Raptors notch fourth-straight win

TORONTO—While the Raptors ran their record to 4-0, and came close to a franchise record with 36 assists in their highest offensive output of the young season, coach Nick Nurse pointed to his defence after a 127-106 win over the Charlotte Hornets last night.

“I think we created a lot [of offence] out of our defence tonight, which I was probably more happy with,” he remarked.

“Mostly tears of happiness, but I am filled with so many emotions about what I have overcome,” he noted.
