Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse & # 39; frustration cooked on Sunday after a 95-86 loss to the Denver Nuggets, with the coach turning on his wrath against officials for failing to foul Star Kawhi Leonard had called. Particularly affected was Sister Leonard who had only four free throws in the defeat, despite Leonard's work on the rim.
"Tonight was a very serious case for a man who played great, brought him to the rims and was simply held absolutely, grabbed, hit, beaten, hit and everything and they refused to name any of it," said Nurse to reporters. "It was incredible for me, I can not say that one of the best players in the league scores 100 goals in this game and scores four free throws."
"It's ridiculous," added Sister. "This guy is one of the best players in the league, he does not complain, they just turn their heads and go the other way, she's been playing all year."
Leonard scored 29 points and 14 rebounds for Eastern Raptors, the leading conference of the Eastern Conference, finishing his road trip 2-2.
Leonard made all four of his free-throw attempts on Sunday. He agreed with the assessment of his coach, but stopped it.
"It was very physical, I'm just going to the next game," Leonard said. "I'm proud to just keep going and keep going."
