That secured Toronto its fifth Atlantic Division title and the top seed in the Eastern Conference throughout the playoffs.

The Raptors' bench became the envy of the league. Their 59-win campaign during this regular season was the organization's highest win total in its 23-year history. "I'm also grateful to the talented and dedicated coaching staff I work with every day in Toronto", said Casey.

The Raptors head coach said, according to NBA.com, that he believes he will still be with the team next season, as no one else has told him differently. The Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers ended the Raptors' series in the Eastern Conference semifinals, halting hopes of a run to the Finals.

Dwane Casey is on the hot seat after the Toronto Raptors were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Has Donald Trump Won the Nobel Peace Prize?
Any consideration of Trump's case would be for the prize awarded in late 2019, as the deadline for 2018 passed on February 1. It bares noting, that when President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 , it infuriated conservatives.

San Jose Sharks get chomped by Las Vegas Golden Knights in overtime
San Jose players have been penalized only 3.4 times per game in total this season, and 2.2 per game over their last five at home. The goal gave Vegas a 3-1 lead late in the second period, but the handsome passing play was all that anyone could talk about.

It isn't the NBA's Coach of the Year award, which is voted on by a panel of sportswriters and revealed in June, although Casey is among the favorites for that honor, too.

Despite Casey's success in the regular season, his future with the team was called into question. And as the old saying goes, it is easier to get rid of one person than the whole team.

"I think there are many ways to get better", said Ujiri, who voice rose at several times as he warmed to the subject at hand. "We will get better here". "That's always been a real goal for us, that's the only things that matters". Just as the Mark Price-Brad Daughter-led Cavs of my youth were the unfortunate pincushion of some guy named Michael Jordan and "The Shot", Cleveland is now taking out their 29-year demons on the little red dinosaurs from another country's largest city. I know what we've accomplished and how the basketball world respects what we're doing.

Speculation has been circulating around Casey's future with the team though, with TSN reporting that the Raptors are leaning towards a coaching change amid the team's constant postseason struggles. "Where our program is, it's not doomsday", Ujiri said.
