Eric Bledsoe has not been having the best of series for the Milwaukee Bucks this postseason.
In the first-round matchup against the second-seeded Boston Celtics, Bledsoe is averaging a measly 10.5 points and 4 assists a game on 36% from the field, as well as 3 turnovers per contest this postseason. And he has Boston’s Terry Rozier to thank for it, who has been a thorn in Bledsoe’s side all series.
Game 1 was especially bad for Bledsoe, who committed five turnovers and only scored 9 points against Rozier, as well as giving up the would-be game-winning shot to Terry if it wasn’t for Khris Middleton hitting an insane shot after the buzzer to send it to overtime.

After the Game 2 loss in Boston, Bledsoe was asked about how he felt he was playing during the series, and how he matches up against Rozier, and Eric did not have kind words to say about his counterpart.
Someone just asked Eric Bledsoe about Terry Rozier: “Who? I don’t even know who the f$&@ that is.”

Twitter users were quick to remind Bledsoe who Terry Rozier was, in typical fashion.

The series will now head back to Milwaukee, and with the Bucks down two games to zip — not an insurmountable deficit by any means — it may be on Bledsoe’s shoulders to turn the ship around.
