May 25 will go down in history as one of the biggest days in the history of Canadian basketball.

Not only did the Toronto Raptors earn a Game 6 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks to advance to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history, they also did it in front of an audience of historic proportions.

According to Sportsnet's Arash Madani, a Canadian audience of over three million viewers tuned into the decisive game, shattering the previous record of 2.2 million, set in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

With the announcement that each NBA Finals game will either air on TSN or Sportsnet, it's fair to assume that this record will again be broken as the Raptors look to dethrone Stephen Curry and the two-time defending-champion Warriors.

The NBA Finals begin on Thursday, May 30 at Scotiabank Arena.
