NBA All-Star Game 2020: Nick Nurse to coach Team Giannis

Raptors head coach Nick Nurse will coach Team Giannis in the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago on Feb. 16.

Nurse’s Raptors (35-14) defeated the Pistons on Friday. The victory meant that Toronto clinched the best record in the Eastern Conference through games played on Sunday, Feb. 2.

Milwaukee head coach Mike Budenholzer is ineligible because he coached in the game last year.

Lakers coach Frank Vogel will head-up Team LeBron.

Nurse is in his second season as Toronto’s head coach, having won the title in his first season leading the Raptors. Nurse was previously a Raptors assistant and also spent six seasons as a head coach in the NBA G League.
