Let Them (Toronto Raptors Fans) Eat Pizza

""“The crowd was weirdly invested for a late-game blowout. The Raptors were down by far too many points, but the fans were urging them on with more ferocity than they had all evening long, and on their last possession of the game, no less. Ed Davis called for the ball, eventually getting it. He turned around, fired, scored, drawing a foul in the process. The crowd erupted,” reported the National Post.”

“Why? The Raptors had landed on the 100-point mark, meaning everybody with a ticket was due for a free slice of pizza from Pizza Pizza. Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy was flummoxed. This has long been an issue for the Raptors. Many games, whether in a decisive win or loss, have been tainted by the pizza pandemonium that had nothing to do with the result of the game.”
