Toronto police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying eight men wanted for damaging a squad car during the celebrations that followed the Raptors’ NBA championship win.

Officers were called to the area of York Street and Bremner Boulevard just before midnight on Thursday for reports that several men had jumped on and struck a parked police cruiser following the team’s big win.

Police say video footage posted on social media showed the men jumping on the car and photos showed the windows of a police car smashed.

They’ve released images of the men they’re looking to identify, and urge the suspects to consult a lawyer before turning themselves in.

Fans delirious as Raptors best Warriors to win NBA championship

The Toronto Raptors, a team whose magical playoff run sparked civic pride and raucous enthusiasm across Canada, sent fans into fits of unbridled joy on Thursday as they beat the reigning champ Golden State Warriors in a see-saw thriller to win the NBA championship.

Thousands of spectators who jammed Jurassic Park, the fan zone outside the team’s empty downtown arena, to watch Game 6 of the finals on big screens – some after waiting hours in pouring rain – erupted in a roar as the final buzzer sounded.

“This is the best day of my life!” said John Cooke, 35, of Toronto, as the Raptors won 114-110.

Fans gathered both indoors and at dozens of outdoor venues across the country to cheer on a team from a city many love to hate, their enthusiasm measured by unusually jammed bars.

According to latest figures from payments firm Moneris, spending in bars nationally jumped 63 per on Monday from the same day a year ago, when the Raptors lost a Game 5 nail-biter by a single point. The biggest increase was in Edmonton, which saw spending jump a whopping 279 per cent. Spending in Toronto area bars almost doubled.

“It’s difficult to put into words what this means to me, but my love for my son _ and the Raptors _ is off the charts,” said John Drzazga, 41, of Grimsby, Ont., whose 10-year-old son Dustin spent the first part of the game roaming the zone in an inflatable dinosaur suit with a two-metre tail.

Cities across Ontario held packed viewing events, as did many other places from coast to coast, such as Halifax, which threw a massive outdoor block party.

Montreal shut down two city blocks to allow the improbable: people cheering a team from Toronto. Thousands braved the rain, forming a red tide, with organizers handing out “We the North” T-shirts.

One man was booed when he showed up wearing a blue Warriors T-shirt but he ripped it off to reveal a Raptors jersey. The Warriors shirt was set on fire, burning until police moved in to extinguish it.

Fans in Regina, as they did on Monday, watched on the massive screen at the Roughriders’ home stadium, while those in Edmonton headed to the Edmonton Expo Centre.

Even in Rickford, Ill., hometown to Raptors star Fred VanVleet, fans began their party at 6 p.m. at the newly created Jurassic Park RKFD to take in their local hero.

“Fred is an amazing basketball player and a genuinely good person both on and off the court,” Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara said. “We’re excited to support him as he works to bring home an NBA championship.”

In Oakland, Calif., where the Warriors hosted the Raptors, cheers erupted in Oracle Stadium as Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLauchlan performed O Canada and Pat Monahan, of pop-rock act Train, sang The Star Spangled Banner before the game got underway.

The championship win by the Raptors marked the first for a Canadian team in one of the big four professional sports since the Toronto Blue Jays won the 1993 World Series and the first NBA team outside the U.S. to go all the way.

“I remember coming here as an immigrant from Sri Lanka in 1989 and we watched Joe Carter hit that home run for the Jays,” said Subi Mahan, 37, of Pickering, Ont., who was with his two boys, Kiyan, 6, and Kishan, 9. “(So) to be here and share this with my boys is amazing. This is what love is.”

Outside Christchurch, New Zealand, a Canadian flag hung on a suburban fence emblazoned, “Let’s Go Raptors” and “We the North.”

Love of the Raptors, with their best performance in their 24 seasons, prompted Toronto Mayor John Tory to don his now-signature black-and-gold blazer to visit the gathering crowd Thursday.

“It is beyond comprehension that people could be down here, huddled under these makeshift tents, for hours on end, more than a day, overnight,” Tory said. “It’s cold, it’s rainy, it’s been such a terrible spring, but they’ve been here week after week, day after day, and they’re the greatest fans in sports.”

Raptors win first NBA championship, beat Warriors 114–110

For the first time in franchise history, the Raptors are NBA champions.

It was a nail-biter in Oakland, but the Raptors pulled out a 114-110 win over Golden State Warriors in Game 6.

Toronto has become the first team outside the United States to win an NBA title and is the first championship for a major Toronto sports franchise since the Blue Jays in 1993.

Kawhi Leonard captured the NBA finals MVP after leading the Raptors in points for the entire post season.

Head Coach Nick Nurse commended his team on the victory, “We did a really good job of just keeping playing. It was kind of a fitting way our whole season where something went bad, we didn’t react, we just went to the next play and we made the next play. And we got ourselves a championship.”

Veteran Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakim both had 26 points to lead the Raptors to victory, VanVleet had 22, while Kawhi Leonard has 19.

Klay Thompson had a game-leading 30 points, but left the game in the third quarter with an apparent knee injury. The Warriors say Thompson will not return after suffering a left knee injury.

Kyle Lowry led the way for a strong start for the Raptors, scoring all of Toronto’s first 11 points. Siakim contributed beyond the arc as well, hitting two three-pointers shortly after.

The Raptors led 17-12 through the first five minutes of Game 6. The Warriors were quick to catch up, taking their first lead with just over two minutes left in the first, 27-26.

It’s was a back-and-forth match up with 16 lead changes.

Toronto has 13 three-pointers in Game 6 and are shooting just under 40 per cent from beyond the arc – a far cry from their performance on Monday.

This will be the last game played at Oracle Arena, as the Warriors move to San Francisco for the 2019 and 2020 NBA season.

Toronto had been anxiously waiting for the second shot at their first title after the Warriors beat the Raptors by one point on Monday night in Game 5.

The threat of thunderstorms had Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment contemplating whether to allow fans in and instead open up Scotiabank Arena for a viewing party, but say the weather forecast will keep people outside.

MLSE adds they will continue to monitor the weather and Scotiabank Arena will be used as a contingency plan if conditions “impact the safety of our fans.”

Mayor John Tory and Raptors Global Ambassador Drake both joined the crowd at Jurassic Park, showing their support here in Toronto.

Tory predicted a Raptors win tonight and praised fans at all the different Jurassic Parks across the GTA.
