Raptors fans were given the task of singing the Canadian national anthem, and they didn't disappoint.
With the Raptors one win away from their first NBA championship in history, the team went a different route when it picked its NBA Finals Game 5 Canadian national anthem performer: the fans.
But the move didn't disappoint and the thousands who packed Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Monday night performed "O Canada"
Grammy-winning R&B singer Monica performed the United States national anthem.
The move to have the crowd sing came after fans broke out into singing O Canada at Oracle Arena after the Raptors' Game 4 win. Fans also sung the anthem in the streets after the Raptors advanced to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.
Entering Monday night's matchup, the Raptors led the series 3–1 but the Warriors earned a 106–105 win in Game 5. The Raptors now lead 3–2 with the series returning to Oracle Arena on Thursday night.
