The first part was easy. The Raptors’ coaching staff met together in the middle of the morning and then talked with players after about their game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Since tip-off did not take place until 8:30 p.m. ET, Nurse still had some time.© Ashley Landis, Pool photo via USA TODAY Sports Nick Nurse, Fred VanVleet and the defending-champion Raptors resumed their season Saturday night with a win over the Lakers.
"I had a workout," Nurse said. "That ate up a little bit of time."
From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.
Not enough, though. So Nurse went for a walk and then watched a handful of NBA games on television.
"That’s nice these games are on all day," Nurse said. "We have a basketball tournament all day long in this bubble and can watch everybody get back at it."

ON FIRE: Warren drops 53 points to lead Pacers to key win over Sixers
NO PROBLEM: Embiid downplays heated exchange with teammate
Normally, NBA teams do not have as much free time amid their hectic travel schedule. This time, 22 teams are on the same Disney campus at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
"The biggest thing is seeing your competitors constantly," Nurse said. "You usually never see them. I know this will sound weird, but you will have some really good friends on the other team that you coached or played with before or coached in the minor leagues with. You’ll fly into their city and play them, but you barely get to wave at them because, boom, you’re off to the next city."Sights and sounds inside the bubble
The Philadelphia 76ers came to Disney World with high hopes, but things got off to a rocky start in a 127-121 loss to the Indiana Pacers. The Sixers had no answers for T.J. Warren, who poured in a career-high 53 points. There were fireworks on the sideline as well, with TV cameras catching a heated exchange between Sixers teammates Joel Embiid and Shake Milton between the first and second quarters. Milton had to be held back by another teammate.

The Sixers downplayed the dust-up after the game. Embiid said "it's nothing." Coach Brett Brown is hoping something positive comes of the exchange. "I actually think stuff like that is probably more healthy than anything," he said. "Those two will move on quickly."
Fans will surely be on the lookout for any more signs of eroding chemistry in the Sixers' next game Monday against the San Antonio Spurs.
The Oklahoma City Thunder opened the restart with a convincing 110-94 win over the Utah Jazz and got an emotional boost from a familiar but forgotten face.
Andre Roberson checked into the game at the 5:12 mark of the second quarter for his first official NBA appearance in 917 days. Roberson hadn't played in a regular season game since suffering a devastating knee injury on Jan. 27, 2018. He played five minutes Saturday and made his presence felt on the defensive end with a big block on Utah's Jordan Clarkson.

After three days of games inside the bubble, all 22 teams have played at least once, and the playoff chase is starting to take shape. The New Orleans Pelicans' chances of grabbing the No. 8 seed in the West took a major hit with a blowout loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. Now 0-2 in seeding games and four games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for eighth, the Pelicans will need to turn things around quickly to have a shot at forcing a play-in scenario.
The race for West seeding got tighter, with seeds 3-6 now separated by just 1½ games. With their loss, the Los Angeles Lakers' magic number for clinching the top seed remains at one. In the East, the Pacers' win over the Sixers carries huge ramifications as Indiana clinched the all-important head-to-head tiebreaker against Philadelphia.Essential reading

Barca may still be reeling a bit from their recent La Liga loss to Real Madrid, but they also just beat Napoli in a hard-fought 3-1 victory last week, so the team seems to be back on track. Led by superstar Lionel Messi, whose dynamic goal made it 2-0, Barcelona will have its hands full here. Defending Messi will be one of the primary concerns for this Bayern squad, but they think they’re up to the task.
Bayern’s Alphonso Davies will be playing against his idol and favorite player in Messi. Davies will be tasked with defending Messi all game, and for him, it’s a lifetime dream come true.
“My mum called me yesterday and then my dad hopped on the phone, and he was like: ‘So you’re playing against your favorite player, I see.’ And I went: ‘Yeah.’ And then we both started laughing on the phone. And honestly, we couldn’t even believe it, because he knows that I looked up to Messi when I was younger, and now playing against him, it’s really nice,” the Bayern star said.
Davies says that despite his admiration for Messi, neither his game nor his mindset will change. “Growing up, I used to watch him all the time and now I’m defending against him — it’s going to be a whole different ball game. But for me, it’s just playing my game, changing nothing on my side and just hopefully doing my best against him. We know that he’s a great player – we’re not going to take that away from him – so the best you can do is try, I guess. It’s going to be an incredible game. All I can say is that I am excited to play the game and I’m sure everyone’s excited to watch as well.”
Bayern handed Chelsea a 4-1 loss in their last match, dominating from start to finish with a well-rounded attack. They will be led by Robert Lewandowski, who has 53 goals in 44 appearances this season, including 13 in Champions League play.
Injury-wise, Benjamin Pavard (foot) will be out for Bayern, and Martin Braithwaite (ineligible) will miss for Barcelona, while Samuel Umtiti is doubtful.
Here’s a look at the potential starting lineups for both teams:
Bayern: Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Jérôme Boateng, David Alaba, Alphonso Davies, Thiago, Leon Goretzka, Kingsley Coman, Thomas Müller, Serge Gnabry, Robert Lewandowski
Barcelona: Marc-André Ter Stegen, Nélson Semedo, Gerard Piqué, Clément Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Frenkie De Jong, Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez, Sergei Roberto.
Barca has won just two of its last 10 games against Bayern, losing six of those matches.
