Jaylen Brown took a shot at Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse over a key turnover play late in Game 6 on Wednesday night.
With less than a minute to play, Jayson Tatum had the ball for Boston as the Eastern Conference semifinals playoff game was tied at 98 when he drove to the basket, but when he went to pass the ball to the corner, it wasn’t his teammate there, but Raptors head coach Nick Nurse. Nurse was actually on the court and in a stance making it look like he was set up and waiting for a shot and it appeared he did it to bait Tatum into a bad pass.
After the game, Tatum downplayed Nurse’s role in the incident, but Brown was heated about it.
“I think there’s a lot of emotions. It’s very intense. … Grown men should be able to control themselves — especially coaching staffs,” Brown said, via Jay King.
The Raptors couldn’t capitalize, but eventually would win the game in the second OT and force a game 7.
