Listen to enough of Dwane Casey’s pre- and post-game scrums and one hears so much about defence you come away thinking it doesn’t actually matter how much a team scores.

But for one of the few times this season and possibly all three seasons he has been in Toronto, Casey was actually putting his concerns about the offence on at least equal footing with the defence.

He even mentioned the offensive woes first — which really could be a first.

“Brooklyn is a very veteran team, they took advantage of some of the mistakes we made offensively and defensively,” Casey said.

“Things that we’re going to make adjustments on. There are quite a few things on offence, quite a few things on defence that we can definitely do a better job on.”

It’s easy to look at the 39.4% shooting in Game 1 and point the finger at shooting woes as the biggest letdown in Game 1.

The problem with that is it’s too simplistic.
