Brad Stevens, due to the quality play of Kris Humphries, brought Sullinger off the bench against the Clippers. For the moment, that appears to be an ongoing plan.

Blake Griffin's MONSTER DUNK over Kris Humphries last night was so nasty ... even Blake's brother admits, you can't help but feel terrible for Kris.

"I just feel sorry for the guy," Taylor says ... noting that Blake's dunk was definitely one of the Top 3 slams of the year. TMZ.com

As a veteran in the last year of his contract on a rebuilding team, Humphries is a highly tradable commodity. But as long as he’s here, Stevens will enjoy his presence. “You go home and people ask you about guys, and what I told them about Kris is that he’s as professional as you can be,” Stevens said. “He handles not playing, and he’s a positive teammate. We’ve got a lot of those guys, but he’s certainly a great example.” Boston Herald

Players like Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks and Kris Humphries have, however, had to figure out a way to deal with a situation that is less than ideal with all three looking at free agency at the end of the year. For the most part, they have been professional about it, even when it’s gnawed at them inside. "Your job title doesn’t say you’re going to play," Bogans said before Friday night’s game against the Cavaliers. "I know what it takes to be in this league, to stick around. I’m just trying to help MarShon out. It’s really tough on him being younger. I’m helping him stay ready, so when he gets called he’s making the most of his opportunity." MetroWest Daily News

"I just try to play as hard as I can when I’m out there," Humphries said. "Not focus on how much I’m playing, if I’m getting plays, getting the ball — those kinds of things. It’s simpler when you break it down in your mind as: ‘This is your job. Go do it. Play hard.’ MetroWest Daily News

Humphries wants to play somewhere, even if it means leaving Boston. He's not quite ready to demand a trade, but it's clear that the lack of playing time and erratic minutes he has played is weighing on him. The 6-foot-9 veteran did not play (coaches decision) in Boston's 109-96 loss to Portland on Friday, his fifth DNP-CD this season. "I'm just waiting for a break or an opportunity to get in there more consistently," Humphries told CSNNE.com. "It would have been great to have played better (Wednesday) night and us win. That would help. But as a guy playing inconsistent minutes, it's not going to happen every night for you. You have to try and make it happen and do whatever you can to help your team win." CSNNE.com
