Winnipeg is a hockey town. But when the NBA comes to the Manitoba capital, the MTS Centre most certainly fills up as well! It‘s been a while since there was a professional basketball team in Winnipeg (Winnipeg Cyclone
anyone?!), making the fans even more receptive. I was excited to be asked by NBA Canada to be eyes on the ground and photograph the game court side.
Live. In Winnipeg. I was super stoked.
Timberwolves were considered to be the home team… But there were equal numbers of Bulls‘ jerseys in the crowd.
Given I was shooting more for style than for press, I decided to go classic BW for the edits. Clean and simple.
Final: 114-105 Bulls
