What makes Winnipeg a great city to live in and to visit? Events such as the recent NBA Canada exhibition game between the Chicago Bulls and the Minnesota Timberwolves by True North Sports & Entertainment Limited.
Indeed, Winnipeg seems to have plenty of NBA fans. Over 15,000 lined up to watch this epic NBA battle at the MTS Centre.
Not only was the game exciting, there was also entertainment between the quarters and special recognition of some great veteran players such as Robert Parish, retired American basketball player seen here.
The game was close but the Chicago Bulls maintained a 10-point spread throughout the match except at the half way point where the Timberwolves shortened the gap.
In the end, it was a slam dunk win for the Chicago Bulls over the Minnesota Timberwolves 114 to 105.
