Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t pleased when the Steelers picked quarterback Mason Rudolph in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft. But, Rudolph thinks the two will develop a good relationship.
Roethlisberger said in an interview in late April that he was surprised Pittsburgh selected Rudolph on day two of the draft because he thought the team could “get some really good football players” that could “help [the Steelers] now.” He had previously said he plans to play three to five more years.
Lawrence could still get such a deal this offseason, but said Wednesday that he’s not losing sleep about the prospect of going into the 2018 season without anything in place for the years to come.
“It really doesn’t matter,” Lawrence said, via the Dallas Morning News. “If I do my thing, I put up my stats and I help my team win, they ain’t got no choice but to sign me. That’s how I feel.”
To return to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year, the Cavs have to win four of five and re-write Boston’s illustrious history. The Celtics are 37-0 when they win the first two games in a series.
The Cavs came in wanting to play faster and be more physical with the younger Celtics, who were the aggressors in Games 1 and 2.
The toughest team sets the rules, Rozier said. “They came out aggressive from the jump and never looked back. We’ve got to play aggressive from the rip. Tonight, we were all over the place, playing too fast and doing things we didn’t want to do.”
The Cavs needed more from point guard George Hill after two poor performances (8 points, 1 assist) in Boston. Hill responded with a driving layup to start the game and drained three 3-pointers in the first quarter as Cleveland wasted no time taking control.
