Despite being eliminated from the NBA playoffs on Friday night , The Toronto Raptors have lots to be proud of.
It’s the most successful season ever for the franchise amassing 56 wins and a .683 winning percentage to finish 2nd in the NBA East, then going to the East final against the leaders, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Cavs superstar Lebron James lived up to his fame scoring 33 as Cleveland rolled to a 113 to 87 win in front of 20,000 at the Air Canada Centre and several more outside in the now iconic “Jurrasic Park”.
Coach Dwayne Casey was very complimentary of his players, saying with this success things look good going forward for the organization.
“We’re still a relatively young team when you’re talking about competing for a championship.” said Casey. “Now the target is on our backs when people talk about the Toronto Raptors. We were one of four teams left and we should be satisfied.”
Cleveland now advances to the NBA final with Lebron James reaching the sixth final in his career.
The Cavaliers will take on either Golden State or Oklahoma City, next week.
