His knack for showing up in big moments has been tremendously helpful for a team that has lacked a scoring punch in recent years, and he's earned some hefty praise from a number of different National Basketball Association greats (including LeBron James).
Rozier has had an exceptional season, and even though he struggled in Game 7 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. that doesn't take away from what he was able to do this season. Tatum's 3-pointer after a James turnover put Boston back out front 72-71 with 6:04 to play. Boston went six minutes while mustering just one field goal - a Marcus Morris second-chance fadeaway - and the Cavaliers put together a little burst to pull within two with under three minutes to play in the half. If the Cavs are going to win on the road for the first time all series, it'll likely require a monster performance from James.
James kept his team in the lead with his shooting and passing wizardry but faced a formidable adversary in 20-year-old Tatum.
By winning 55 games and getting within a should-have-won of the NBA Finals, a number of players increased their value.
Both Ainge and numerous Celtics players admitted it had to be hard for Irving and Hayward to watch Boston's playoff run without being able to help.
"I want him here all the time", Jackson said about Irving. That may come as soon as next season if James leaves the Eastern Conference.
Ainge scoffed when told how some fans have wondered whether the Celtics should move one of their All-Stars after all the success they enjoyed without them.
Cleveland now await the result of the Western Conference Finals own Game 7 clash between Golden State and Houston.
Jeff Green played 42 minutes filling in for the concussed Kevin Love and added 19 points and eight rebounds while JR Smith had 12 points and Tristan Thompson had 10 points and nine rebounds in 35 minutes down low.
The Celtics have never lost a series they've led 2-0 - making it 36 and 37 straight with this year's first two rounds.
Before picking either side in the 2018 NBA Playoffs, you need to read what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein has to say.
It is not out of the realm of possibility that a player like Irving could have noticed something on the court the Celtics' coaching was unable to.
Al Horford finished with 17 points and Jaylen Brown had 13 but he was just three-of-12 from the three-point line.
But ultimately Boston's very bad 3-point shooting (7-of-39) and 29-percent second-half shooting did the team in.
He countered an earlier pit stop from Hamilton's Mercedes but on lap 29 reported a drop in power in his Red Bull Renault. A slightly longer than normal pit-stop and a mid-race flat-spot delayed him, but he kept it on the road to finish 14th.
They're crossing fingers whenever Kevon Looney , Jordan Bell and/or Nick Young are pressed to play more than 15 minutes. Houston doesn't necessarily need Paul to win a Game 7 at home, but it's pretty tough to imagine them doing it.
Meanwhile, the Karnataka Health Department has confirmed a suspected case of Nipah virus in the coastal city of Mangaluru. The incubation period (interval from infection to the onset of symptoms ) is believed to range between from 4-14 days.
Love was kept out of the second half of Cleveland's 109-99 victory as a precaution after he and Tatum accidentally knocked heads. Boston led 25-20 through one quarter, but were outscored 34-18 in the second quarter to go into the break down 54-43.
Whatever Trump may eventually decide to do, he should not claim to do it in the name of "the long-suffering people of Iran". Previous US officials and the Europeans consider them relative pragmatists who are less dogmatic than the radical theocrats.

What does the new expanded probe involve? "As always, the Inspector General will consult with the appropriate U.S. Comey later testified to Congress that internal reviews found no information to support the president's tweets.
The Cavs didn't miss Love much, after he banged heads with Tatum in the first quarter and was ruled out for the night at halftime. He also commented on his recovery routine and how it changes once the playoffs begin and the rest between games gets shorter.
It had fallen to a record 4.9253 on Wednesday, before closing 2 percent stronger following the central bank's intervention. But doing so will make borrowing more expensive and likely have a negative effect on economic growth.
That is the protocol long followed by college football, preventing anthem protests from being carried out on the field. The owners spent several hours addressing the contentious issue - which has reached all the way to the White House.
