Where are all the Stan haters now? Can't hear you? 🙂

Had to go on LP and watch the last 4 minutes, i gave up after it looked over, and couldn't believe the final score later in the night.


Yeah, he's still horrible.

Even the sun shines on a dog's arse some days.

Good job Stan, see you next season. He probably won't again.

zero chance of contributing in the playoffs. Boucher, probably greater than zero percent chance. No?

Frankly, I’d rather see Boucher get the backup PF minutes than Rondae.

Agreed. I don't mind RHJ, but he's tough to watch on offense.

BUT HE’S 27!

i gotta say i thought maybe his shooting had benefitted from some streakiness and that it was maybe not going to be all that reliable, but it looks like he has kept up the work on it, and we know the confidence is there.

Also - RHJ had one of his worst games against his old team. He could end up trying to do too much. And Chris looks like a decent matchup for a time against Jarrett Allen.

you think boucher will contribute in the playoffs?? He may get some court time if there's a blowout situation, or some desperate times (like we had in the boston game), but I'd be very surprised if he cracks the rotation. Perhaps in the nets series, if things go as planned and we control the series, it would be nice to give the deep bench a bit of run to build some experience for next year, but that's about it.

I definitely disagree about RHJ, he's far more likely to get some time, especially against boston or the bucks. He would be an emergency option too, if our bigs are in foul trouble or injured, but he'll be ahead of CB.In my opinion, Boucher doesn't have the strength to play playoff basketball, he was pushed around by zach collins who's not the strongest guy out there. It's one thing to play against backups in a meaningless game, and another to fight against starters in the very physical context of a playoff game. That's why I think RHJ has more of a chance to play, he can be a specialty defender and hold his ground against anybody on defense. He's useless on offense, so he can't really play more than short stretches. He'd be the matt thomas of our defense. 

Personally, I'd be very surprised if anybody outside the top 7 get any PT beyond the nets series, unless there are injuries. The dropoff from 7th to 8th and beyond is substantial, and nurse didn't even trust guys like powell and fred last season, who were far ahead of where TD2, RHJ and Boucher are this year.

The only one who I suspect we'll be seeing more frequently is thomas, who may be able to unlock certain defenses. If there's a reasonable matchup for him on defense, or we really struggle with shooting and spacing, he'll be called in first. Also in some specialty situations, like end of quarter final possesion, or offense/defense stuff in closing minutes.

I’m just saying - not zero chance man. Not zero.
