Toronto Raptors 92, LA Lakers 94

I got a couple tickets in our company's box for today's basketball game at the ACC (thanks, Stacey!) ... the Toronto Raptors vs the LA Lakers. Alas, the Raptors aren't doing so well, though the Lakers are doing better.

The Raptor was signing autographs on the main floor before the game.

Mats Sundin, a former Toronto Maple Leaf (they play hockey at the ACC too), had his number honoured last night.

The Raptors and the Lakers are getting warmed up.

The Raptors' dancers get things started.

And the game begins!

We were in the box ... our food (beef sliders, chicken fingers, chicken wings, rings, veggies, pizza, spring rolls, etc.) and drinks were provided. Natasha did an excellent job taking care of us.

This is looking towards the game from the back of the box.

Here's Gord.

At halftime, the Lakers were ahead. Oh oh!

The Raptors tied it in the fourth quarter. Whoohoo!

The Raptors are leading ... yippee!

There was lots of action in the last quarter.

Alas, the Lakers came back in the last seconds of the game and won. Boo!

Here are me and Gord after the game (it didn't take long for the ACC to empty out).

It was a fun exciting game! Too bad we lost.

The Raptor can sign autographs? I had no idea.
