Raptors fans in Halifax were left disappointed as Toronto fell to the Golden State Warriors in game five of the NBA Championship.

Thousands of Haligonians watched from inside and outside Rogers Square in hopes Toronto would take home their first ever NBA title.

The night started with plenty of optimism as fans sang our national anthem before tipoff. 

Fans would often chant, "Let's go Raptors" at peak volume and with each basket scored, Haligonians grew louder and louder.

But in the end, it was not the result they wanted as Golden State managed to edge out the Raptors 106-105 to extend the series to six games.

Though fans in Halifax were visibly upset, the Raptors will still have a chance to win the championship on Thursday as they still lead the series 3-2.

Tipoff is at 10 p.m. and if you can't make it down to Rogers Square, you can listen to the radio broadcast on NEWS 95.7.
