April 17 (UPI) — The Toronto Raptors’ mascot recently sported a suit and chain, nearly identical to the outfit Russell Westbrook sported earlier this season.
“The Raptor” wore the outfit on Tuesday before Game 2 of the Raptors’ Eastern Conference playoff series against the Washington Wizards. The garb included a light blue jacket and light blue pants. The Raptor also wore white shoes and sunglasses.
“Heading into Game 2 with #ShirtlessSwag! @TheStarters @raptors #NoShirtSzn,” the Raptor tweeted.
Westbrook wore his suit — sans shirt — on Sunday before the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 116-108 win against the Utah Jazz at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.
The Thunder battle the Jazz in Game 2 of the Western Conference playoff series at 8 p.m. Wednesday in Oklahoma City.
Toronto battles Washington in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoff series at 8 p.m. Friday at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.
