Oracle Arena isn’t known to be a venue that harbors many visiting fans, but Wednesday’s game was quite a bit different.
And it was surprising, as Game 3 of the NBA Finals was the first contest Oracle has hosted in roughly two weeks, yet there were a number of Raptors fans in the stands, and they made their presence felt during the game. Three-pointers by Kyle Lowry and Danny Green often elicited some loud cheers from their direction.
It continued after the game as well, when fans sang “O Canada” — loud and proud.
Don’t poke the bear, Raptors fans. It may not end well for you, as you’ve now given the defending champions bulletin-board material.
