The Raptors never led by more than 10 points on a sloppy night indicative of pre-season basketball. Casey issued an apology to Naismith in the post-game news conference saying:
``I apologize for our display. But I thought our guys battled, the effort was there, we have not had a day off, and we played like it.
``But that's the way it's going to be if you're play for something. You're going to be tired, you have to play through fatigue, if you're going to play for something.''
