Nick Nurse: Raptors 'Weren't Quite Physical Enough' In Game 2 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat May 18, 2019 5:21 pm

Nick Nurse said that the Toronto Raptors needed to be tougher following their 125-103 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.


“We just weren’t quite physical enough. We weren’t getting our screens set good enough. We weren’t getting them off their screens good enough as well. We’re going to have to be better or they’re just going to look bigger and stronger than we are, and I don’t necessarily think that’s the case. We’ve got to play a little tougher," said Nurse.


Marc Gasol, who shot 1-9 from the field, blamed himself for setting a bad tone for the rest of the game.


Danny Green added that the Raptors needed to play better as a team.


“It’s not a team that we’re going to go beat with each guy trying to put it on their back. We have to trust each other. The only way to beat this team is together. To try to limit them and try to stop the bleeding, stop the runs, not get too rattled, stay poised, continue to run our offence. I think we got out of our offence a little bit," said Green.

“Bench Mob” was originally coined by the Bulls, why couldn’t Milwaukee think of their own nickname :lol:

Raptors simply aren't good enough.

The series is over! The Raptors' confidence is destroyed. They have given it their best shot and have come up short. They may win one in Toronto but that will be all. Bucks win 4-1.
