The Raptors Went Into Beast Mode After Nick Nurse Got Kicked Out Of Yesterday's Game

It was so unexpected!
Nick Nurse Got Kicked Out Of A Game & It Made The Raptors Go Beast Mode

The Raptors responded in the best way possible to Nick Nurse getting ejected from Monday's game.

After being assessed with two technical fouls — one that originally went to Pascal Siakam but was changed at half-time — Nurse was booted from the game, and point guard Fred VanVleet joked that it was just what the team needed.

After Nurse got ejected, the Raptors made a surprise comeback, pulling off a 28-6 run and defeating the Memphis Grizzlies 128-113.

“It was fun. It was fun postgame in the locker room,” Nurse said during the post-game media scrum.

“Guys were enjoying it, and they should. I talk about never getting too high or getting too low, but you’ve got to enjoy the wins. It’s too hard to get them.”

The team did some post-game celebrating last week too when VanVleet shattered a franchise record with 54 points in a single match. VanVleet finished Monday's game strong with 32 points and nine assists. 

The Raptors will face off against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. Hopefully, they can pull off a win just as spectacular with Nick Nurse on the sidelines.
