"I'm trying to avoid the boos, just trying to play a perfect game so I don't have to hear it and help my team win. It got to the point now when I came to sub in, the boos are coming. They won't even give me a chance. So I don't know, I'm going to continue to try to work. Hopefully, something will happen for me. I don't know."
