Ujiri incident with deputy under investigation

Ujiri incident with deputy under investigation

The team would only last six seasons in Vancouver - but now McLachlan, the Canadian singer-songwriter behind hits such as "Silence" and "Angel", has played a key role as the Toronto Raptors reach Game 6 of the National Basketball Association finals.

Kelly said the sheriff's office chose to "take the high road" by not arresting Ujiri on national television, but it is clear they want Ujiri to be held accountable.

"He shoved our deputy", Kelly said. Stevens, wearing an NBA-issued credential, was seated about two spots away from where Lowry landed and shoved Lowry in the upper body.

When the final buzzer sounded, jubilant Raptors fans flooded the streets of downtown Toronto for a night of celebration not seen in the city since Major League Baseball's Toronto Blue Jays last won a World Series title in 1993.

Warriors fan Greg Wiener said he was standing next to the deputy when the encounter occurred and did not see Ujiri strike him in the face. He said the officer was not seriously injured in the alleged incident, but did complain of pain in his jaw. At that point, we made a decision to cease and desist given that there were a lot of people on the court.

Wiener said the encounter began when the deputy put his hand on Ujiri's chest and pushed him. "Toronto! Canada! We brought it home baby!" We don't follow the Raptors' management team. "Nothing got out. You guys didn't know what was going on".

The deputy, whom Kelly declined to name, was uninjured.

The Sheriff's office is gathering information on what occurred, talking to witnesses and members of the security teams as well as gathering available video, Sergeant Ray Kelly said Friday. Ujiri has not been charged.

His repeated interactions with athletes before critical games - and their subsequent losses - have earned Drake the unfortunate reputation of bringing bad fortune to teams. "We look forward to resolving the situation".

Raptors spokeswoman Jennifer Quinn did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

For those who are outside of the Bay Area, moving just 11 miles in the same general area may not seem like much.

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.

"I'm amazed at how many people I have talked to from different part of the country who have suddenly become emotionally invested in basketball".
