    when he pulled box and one out for a couple of possessions and made Kerr put Thompson back in early. Beautiful
    I'd love to see a Nick Nurse "Box & One" jazz album. Just saying. No pressure.

    LET'S GO MIXXXXXXXXXX. ONE. MORE. GAME.

    A coach is only as good as their talent.. and without Kawhi Nurse may not have lasted past the second round. But this series he's just on fire. The timeouts, the execution.. the game plan. The adjustments (on the fly too). Just ridiculous coaching. It's like he was meant to coach a team against the Warriors. He loves the style the Warriors play and knows how to beat that style. I can see why Kerr really wanted Nurse to be part of his staff a few years ago. He's sort of a savant.

    Hope we can lock him for a long time. It would pain me to see him coach another team.

    Nurse has been fantastic in this series, and the last two for the most part. The defence has been incredible. The offence is hit and miss, still too much of the wrong guys initiating throughout the game, but in crunch time he seems to really reel it in to the guys who should be driving the offence.

    And at this point I'm pretty sure he's playing McCaw specifically to troll me, personally.
    On the offence, you can see them feeling things out, though. Run this. Run that. See if this guy is hot. How are they playing this set. Can we get Green going or Gasol. Are they doubling Padcal? Then, in the second half, they settle on a plan of attack. It's not random and it keeps everyone involved.

    I honestly didnt even know McCaw was out there until my wife asked me who the hell he was.

    Can't believe I ever doubted him. Nurse has been stellar.

    I have to eat crow on basically everything at this point re: Nick Nurse.

    The defence has been unreal.

    I actually underrated him in the Orlando series, He has been amazing, out coached Bud and is out coaching Kerr thus far. Love his defensive schemes.

    Agreed. People gave up on him in the regular season and through the Playoffs. I said I'd make my judgement in the Playoffs, and Nurse has done an incredible job overall.

    Tell me how you feel 15 minutes before tip off tomorrow.
    Nah been a raptor supporter since day 1 & NBA fan many years b4 that. This series has been the calmest I've ever been.
    While I obviously want them to win I told my son when they acquired Kawhi, just going to the finals is a championship for me.
    Maybe that why I'm at peace.

    I will say this. I find Nurse infuriating when he doesn't use a time out as the other team sees their run extended from 6 to 12 points. And he doesn't use a time out when the Raptors lead gets chopped by 6, and then they fall behind. Or when he plays end of rotation players who fail to come through. But the Raptors are here in the finals. Several players have been raised from the dead. And the Raptors are only two wins away.

    I still swear at the refs, and say "C'mon NURSE!" at the TV. But overall I am strangely calm. Even a smidge confident that the team will be it's own best self over the series; which is to say, not always dominant because no team is always dominant, but we will see them as good as they can be while remaining mortal.

    I'll take that.
