January 09 News In today’s game, the Raptors beat the Trail Blazers 117-105.
In an interview after the game, Raptors coach Nick Nurse said that when Malachy Flynn initiated a pick-and-roll, the screeners tried hard to attack the basket and said:
"When the paint is so tight inside, you think you should cut outside,
Because there is shooting space from the outside.
In some cases it is right to think so.
But when you feel bad, you can still put pressure on the opponent’s inside defense,
We got some dunks and layups, but even if we didn’t, it didn’t stop us.
In this game, Flynn played 13 minutes and scored 1 of 3 with 2 points and 3 assists.
