Throw it down, big man.

Milos Raonic impressed fans and his head coach Drake when he soared to the rim for a two-handed dunk in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game in Toronto on Friday night.

Just a few seconds before halftime, the six-foot-five Raonic sprinted up the court and caught a pass from teammate Tracy McGrady. He then calmly turned and elevated to the rim for a slam to extend Canada's lead to 37-28 over the U.S. 

No one can blame Raonic for raising his arms in celebration. It was a big moment. 

Drake was also very excited as were fans watching the game. 

Here is an example of the joy that was expressed.

Canada cruised to a 74-64 victory.
