Nick Nurse doesn't care about Raptors' 0-2 deficit

Nick Nurse doesn't care about Raptors' 0-2 deficit The Toronto Raptors are in a very tough spot, but coach Nick Nurse knows better than to dwell on it. Nurse made it quite clear that he didn’t care about the Raptors’ 2-0 deficit against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Final, nor is he concerned about the statistics that surround him. When told that 94 percent of teams with 2-0 leads go on to win the series, Nurse more or less brushed it off. “That can’t be right,” Nurse joked, via Tim Bontemps of ESPN. “That can’t be right.

The Toronto Raptors are battling some serious pain to play their way through the Eastern Conference Finals.

On Wednesday, coach Nick Nurse admitted that point guard Kyle Lowry was battling pain in his left hand as a result of a thumb injury suffered in the conference semifinals against Philadelphia.

Lowry was in some visible pain during Game 3. However, he’s still been effective against Milwaukee, especially after the series shifted to Toronto. He scored 25 points in a big Game 4 victory, so it’s clear he can still do the job despite his injury.
