A flurry of success to end a disappointing season will not erase the sour taste around the Raptors.

But it’s making the last few days not too bad.

The Raptors crushed the coasting Boston Celtics 114-90 at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday night, bringing the curtain down on a 34-48 regular season that fell far short of expectations.

But in running their season home record to 21-20 — the first winning season at the Air Canada Centre since 2009-10 — Toronto got 24 points from DeMar DeRozan and 19 from Rudy Gay to win its fifth straight.

“(The strong finish) gives guys some momentum going in (to the off-season), feel good about themselves, understanding why we’re telling them to work on certain things,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “It means a lot for the organization, for us, to get a good feel for what we can do when guys are tied in, in a good rhythm.”
