NBA fines Raptors coach Nick Nurse $50,000 for throwing mask, directing profanity at refs

Nick Nurse's mask-throwing outburst is going to cost him.

The NBA on Sunday fined the Toronto Raptors head coach $50,000 for throwing his facemask behind the scorer’s table and toward the spectator stands, and for directing a profanity toward game officials at the end of the Raptors’ 115-112 loss to the Utah Jazz on Friday.

In the game, the Jazz went to the foul line 41 times, compared to 14 by the Raptors, who lost for the seventh consecutive time.

"Outplayed them all over the place. Hard one to win. It just didn't seem like they were gonna let us win tonight," Nurse told reporters after the game. "A lot of calls, man. Every possession was free throws."
