Monday night was a hot mess of emotions.

In an unfortunate turn of events, the Toronto Raptors came ever-so-close to winning their first NBA Championship, but couldn’t quite seal the deal, losing 106-105 to the Golden State Warriors.

And while Raptors fans headed home with heavy hearts, they (thankfully) didn’t let their emotions get the best of them. In fact, the Toronto Police say there were no incidents involving fans overnight.

Regardless, it was a busy night for local police, as officers had to keep an eye on both the viewing areas at Jurassic Park and Yonge and Dundas Square, which reached capacity early into the night.

“We would like to remind the public to make decisions that do not impact their own safety or that of others when gathering to enjoy game [sic] celebrations,” said Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu.

Police are also advising fans to plan ahead and arrange a safe ride home, especially if you plan on consuming alcohol.
