    ...On positive note, I'm excited to see what Nick Nurse can do with this Canadian team and this might also help with the development of Chris Boucher and Oshae Brissett. Hope to see a great game tonight still vs. Nigeria!
    I was hoping that a lot more Canadian players would get some exposure to Nurse as a coach and maybe a little bonding could happen. I am still hoping that Canadian NBA players would be happy to spend time in Southern Ontario. Getting to appreciate Nurse could have a minor impact and slightly tilt things in the Raptors favour, maybe.

    • Great comment about Chris Boucher over at The Athletic:

      "Both Cory Joseph and Kelly Olynyk mentioned on Monday how playing for the national team can give players a chance to fill a bigger role than they do professionally, which allows for the expansion of a player’s game. Monday’s news about all of the dropouts from Canada’s roster is a blow, but it moves Boucher from being on the bubble to being in the mix for steady minutes in the lead up to the World Cup and the tournament itself."

      • Watching the 2nd half on CBC online.

        Canada up 11

        Olynyk went down and it didn’t look good. He wanted to get up and go but was ushered off the court and into the dressing room. I wouldn’t be too surprised if that’s all she wrote for him. Fuk

        Also, Boucher isn’t even suited up. Grange tweeted about it and said “it could be something worth watching” and his “spidey sense was tingling” ... what the heck is he saying??

          • Looks they’re gonna hang on..

            they were up 17 points? Ha.. nearly blew that one.

            This one doesn’t actually count for anything though is that right, or no?

              • Wiltjer and Heslip can hit 3's though. That can win you a lot of games.

                  • Went to the game ... They started off slow but starter hitting 3's and that got them going .. Dont know why Boucher was in street clothes and God I hope Olynk is okay. It looked innocent

                        • Boucher pulled a Bruno on National Team. A shame really.

                              They were up 17 points but Nurse threw in the towel and let everyone play and that is why it got close but watching it , I was never worried ..

                              • Despite Wednesday's scare, Kelly Olynyk will likely only miss a week with bruising in his knee and is expected to be available for Canada at the World Cup.

                                Most to all Canadian NBA ballers would be saying I am out of here
