Last year the guy surprised us with nice playoff performance. Can be take it up one more notch?

Playoff Rondo was not only phenomenal, he was also consistent. If we get by the first round, it will be because Rozier played like he did prior to last night more often than how he played last night.

Honestly I think he is limited. Maybe a starter on a bad team .
I would say we have 50% chance to win the first round .
It will take some Stevens magic .

No.  As mentioned, he's too inconsistent.  Another 'irrational confidence' guy that will win you some games and disappear in others.

Outperform what? Breakout like what?

If he averages anything like the 16, 5, and 4 from the previous 26 games, is that considered a breakout? Or are you asking if he will outperform his stellar numbers from the end of the season?

I wouldn't count out that possibility. Rozier was playing bad last season in the regular season then managed to turn it on in the playoffs.

His play will be huge factor in whether we win 1st round. To me that is the last remaining realistic goal for this season.

Rozier is nothing like Rondo, aside from rebounding, perhaps, at times, and the situations are completely different, imo, but could Terry "break out"? Sure. It's certainly possible, but even if he can just maintains the level of play that he has exhibited over the last two months in the playoffs, who needs Kyrie moving forward, ahahahaha? ;D

I'm not going to lie - that would be pretty cool - and I can't believe that I'm about to say this, but I've almost gone Full Rozier, lol. ;) ;D You go, kid! :)

TP......agree....TRoz has already broken out.

Just keep playing like you’ve been playing, Scary Terry.

Rondo at that point in his career made the players around him much better and was scoring pretty well too.

Rozier is a nice player, who will improve, but hardly makes others better and is still inconsistent.

Lol, TP. I still can't believe that I've practically become a fan of his, but way to prove me wrong, Rozier! Woot, woot! Kris Dunn should get the MIP Award, this year, after the season that he's had, at least imo, and there are at least a few other suitable candidates for the honor, but I do hope that Rozier at least gets some votes or finishes in the Top 5 or whatever. He's been borderline outstanding for quite some time, now :)

I think he will help us win a series - seems like the type of guy who wants to thrive in the moment, same with Morris.

However, peak Playoff Rondo (‘09-‘12) was a 16/10/7/2 monster who often played over 40 minutes. If TRoz can get to that lofty level then we could easily make ECF ;)

Why not? Granted, Oladipo has had an excellent, and breakout, season, but Dunn went from averaging 3.8 ppg on .377 fg%, .288 3pt%, and .610 ft% to 13.4 ppg on .429 fg%, .321 3pt%, and .730 ft%, not to mention, well, averaging a hair under 6 apg and exactly 2 spg, while not even playing 30 mpg this year. The award is for, well, the most improved player, so how is anyone more qualified for that honor, this year, than Dunn?

It's not even close man.

Im sorry that you have a Dunn infatuation, but Oladipo is running away with that award.
