New York, NY (Sports Network) - Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey was fined $25,000 for publicly criticizing the officiating crew in Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.
The Raptors dropped a close 93-92 decision to the Hawks, and Casey was vocal about a no-call on DeMar DeRozan going up in the closing seconds and creating contact from Atlanta center Al Horford in the lane. The whistles stayed silent and the Hawks held on for the win.
"I'm tired of this. I'm tired of losing games because of missed calls at the end of the game. I know the league is going to come down on me but I don't care. These guys have fought their hearts out," Casey said following the club's third straight loss. "It has happened too many times. I've been in this league 18 years and have never seen so many missed calls at the end of the game. We have great officials in this league and they are too good to miss calls and short change us like that. It's not right."
