Rozier's second season with the Hornets proved to be a good one, as he started in every game he appeared in, and he set a few new career-high averages of points per game, assists per game, and steals per game. The guard averaged 20.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.3 steals in the 69 games he appeared in. Rozier shot an exceptional 45.0 percent from the field, 38.9 percent from behind the three-point arc and 81.7 percent from the free-throw line. The former Louisville star recorded three games with 40 or more points, nine games with 30 or more points and 36 games with 20 or more points. One of Rozier's most impressive games was where he dropped a career-high 43 points against the Pelicans on May 9, as he made 16-of-26 from the field and 7-of-11 from beyond the three-point line. The 27-year-old recorded five double-doubles and set season-highs of 11 assists (April 25) and 10 rebounds (March 28) on nights where he achieved double-doubles. Rozier concluded the regular season on a good note, almost managing a triple-double, as he scored 22 points to go along with nine rebounds, nine assists and three steals. In his first play-in game against the Pacers on May 18, the guard notched 16 points, eight rebounds, six assists, one steal and a block. Defensively, Rozier matched a season-high four steals to go along with one block in a matchup against the Cavaliers on April 14. All in all, Rozier easily had one of his best seasons, and he was the Hornets' leading scorer for the 2020-21 season.2019
Rozier appeared in 63 games for the Hornets during the 2019-20 season. He averaged per-game career highs in points (18.0), assists (4.1) and threes (2.7) across 34.3 minutes. He also averaged 4.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.2 blocks. Rozier shot a career-high 42.3 percent from the field, a career-high 40.7 percent from three and a career-high 87.4 percent from the charity stripe. On Mar. 9 against the Hawks, the former-Celtic established a new career-high with 40 points. He shot 15-of-26 from the field, 8-of-13 from three and 2-of-3 from the free-throw line, while also posting four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 44 minutes. Rozier's other single-game season highs were 10 rebounds, 10 assists, eight threes, four steals and two blocks. Rozier also had two double-doubles.

The Louisville product had five games with at least three steals and eight games with at least one block.2018
Terry Rozier has proven to be a source of instant offense whenever given extended minutes. The 2018-19 season was no different. Rozier averaged 9.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists despite playing just 22.7 minutes per contest for a Boston roster that was much healthier than during the 2017-18 season. Celtic injuries in 2017-18 allowed Rozier to blossom and play 25.9 minutes per contest, so the 2018-19 drop in PT might have been frustrating for the young guard. "Scary Terry" topped the 20-point mark on five separate occasions, including 26 points in January against the Cavaliers and again versus the Clippers in March. Rozier continued to be a solid contributor from behind the arc, hitting 1.5 three point attempts per game. Rozier's scoring was helpful, but his rebounding from the point guard position really stood out. Rozier pocketed eight boards in two of Boston's first six contests and exploded for a season-high 11 boards against Atlanta on Jan. 19. Rozier's Celtics ended the season with a 43-39 record and swept Indiana in the first round of the playoffs. The Celtics then lost in to the Bucks in the second round of the playoffs.2017
Rozier appeared in 80 games for the Celtics during 2017-2018. Rozier would go on to start 16 times. He established career-highs across the board with 11.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per tilt. Scary Terry scored a career-high 33 points at Sacramento on Mar. 25, canning eight three-pointers in the process. Rozier attempted five treys per contest, hitting a career-best 38.1 percent from downtown. With Kyrie Irving sidelined for the playoffs, Rozier upped his game in impressive fashion. He recorded averages of 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists during the postseason. Rozier played nearly 10 more minutes per game in the playoffs as he did during the regular season. He'd count at least 20 points in seven playoff games, as the Celtics advanced all the way to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals before succumbing to LeBron James and the Cavaliers. And to cap off a productive campaign, Rozier would end up tied for tenth in the voting for both the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year and Most Improved Player.2016
In his second NBA season, Rozier appeared in 74 games off the bench for the Celtics, averaging 14.1 minutes per contest. He posted 5.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.6 steals per game while shooting a then-career-best 36.7 percent from the field. Rozier scored in double-figures 16 times. He recorded a season-high 16 points against the Magic on Dec. 7, also adding five boards and two assists. In a loss to Portland on Jan. 21, Rozier put up 15 points, three rebounds and three assists. He grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds to go with 14 points and two assists against the 76ers on March 19. Versus Detroit on Nov. 30, Rozier handed out a season-high six assists. He swiped three steals against the Wizards on Jan. 24 and matched that total in a win over the Knicks on April 2. In the postseason, Rozier appeared in 17 of the Celtics' 18 games as they advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. In Game 4 of the second-round series against Washington, Rozier established a new playoff-career-high with 16 points. In Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Rozier finished with 10 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.2015
