January 20 News The Raptors lost to the Timberwolves 126-128.
After the game, Raptors coach Nick Nurse was interviewed by the media and talked about the game.
“We played well in some ways today, and we put a lot of pressure on the shooters in the first three quarters.” Nurse said in an interview.
“But we let D’Angelo Russell play too easily, and the opponent’s air cuts also caused us a lot of damage. At the same time, we also had a lot of communication errors on the defensive end.”
“We had a couple of great chances at the end and none of them hit. Hitting one of those could make all the difference.”
In this game, Russell played 34 minutes, scored 25 points, 1 rebound, 6 assists, 2 steals and 1 block, and made 8 of 15 shots.
