Terry Rozier soaked it in.

He felt at ease, comfortable in the place he could easily travel around without much need for a GPS. The crisp weather. Lake Erie. Echos of playful dog barking for their beloved Cleveland Browns.

Nothing quite gets a rise out of the Charlotte Hornets guard like being on the court against the Cavaliers. Leading into Friday’s season debut after missing Wednesday’s win over Indiana with a sprained left ankle, Rozier’s numbers in his previous three outings at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse since coming to the Hornets are downright gaudy. He averaged 35.7 points and swished 52% of his 3-pointers, giving him almost superhuman status.

“I’m playing in front of my kids, my family, my city,” Rozier said Friday. “I grew up coming into this arena, so it’s everything. I just go out there and give it everything I’ve got. It just humbles you, being in front of all your people. Being in the spot you grew up just humbles me. And it just lets me know I’m at a great spot and just got to keep going.”

In a rarity, Rozier was a mere mortal throughout the Hornets’ 123-112 victory and his final line indicates two key things.
