With 11 seconds remaining and the ball, the Celtics elected to take the clock all the way down and tried to spring Jaylen Brown off a stagger screen. Instead, Rozier, the third-year guard starting due to Boston’s injuries, drove when Eric Bledsoe hedged high to close the passing lane to Brown (whom the Bucks had switched on a screen to cover anyhow).
When Bledsoe raced to recover, Rozier stepped back and had all sorts of space behind the arc, drilling the would-be game winner with less than one second remaining.
Even though Murray didn’t put up the points on Saturday, the Sooners have been privately optimistic that with him running the show, they won’t skip much of a beat offensively despite graduating a Heisman Trophy winner who headlined the nation’s top offense on the way to leading them to the College Football Playoff.
But even after the injury bug raided the pantry this season, the Celtics are eager to show that the cupboards aren’t exactly bare.

Garcia said in March he had been cleared to return, but the Patriots apparently had a different opinion.
The Patriots are looking for options to replace left tackle Nate Solder (who split for the money with the Giants), and traded for Trent Brown to compete along with rookie Isaiah Wynn and others.
Patricia, based on his comments from Thursday, believes he was falsely accused, and that he did nothing wrong. If that’s the case, Patricia spent several months in 1996 constantly worrying about what would happen if the case went to trial, surely obsessing over everything from whether to testify, whether he’d be able to handle aggressive cross-examination, whether the jury would see his side of the case, whether the judge would be fair to him, and what will happen if he’s convicted of something he didn’t do?
