Raptors coach Nurse, Hawks guard Bazemore fined by NBA
NEW YORK (AP) — Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse and Atlanta Hawks guard Kent Bazemore were fined by the NBA on Tuesday.
Nurse was fined $15,000 for criticizing the referees after a 95-86 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. Nurse was upset about a lack of fouls called against players guarding Kawhi Leonard, who had only four free-throw attempts.
Nurse said the fouls against Leonard have “been going on all year. I do not understand why they are letting everybody play one of the best players in the league so physically.”
Bazemore was fined $10,000 for throwing the ball into the stands. He received a technical foul with 9:09 left in the Hawks’ 144-127 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.
