NBA players on visiting teams sometimes order food before games from the clubhouse attendants, who will hit the concessions stands or other areas and get the visiting player some arena food, usually chicken fingers and fries. Toronto's Reggie Evans put in an order but never tasted a bite.

After the clubhouse attendant delivered the food, wrapped in a white towel, while Evans was on the XL Center court shooting, an unidentified teammate stole the meal and hid it in his locker, sharing fries with Raptor teammates and eating the fingers hurriedly while watching to see if Evans entered the locker room.

The teammate escaped without suspicion.
