Nick Nurse upset with Warriors interfering on Raptors’ corner threes
Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse complained to the officials during Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night because he thought Golden State’s players were interfering with the Raptors’ corner three-point shot attempts.
During the second quarter of the game, Pascal Siakam made a corner three in front of Golden State’s bench to put Toronto up 43-38 on the Warriors. You could see one of the Warriors’ players jump up off the bench and appear to shout something at Siakam as he shot the ball.

After that happened, Nurse was seen complaining to the officials, and ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy said he thought the Warriors were interfering on corner threes. That seemed to be the case on Siakam’s shot.
Toronto made three-point shooting a big part of their early success in the game, as Kyle Lowry was making his outside shots as well as Siakam.
Nurse should be able to spot it as he knows better about in-game interference than anyone.
