Listen: Nick Nurse, NBA And Raptors discussed on Dickerson & Hood
"Bledsoe? Couldn't hit the side of a barn last night with only eight point you when you're when you're in this situation winter, go home. Your best player has to he wants to be the one that's going to win the game for you. Lose the game for you. Your best player has to play like. Kawhi Leonard did for the last night. I mean, twenty seven points, seventeen rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks. That's amazing. Here's what head coach Nick nurse had to say about co performance after the game. He's just so good. And again, I'm seeing a level of competitive greatness out of him. It's just his willingness to win him willing grabbing those rebounds and willing those shots in almost it seems like and going down and locking up somebody and taking the ball from them just it's what it is. It's great competitive desire. Now, I have no ties to the city of Toronto. Mike and for a long time, I doubted the raptors like most people around the NBA did when year after year. They were the biggest regular season tees and they fell flat in the playoffs. But one thing you can say raptors fans have brought it for years. That's a very energized in rabid fan base. So it was kind of cool to see just, you know. The explosion in the streets last night, not like little explosive. I mean, just people just having a great time, and party, and I mean, the tens of thousands of people on the street in downtown Toronto outside the arena that was pretty cool. So for a fan base that has kind of been a tortured fan base for many years. But as always come out and showing their support for the home team. I thought the way they party last night was was pretty cool. I like watching it. They deserved a party. I mean, I spent ten years covering the NBA so I spent plenty of time"
