Thoughts on Stoglin/Turge Dynamic

The biggest story coming out of yesterday has to be how Stoglin was kept out of the game for the majority of the last 8 minutes. I think at the 8:40 mark we were down 53-49, so it's not like this game was out of reach when Turgeon benched Stoglin. Whether we had a legit chance to win that game last night even with Stoglin in is another question altogether, but he definitely would have made it closer. Stoglin clearly wasn't happy, airing his feelings on Twitter after the game (for anyone the missed it):

@tstoglin12: Loved sittin that bench today. Smfh wow

Now, he went on to delete that tweet and post this a few hours later:

@tstoglin12: Never tweet after a loss. not a bad dude just frustrated. Love terpnation! My fault

It seems like Turgeon and him have worked things out after last night, but I'm torn on whether Turgeon is handling Terrell in the right way. On one hand, Stoglin can't chuck up a 3 every time down and not even attempt to involve his teammates. On the other hand, I think Turgeon has to kind of accept that this is what we are this year, so an off balance 3 from Stoglin might be just as good a shot as we'll get a lot of times down the court. I do think Turgeon gives him a lot of leash (letting him get away with 2-3 bad shots a game), so maybe Stoglin's leash just ran out last night and that's why he had to sit.

What do you guys think? Is MT's treatment of Stoglin all part of his growth and maturity and something that will ultimately pay off next year and beyond? Is Turgeon playing a dangerous game risking the buy in from our best player and the reason why we've even won a handful of games this year? Combination of both?
