Last season was one that ended in disappointment for the Raptors. Despite finishing the regular season with 49 wins and the fourth best record in the East, Toronto suffered an embarrassing first round playoff loss to the Wizards where the team was not only swept, but lost the deciding game by 31 points.

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey admitted his team got "spanked" in a recent interview with SiriusXM NBA radio, but also said his guys will look to grow from that experience, and use it as motivation to come back even stronger next season.
