Some of the hug recipients changed, but Nurse’s celebration didn’t look that different last night.
Nurse missed his first six coach’s challenges then finally got one right during the Raptors’ win over the Lakers. He responded by hugging everyone – including a Los Angeles fan – around him.
This was a long time coming. Even after a couple early failed challenges, Nurse sounded exasperated.
Michael Grange of Sportsnet:
"I'm 0-for-2 on challenges and I can't believe it. I don't have any idea what I'm doing there. Zero." — Raptors head coach Nick Nurse still easing his way into the whole coach's challenge thing, apparently.

Maybe Clippers coach Doc Rivers, a noted challenge critic, will eventually experience this euphoria.
