Raptors' coach Casey finally beats Cavaliers' coach Lue for NBA honor

BY foxsports • February 1, 2016

Some NBA fans were offended when commissioner Adam Silver said he had "no discussion" for Toronto's Dwane Casey to coach the All-Star Game, instead choosing Cleveland's Tyronn Lue.

While Casey will not get the privilege of coaching the All-Star Game in Toronto later this month, he did find out he won a different big honor from the NBA on Monday afternoon. Casey was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month -- this was his third time earning the award, also taking home the hardware in December '13 and November '14.

Toronto was 12-2 (.857) in January, highlighted by a 11-game win streak. Clippers' coach Doc Rivers was named Western Conference Coach of the Month.
