It was a week of celebration for the Toronto Raptors.
The team finished off its first NBA season in the new millennium, with a historic home win over the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
But the most meaningful moment of the year came in the fourth quarter when the team held on to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder by 20.
The victory gave the Raptors a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series, and cemented their status as one of the best teams in the East.
The Raptors’ victory was a reminder of how far they’ve come.
After being one of three teams to finish out of the playoffs last season, the Raptors have won four of their last five games.
They’re now one of only three teams in basketball with a winning record and three of their four games in the postseason have been decided by five points or less.
This was the second year in a row the Raptors won at least five games in this series, which has been won by the Heat in all but two of their 11 postseason meetings.
The Raptors are also one of just four teams in history to play in eight straight games.
Their streak of 10 straight wins at home is the longest in the NBA.
The best part about their streak is that they haven’t had a losing season since 2009-10.
The last time the Raptors had a winning season was 2009-11.
Ahead of this season, Raptors GM Masai Ujiri said the team was “a little surprised” when it was announced that the team would be moving to Toronto.
He didn’t specify a reason, but the Raptors were expected to be moving the team in the summer.
Ujiris and his staff have said that the move will be beneficial for the Raptors because of the size of the city.
The move comes just two months after the Raptors signed a 10-year contract extension worth $95 million.
Toronto will have one of two new arenas in the city, the Air Canada Centre.
The other new arena will be built at the BMO Centre, which was recently demolished by the city and is now the home of the Toronto Argonauts.
Toronto also announced that it will add a new public transit facility, which is slated to open later this year.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver said that he has no plans to extend the contract of Raptors coach Dwane Casey, who was fired on Monday.
Silver said Casey will likely earn an extension and that the Raptors will look to get a better deal elsewhere.
He also said the NBA would continue to invest in its own player development program.
The NBA also said that it was planning to spend $100 million over the next three years on player development and salaries.
The new agreement also gives the Raptors access to some of the top free agents in the league, including point guard Kyle Lowry, center DeMar DeRozan, center Jonas Valanciunas and power forward Terrence Ross.
The contract also gives Raptors General Manager Masai Nakashima a $5 million buyout.
