The budding rivalry between former Kentucky Wildcat Eric Bledsoe and former Louisville Cardinal Terry Rozier is coming to a head in the Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks series. Tensions have boiled over multiple times throughout the series and now a deciding game 7 is on the way. Bledsoe was a one and one in Cal’s first year in Lexington, while Rozier played two season for Rick Pitino right in the heart of the stripper scandal years. Now they’ve been going back and forth in the NBA Playoffs.

The Bucks had their backs against the wall last night, but the Greak Freak went off and led them to a game 6 victory in front of a home crowd. Bledsoe finished with 9 points and 4 assists in another rough game. He hasn’t had a great playoff series, with Rozier getting the best of him in most games.

Bledsoe is averaging 12 points, 4 assists, 3.5 rebounds, a block, and a steal through the first six games of this series, compared to his season averages of 17.7 points, 5 assists, and 3.8 rebounds. Meanwhile, Terry Rozier has been having a really good series so far, averaging 16.2 points, 6.3 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1.2 steals.
