too hesitant when I just have to play my game. When I’m on the pitch, smiling and having fun, that’s where I am. at my best. But like I said, my teammates and my coaches never doubted me. So it will come, it will come. I have to stop being hesitant to play like I’m in the playground He told the Charlotte Observer.

There is no question of losing confidence, however

Last night against Utah, for his fifth game since his return from isolation, the former Celtics was transparent for 36 minutes before finding sensations in the fourth quarter, not far from being fatal to the Jazzmen. If he inevitably regrets his delay in ignition, he ensures to be confident despite the turbulence.

 » I never lost confidence. I just started to return my shots. I’m human, I take shots, I’m missing more. I think I’m going through some turbulence right now, but my teammates and staff continue to trust me. And I know I’m going to get out of this. I have already known that « 

Same story with his coach James Borrego, annoyed by the recent performances of his team but not worried about his offensive leader after his successful fourth quarter against Jazz.

 » We just want him to be confident. In the field, he is a weapon for us. We need him to display the mentality he played with tonight. We believe in him, we trust him. He has had ups and downs, the injury, the Covid affair. He had a complicated start to the season. But all will be well for him. He’s a professional, he’s confident. The shots make you end up coming in, he knows that we believe in him «
