Raptors Coach Stuck in Traffic, Forced to Take Subway to Game 7

Sunday May 4th, 2014

I imagine Raptors head coach Dwane Casey had plenty of things on his mind when he woke up Sunday morning. Unfortunately, traffic plans weren't one of them.

As Casey drove to the Air Canada Centre for Game 7 against the Brooklyn Nets, the veteran coach quickly ran into trouble: a marathon causing major gridlock in downtown Toronto.

Knowing he couldn't continue to sit in traffic, Casey made a U-turn, parked and hopped on the subway so he could make it to the game on time.

Casey wasn't the only person having trouble finding a route through the marathon either.
