Good news, everybody!

As the Raptors and Cavaliers prepare for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semi-final series, many fans will need help getting to the game or even a television screen.

That’s because today’s game is being held at an unusually early time, at 6 pm ET (3 pm PT).

Fans from coast to coast are going to need an excuse, and team president Masai Ujiri has come to the rescue. Try showing this letter to the boss:

After dropping Tuesday’s in heartbreaking fashion, Game 2 quite possibly the biggest game in the franchise’s history.

The Raptors finished first in the Eastern Conference with 59 wins, so this is supposed to be their year. But while the Cavs are weaker than they have been in past, they’ve still got LeBron James.

Tonight’s game is effectively a must-win for Toronto. They simply can’t go to Cleveland down 2-0 in the series if they want to win this series.

Charles Barkley still believes…

Do you?
