Valanciunas got… to watch his back when the Raptors play the Kings next season. Amazingly, this can be considered restraint and a sign of maturity on the part of Boogie Cousins. A year ago, he might have thrown a punch. Make no mistake, the FIBA officials are decidedly bad. USA leads 43-35 at the half. The Big Lead
