It may be over for the Leafs, but the Raptors have given sports fans in Toronto something to celebrate.

The team plays its first game in the NBA playoffs this afternoon.

Toronto will take on the Brooklyn Nets at the ACC at 12:30 p.m.

The Raptors are back in the post-season for the first time since 2008, and the did so after a record-setting regular season. When they beat the Bucks on Monday, they won their 48th game of the season, which was a first for the franchise.

If you're thinking of buying tickets to the playoff games at the ACC, you might not be happy to hear that they're the most expensive in the league. Forbes reported that they cost $370 on average, which is about 240 per cent more than during the regular season.

If you don't have tickets to today's game but still want to watch and celebrate with a crowd of fans, head to Maple Leaf Square for the "Party In The Square."

The game will be broadcast on the big screen in the square, and there will be a DJ and giveaways.

The team says fans can head to the square two hours before each game. Admission is free.
