Raptors president gives everyone in Canada permission to leave work early today

May 3 2018, 6:09 pm

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.┬áBut 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?
