Hours before the game, Jack Astor's Grill near Toronto's Yonge and Dundas Square had no tables left. Some guests came four hours in advance, with some tables comprised of complete strangers just to get a seat.

An early lead had Raptors fans cheering. Every TV in the restaurant was tuned to the game, and some chose to stand even though they had seats in order to better celebrate.
