The Toronto Raptors are desperate to win Game 2 of their second-round series against the Cleveland Cavaliers after getting stunned at home in Game 1.
Just how desperate are they?
General manager Masai Ujiri sent out a special statement on Thursday ahead of Game 2 begging local businesses to let fans off of work early so they can get to the stadium for the early tip-off.

To be fair, Raptors fans likely won’t have any issue with this. Whenever they do arrive at the Air Canada Centre, Raptors fans will be doing everything in their power to help their team tie up this series. Going to Cleveland down two games to none would be a death knell.
