Josh Lewenberg: Nick Nurse on commitment from Canadian NBA players: “We’re gonna always have turnover, I think. The injuries and the contract situations will always play a part in that, but we’ve gotta have some group sticking together. A core group is probably the important thing.”
Michael Grange: Nick Nurse was — I would say — ‘positively non-commital’ about continuing to coach Canada in the future. Said he wants to debrief & evaluate,but also said “you know me; I love coaching and I love coaching this team and I want to see basketball grow”
Marc Stein: International basketball, man … Canada wipes out a 10-point deficit in under a minute to force overtime. Tomas Satoransky wins it for the Czechs anyway with a banked dagger in OT. No Tokyo for host Canada.
