Fournier: “I knew I wasn’t playing in the playoffs but I helped the team”

Evan Fournier – who averaged 14.1 points on 41.7% shooting and 38.9% clip shooting from behind the arc in 29.5 minutes while starting all 80 regular season games that he recorded in the 2021-22 season – last played on April 9, during a 141-136 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

“In the playoffs, it’s even harder because of the intensity and you want to help and you see the crowd,” Fournier said. “But, you know, I knew it wasn’t going to happen. So try to stay positive with the guys, try to help, talk to some of the players who have no experience.”
