Nick Nurse said that Toronto Raptors' bigs need to make Brook Lopez pay for not coming out of the lane on defense.
"They're loading a lot, and Lopez never leaves the lane. I think I counted 15 illegal defenses on the film, but I ain't gonna count that. Your big has to be able to make 'em pay from the perimeter. You need a spacing big that can hit, or get to the next action because he's in the paint," said Nurse.
Nurse also found inspiration in the Thunder coming back against the Spurs while down 2-0 in the 2012 playoffs.
"I find the solace when OKC got beat by 34 and 24 and went down 2-0 and then won four straight against a great, great, great, great San Antonio team. I don't know. I don't really give a crap about that. I just want our team to come play their ass off [Sunday night] and get one game and it changes the series," Nurse added.
