Kanye West watched epic Raptors-Celtics tilt on 100-foot screen
The Game 6 showdown between the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics became an instant NBA playoffs classic, and to say Kanye West enjoyed the game in a patently extravagant manner would be an understatement.
As the Raptors and Celtics battled it out in double overtime Wednesday night in their Eastern Conference semifinal series, West, an NBA fan of some renown, took to Twitter to showcase how he took in all the action on a massive 100-foot screen.

The Raptors ultimately came out on top after two overtime sessions, beating the Celtics in a win-or-go-home scenario by a score of 125-122 to force a decisive Game 7.
Much of the credit for the victory goes to Kyle Lowry, who put up a clutch, career-defining performance with 33 points, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals in 53:28 of court time. It marked the third time Lowry has scored at least 30 points in a potential elimination game for the Raptors, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
The victory was a remarkable one for the Raptors as a team as well.

Let’s just say that West picked a classic postseason game to show off his ridiculously large screen. Hopefully the Celtics and Raptors put on another show Friday night and that the enigmatic West takes some time away from his so-called “presidential campaign” to enjoy the winner-take-all showdown.
