Terry Rozier is on a scoring streak, and it all began on January 31, 2018 on his very first start as a Celtic. Terry started the game in place of the injured Kyrie Irving and put up his first career triple-double in the 103-73 win over the New York Knicks. He played 33 minutes and notched 17 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two blocks.
Prior to January 31, T-Ro was averaging minutes in the low-to-mid 20's. The start and the production seemed to have a positive effect on his confidence, his play and his minutes. Since that date he is averaging minutes in the high-20's for the last 16 games, and he has also managed to score double-digit points in all of those games, averaging 15.3 PPG in addition to 4.2 RPG and 3.3 APG.

Celtics bench has been pretty great and big part of that is @T_Rozzay3 playing some terrific basketball. Quick as hell, confidence up to the roof. It's been a pleasure to watch him play lately: pic.twitter.com/2rW0xwrRwA
It is obvious in the video/tweet above how much T-Ro has progressed this season. He has been terrific in the last 16 games. With the sad news that Daniel Theis will miss the rest of the season with a torn meniscus, the Celtics will need all of the bench production they can get. Terry seems ready to take on the challenge.
