For the first time in franchise history, the Toronto Raptors are going to the NBA Finals.

And it’s a big hecken’ deal.

The Raptors came back from being down as many as 15 points in the third quarter to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 100-94 in Game 6 on Saturday night, winning the series.

Next up, the home team will take on the Golden State Warriors, who have won three of the last four NBA championships.

Game 1 is scheduled for Thursday, May 30 at 9 pm in Toronto. And if you aren’t able to watch courtside, you can count on these big screens to keep your head in the game.

Jurassic Park

Spectators can look forward to watching the games on the big screen alongside thousands of passionate fans at Maple Leaf Square Jurassic Park during the playoff tailgate parties. Fans have the chance to win trips to road games and also enjoy giveaways, fun activations, special guests, a live DJ, and more. Plus, Real Sports Bar & Grill will have a beer vendor set up and Real Sports Apparel will sell exclusive playoff merchandise at a pop-up location.
