Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau is tuned in to Game 6 of Raptors-Bucks

Justin Trudeau, Raptors, Bucks

As Tas Melas of the Starters would say: Unclench the butts! Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau surely had his butts unclenched after watching Canada’s beloved Toronto Raptors punch their ticket to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.

The Finals are headed to Canada! This is history making, not only for Toronto but also for the league.

The Raptors closed out the no. 1 seeded Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6, 100-94 to advance to their first ever NBA Finals, where they will take on the two-time defending champions Golden State Warriors.

It probably wasn’t an easy watch for Trudeau early in the game, as the Bucks raced out to massive lead in the first half before Toronto trimmed the lead to seven heading into the third quarter.

Milwaukee threatened to pull away further in the third, going up by as much as 15. However, the Raptors clamped up on defense and found their rhythm offensively late in the third quarter.

Toronto used a 26-3 run from the third to the fourth quarter to turn a 15-point deficit into an eight-point lead in the payoff period. Both teams traded blows down the stretch before the Raptors eventually closed the deal in the final moments to secure their first ever Eastern Conference championship.

With the NBA’s biggest stage headed to Toronto, Justin Trudeau might just make his way to Scotiabank Arena to show his support to Canada’s lone professional basketball team in the NBA.

Toronto will host Games 1 and 2 of the Finals in what should be an awesome series.
