Nick Nurse Rumors
Callie Caplan: Luka Doncic and Nick Nurse are jawing during a break in play here. Last time down, Nurse yelled at officials to call fouls both ways and Luka told him to buzz* off. *He did not use the word buzz.
Josh Lewenberg: Halfway point of the season for the Raptors tonight. Nurse said that this has been the most challenging of his 4 years as an NBA head coach so far, lots of ups and downs. “There’s some stark downs, man, and it’s been a battle to pick everybody up, or pick yourself up.”
Michael Grange: Nurse says that he’s had conversations with GM Bobby Webster about trying to evaluate what the Raptors need coming up to the trade deadline, but it’s been hard to evaluate given way season has gone. Says there’s about six-man or 7-man core they want to focus on going forward.
