MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks completely dominated the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of their playoff series, romping to a 104-77 victory and a 2-1 series lead.
The most humiliating part of the night for the visitors from Canada, however, may have come before the game.
During player introductions, home teams often make unique musical choices - but the Bucks' choice to play the theme music from children's show "Barney & Friends" as the Raptors were introduced was pure genius:

After the game, Raptors fans voiced their displeasure on social media - some even (likely facetiously) arguing that it cost Toronto the game:

I've never felt more embarrassed being a Raptors fan.
Might have been The Barney song during introductions that threw us off. Never a fan of it either. Next game @Raptors— Jim Treliving (@JTreliving) April 21, 2017
