Celtics players genuinely surprised Brandon Jennings messed with Terry Rozier

Celtics players genuinely surprised Brandon Jennings messed with Terry Rozier

The fact Wizards backup guard Brandon Jennings instigated conflict with an opponent is surprising to no one. Jennings has a reputation for doing that and will gladly admit it. The person he picked on in Game 3, however, was surprising, at least to the Celtics.

Jennings got into it with Celtics reserve Terry Rozier, a guy he has a history with. The two traded off fouling each other, then earned double technicals and ejections from Game 3.

Rozier's teammates simply aren't used to seeing people play around with him.

"A lot of people don't want to mess with Terry. He's really with that. I will tell you that now," guard Isaiah Thomas said.

"He's a guy who can step up to his own battles," forward Jae Crowder said.

Translation: Rozier is, as the saying goes, 'bout that life and not someone others usually want to mess with.' Jennings, though, overlooked all of that and decided to engage. Even Rozier will admit that Jennings' tactics worked.

So will Thomas and Crowder.

"That's what Jennings is doing. I guess he got the best of him last game, but Jennings has been doing that all year," Thomas, who considers Jennings a good friend, said. "He's been that guy that just is real physical when he comes into a game. He tries to change the outcome of a game. That's his job. I guess he did a good job of it last game."

"Terry has to do a better job of staying within the course of the game and stay within himself and not let opponents get him rattled like that," Crowder added.

Rozier is tough and scrappy and doesn't back down from altercations. But it sounds like he met his match with Jennings.

Drake calls Kelly Oubre a 'bum', Oubre doesn't take the bait


Drake calls Kelly Oubre a 'bum', Oubre doesn't take the bait

One thing rapper Drake has been known for is being a very vocal sports fan, that always seems to make himself the center of attention.

He also seems to be a fan of just about any team that happens to be winning at the moment. 

He's been seen in everything from Kentucky gear at a basketball game, to Alabama and Texas A&M football apparel (seriously, just Google "Drake bandwagon fan" and take a look).

One team he's always seemed to stay loyal to though is his hometown Raptors. Especially when it comes to yelling at anyone he can on the other team.

First, it was John Wall having a back-and-forth with Drake on the court.

Now, it seems to be Kelly Oubre that gets to help Drake suck up more attention on social media. 

After C.J. Miles hit a three-pointer during the fourth quarter of Washington’s 130-119 loss Tuesday night, the cameras caught him doing what he just can't help himself from doing.

Oubre though, doesn't take it personally, even when it was pointed out to him postgame.

Maybe it's because Oubre wants to start his own fashion line, and hopes to have Drake help promote it.

Maybe it's because Oubre doesn't want to ever show up on a Drake diss track (even though he apparently deleted this tweet from a long time ago right after the game).

Or Maybe Oubre is just being the bigger man.

Either way, it's safe to say this trend will continue for Drake and whoever his next Wizards target is on the court.

Given Drake's history though, if the Wizards come back and win the series, will we see him in a Wall or Oubre jersey?

Considering all the bandwagons he's jumped on, it would surprise very few if it happened.
