TORONTO — Even though the playoff lights are getting dimmer for the Raptors, head coach Dwane Casey doesn’t want his team going to sleep.

Short-handed and tired after travelling through the night following Friday’s crushing loss in Los Angeles, coach Dwane Casey told his team at halftime he wouldn’t accept any excuses.

“It was like day and night, and I expected it just because of the schedule,” Casey said of the Raptors’ horrible first ...
