The Raptors have a very early start time for their crucial Game 5 against the Pacers tonight, with tip-off scheduled for 6 p.m., when many fans may still be at work or commuting home.

To make sure everyone gets to the arena/home/bar in time to watch Toronto defend its home court, general manager Masai Ujiri put together a handy note for supporters to give their bosses so they could leave early.

The upside of the early start is fans will get to bed at a reasonable hour, unless, of course, they watch some west coast baseball when they get home.
