Oprah Winfrey show in Toronto cancelled because of NBA Finals
The Toronto Raptors were unable to close out the Golden State Warriors on Monday, much to the detriment of Oprah Winfrey and her fans.
Live Nation Ontario announced in a tweet on Tuesday that the media icon’s show scheduled for Fri. Jun. 14 at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena (the home of the Raptors) had to be cancelled due to the requirements of the NBA Finals.

Game 6 of the Finals will take place in Oakland on Thursday. Should the Warriors win that contest however, Game 7 will be held in Toronto on Sunday.
It goes without saying that Winfrey’s event likely would have gone ahead as planned if the Raptors had taken care of business in Game 5. With head coach Nick Nurse getting a lot of blame for the loss, it’s probably safe to assume that he won’t be getting a free subscription to O Magazine any time soon.
