Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey believes that teams playing for pride can be more dangerous than those involved in the playoff race.

Dwane Casey has admitted that teams who are not in the playoff race can still prove dangerous opponents in the NBA.

The Toronto Raptors, who sit fourth in the Eastern Conference, lost 102-100 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who sit three wins behind eighth-placed Atlanta.

The coach told reporters: "We gotta get back to who we are. It's easy to get up for OKC, Miami and Indiana, but the other teams are playing for something too, which is pride. That can be even more dangerous."

The Raptors play the Boston Celtics tonight.
