Raptors' Casey fined for criticizing refs

NEW YORK (AP) - Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for criticizing officials the previous night after a loss at Atlanta.

In the closing seconds of the Raptors' 93-92 loss to the Hawks, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan grabbed the rebound of a missed shot by teammate Alan Anderson and had his attempt under the basket blocked by the Hawks' Al Horford. There was apparent contact from Horford on DeRozan, but no foul was called.

The Raptors wanted a foul called during the intense exchange, but no whistle meant the Hawks survived for the win. Casey charged onto the court with his arms extended, demanding an explanation and was still upset during his postgame news conference.

``I'm tired of this,'' Casey said. ``I'm tired of losing games because of missed calls at the end of the game. I know the league's going to come down on me for this, but I don't care. Guys have fought their hearts out, played their hearts out and at the end of the game we get cracked, apology, go back to Canada.''

Casey said his initial belief a foul should have been called was supported by his review of the video.

``I've been in this league 18 years and I've never seen as many missed calls at the end of the game to cost us the game,'' Casey said. ``We have good officials. Too good to miss calls and short-change these young men like that. And it's not right.''
