BRIGHTON - Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier played just 15 minutes in Monday night’s loss to the Orlando Magic, but says despite fluctuating minutes, he still has to come in and work hard every day.

“It’s not the easiest. Me being a competitor, me being who I am, wake up every day and want to be the best I can be. Want to win and everything, it’s tough when I don’t get the minutes that I may want, like last night for example. ... Coach does not have the easiest job. He has the toughest job out of all of us. I can respect that. I control what I control. I still come in every day, bust my butt because I know it may be different on Thursday.”

With only four games under their belt, the frustration is clearly there. “It’s just four games in, but we want to be good right now. ... We’ll get it together.”

Rozier and the Celtics head to Oklahoma City on Thursday to face the Thunder.
