So DeMar DeRozan had the flu in Game 7

That would explain stuff.

That would explain his lack of aggressiveness all game. But why Casey played a flu-ridden DeRozan for 45 minutes is the larger question. He hadn’t exceeded 40 minutes for the series up until this point, but logged 45, while Landry Fields, who we desperately needed to guard Joe Johnson played a whopping 14 seconds.
