If this was the official end of the Raptors post-season hopes, and don’t try and tell Dwane Casey that, no one can say they didn’t go down swinging.

In an entertaining overtime affair, the Raptors pulled out all the stops even without an ailing Rudy Gay in the lineup and came up an overtime short in a 122-114 loss.

The Raps eventual downfall was their inability to rebound the basketball.

  Yes, new GM made great moves
  No, they will still be a terrible team
  Unsure what to make of it
