Dwane Casey finally got what he wanted, a couple of hours of uninterrupted gym time to do some teaching and some talking and not worrying about tiring his Raptors out or some wedding setting up in the team hotel.

"Today was very valuable for us from the fact that we were able to get on the court, go through our offensive sets, talk about timing, go through it live … not in the ballroom or not in the shootaround where you're worried about wearing the guys out going too hard too long," the coach said after a lengthy session at the TD Garden here Tuesday afternoon.
