It was after Game 1 that Celtics coach Brad Stevens was asked if Jonas Jerebko had a role in the club’s third-round series against the Cavaliers. It’s apparently been found, too, as 6-foot-10 Swede has seemingly become the club’s enforcer.
One game after Jerebko told Kevin Love to stop flopping in Game 3, Jerebko seemingly came to the defense of Celtics guard Terry Rozier tonight when the second-year pro was muscled down to the court by Cavaliers star LeBron James in the second quarter, and delivered a shove of sorts to the all-world James.

After a brief verbal exchange following the shove from Jerebko, James returned the favor with a dunk and a shove to Jerebko.
It would be one of James’ only plays in the second quarter, as he sat for most of the quarter, with four fouls to his name.
