Toronto Raptors' head coach Nick Nurse has been fined $15,000 for his comments following Sunday's loss to the Denver Nuggets, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Nurse was not happy with the way that Leonard was officiated on Sunday, or this whole season for that matter.

The Raptors' star forward was appreciative of the support he got from his head coach stating, "It's great. He can see the game. We're playing it, we feel a certain way, we always think we're right on the floor. But when you've got your coach seeing the same thing you're feeling, it's great."

He also agreed with his coach's post-game statements, "It's been like that all year, but in this era and how the game is and the rules are today, yes, I agree with him. It's been very physical. But I just go with the next play... I pride myself on just keep moving and keep going."

The Raptors return to action on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET when they host the Indiana Pacers. The game will be broadcasted on TSN.
