Raptors’ Coach Casey: ‘We don’t get a lot of respect’


At the least, the Raptors will need to get better at holding on to big leads after blowing a 25-point advantage against the Milwaukee Bucks before winning 92-89 on Thursday night. Toronto took a physical, tiring first-round series in six games.

“We’re just a team up north. We don’t get a lot of respect, and I like that,” coach Dwane Casey said. “As a matter of fact, I think we’re better with our backs against the wall.”
