Montrealer Chris Boucher lost to the Chicago Bulls 122-113 on Thursday night, setting a new personal high.
To explain this incredible performance, Boucher made a surprising statement at a press conference after the conflict.
“I’m bullied, I’m fed up,” said the Quebec, who is 6 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds.
“I participated in this game and told myself that I can’t be bullied. He added that it really helped me.
Boucher specifically mentioned that his work is close to the basket.
“I am trying to reach a problem to be solved. I am a spoiler. I think it has helped me lately, especially knowing that we often lose the rebounding battle. In every game, I try to get as many rebounds as possible. . It’s my job to defend and get rebounds. If I have a chance to score, I will accept it.”
In recent weeks, due to COVID-19 and injuries, the Raptors have had to cope with limited training. In addition, in Thursday’s game against the Bulls, head coach Nick Nurse had only eight players.
“I am very, very proud of him and happy for him. He is from our starting lineup and now he has a lot of game time. Tonight [jeudi], He took advantage of this,” Boucher’s Raptors driver said.
“He had a great night, that’s for sure. The nurse added that he shot a shot I had never seen before.
As far as he is concerned, Boucher knows that he must seize the opportunity offered to him.
“I want to shine and seize this opportunity. I think we could have won this game. I fired a lot of shots from the city. They [les autres joueurs] Now the way of defense is different, so I am trying to make a different interpretation. “
To be precise, Boucher knew he was still studying in the NBA, and his performance against the Bulls was not the end.
