TORONTO (AP) For the sixth time in seven playoff appearances, the Raptors are finished after the first round.
In Toronto, with expectations on the rise, early playoff exits aren't going to be good enough anymore.
"That's got to be our goal, to get out of the first round," coach Dwane Casey said Monday as the Raptors cleaned out their lockers. "Next year, getting to the playoffs won't be enough. We've got to get to the next round."
