Dwane Casey "really happy" with DeMar DeRozan

Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey admits that he was "really happy" to see DeMar DeRozan score 30 points in the team's win over the Brooklyn Nets.

Dwane Casey has said that he is "really happy" that DeMar DeRozan was able to lead the Toronto Raptors to victory over the Brooklyn Nets last night.

The team's leading scorer struggled in his playoff debut at the weekend, but bounced back with 30 points in the 100-95 win over the Nets last night, which leaves the series level at 1-1.

The coach told reporters: "He bounced back, refocused. Making those free throws down the stretch was huge. For him to come through after a tough first game and everyone doubting him, I was really happy with that."

The shooting guard averaged 22.7 points per game during the regular season.
