"Let's Go Bruno" The Night Bruno Caboclo Made His NBA Debut and Won the Internet

The Raptors finished off their seven game homestand on a strong note. They were just one point short of one of their largest margins of victory with a 124-83 win over the Milwaukee Bucks to move to 10-2 on the season. With the game well in hand and a 43-point lead going into the fourth quarter, Raptors rookie Bruno Caboclo was ready to make his NBA debut, and the internet was ready.




His first basket in the NBA was an alley oop dunk and the Air Canada Centre erupted. Instead of 'Defence' chants, there were 'BRU-NO' chants. Instead of 'Let's Go Raptors' chants, there were 'Let's Go Bru-no' chants. This was by far, the most excitement I've seen over fourth quarter garbage time basketball.

Bruno Caboclo followed up his dunk with a three pointer and finished the night with 8 points, 1 rebound and 1 block in 12 minutes of play. The Raptor fans at the ACC had found a new found fan favourite.
