Dwane Casey addresses rumors about his future with Raptors

I take it. I accept it.

This was the first time in 49 seasons that a number-one seed had been swept before the conference finals. Casey's 21-30 record in the playoffs has opened the question about whether the Raptors need to find a new coach to take them to a new level.

Lue, who played under Van Gundy in his past year as a player with Orlando, called him an wonderful coach. "I don't feel sorry for myself".

Given his team's dominance over Toronto in the playoffs, Lue may not be helping Casey's job security, however.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor recently reported that league executives anticipate the Raptors will make a coaching change after the playoffs, although Casey's regular-season success could spare him.

The Raptors set a franchise record with 59 regular-season wins.

Boston has drastically outperformed its post-injury expectations thanks in large part to his coaching and assuming the Celtics can knock of the Sixers in one of their next three games, Stevens will advance further in the Playoffs than any coach receiving a vote, other than Mike D'Antoni.

The Raptors had the misfortune of running into a red-hot LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference semifinals and lost four straight games.

"This is probably the toughest, most frustrating, difficult, lowest feeling I've had", DeRozan said Tuesday.

"We've come to a point in this league where we deserved for us to go look at that play. It's kind of the worst feeling". "That was our goal". Boston, which leads 3-1, would advance with a W.

Toronto almost rallied to win Game 3, but James banked in a remarkable tie-breaking basket at the buzzer. "A lot of my success, all of my success, I've gotta credit to Case". "No matter what, I'm always going to have the utmost respect when it comes to coach Casey". He overhauled the offense, had one of the best, most well-used benches in the National Basketball Association and convinced stars DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry to sacrifice for the team as a whole.
