TORONTO - Road closures in Toronto forced Raptors coach Dwane Casey to ditch his car and ride the subway to the Air Canada Centre for Game 7.

Casey said he was stuck in traffic for 30 to 40 minutes Sunday before deciding to do a U-turn and head for the subway.

"Good old reliable subway," Casey said, laughing. "I don't think anyone expected us to be here today in that they had a marathon and a Game 7 in the same day."

The downtown road closures were due to the Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon.

Fellow TTC riders posted pictures of Casey seated on the subway, dressed in a black Canada Goose bomber jacket and a black Raptors T-shirt. His garment bag hung on the glass partition next to his seat.

"I didn't think anybody recognized who I was but I think the shirt gave it away," Casey said.

Asked if Raptors fans gave him any advice during the ride to the Air Canada Centre, the coach replied: "They just said 'Go get 'em.'"

Casey said it wasn't his first subway ride in Toronto. He most recently travelled via the TTC last summer.

"It's great," Casey said. "I recommend it to everybody. Just not on Game 7."
