Toronto fans take Raptor’s NBA title win into the night

The Toronto Raptors delivered Canada its first NBA title with a 114-110 victory over the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors on Thursday (June 13) that set off a country-wide celebration.

With a nation hanging on their every shot, Canada’s only NBA team put the finishing touches to a remarkable 4-2 series upset that denied the Warriors a fourth championship in five years.

Crowds took to the streets in downtown Toronto, the Raptors’ home, well past midnight to celebrate the historic win.

Fans set off fireworks as confetti rained down, creating a carnival-type atmosphere on the streets of Canada’s biggest city. The landmark CN Tower was bathed in gold light as cheering people walked by

The jubilant Raptors fans held a night of celebration on Toronto’s streets not seen in the city since Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays last won a World Series title in 1993.
