Izmislio D. Casey immediately threw himself on the field triumphantly – this time he left Toronto with a high head, not as mid-season when General Manager Masai Ujiri showed him the door.
"It was extremely fun to see how the coach came out and started celebrating with the players," R. said. Bullock, the author of the winning throw.
"I do not mean rage at Raptors Club, I understand why this decision is made, but I do not understand why everything happened," Casey recalled, reminding the fiasco last year when Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated in the Eastern Semi-finals 0-4.
The coach himself does not want to talk about this situation, but one of the pistons leaders, Blake Griffin, has chosen to jump into the fire.
The Raptors midfielder with 30 points came behind the Raptors tournament and the club's fans.
"D. Casey has always had to play at the end of the game, draw a combination, it's definitely not news for us. Maybe it was news for Toronto fan or Raptor manager, but not for us," said Mr. Griffin ironically.
The Toronto team had even 19 points on this match, but it completely broke the fourth quarter.
Through this, the hosts scored only 16 points – this is the smallest "reptile" performance this season.
"The coach will never say it, but every time you return to the place where you spend so much time, you have won so many matches and you feel unhappy with the support of the fans, it's difficult. I think that the return to Toronto meant a lot to him. how Mr. Casey managed to get back, "said Mr. Griffin.
Raptors (12/3) continue to stay in place on the first table of the Eastern Chairs tournament after this defeat. Pistons (7/6) are in 6th place.
"This is a nice win for Pistons Club and Casey coach I am confident he is happy but we are not happy I'm a Raptors player so I can not enjoy the success of a competitive coach We had to win this match," said Killa Lovri, spyware player in Raptors, disappointed.
