Ahead of Game 5 Monday night in Toronto, the fans attending in Scotiabank Arena showed their patriotism in a big way by singing “O Canada” as one.

The man singing the anthem gave up the spotlight early on, pointing to the crowd instead. The result was a stirring scene we won’t soon forget.

The crowd, which almost exclusively consisted of Raptors fans, is absolutely fired up for Game 5, as we clearly saw even before the game. If their team wins, the NBA Finals will be over with Toronto claiming its first-ever NBA championship.
