Raptors' Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan returned to Rogers Centre for ALCS Game 3 in style

With the Blue Jays battling the Indians in the American League Championship Series, all of Toronto had its eyes on Rogers Centre for Monday night's Game 3.

Four of those eyes belonged to two standout Raptors, point guard Kyle Lowry and shooting guard DeMar DeRozan -- who wore their best Jays gear to the game:.

The MLB postseason being scheduled in early-to-mid October led to a favorable opportunity for NBA stars around the league to take in a game or two. After all, the start of the 2016-2017 season is right around the corner. The scheduling convenience allowed for LeBron James, J.R. Smith and several other Cavs to head to Progressive Field for the Indians' 2-1 win in Game 2 over the weekend.

For Lowry and DeRozan, who had a night off Monday before heading to Detroit to play a preseason game with the Pistons on Wednesday, it would seem the chance to take in some heated ALCS action was just too good to pass up.

Besides, they had just visited for Game 3 of the ALDS last week, with Lowry and DeRozan in the same seats and some of their teammates (and Drake, natch) up in a luxury suite. 

Whether prog-rock heroes or NBA stars, Toronto's best really come together when it really matters. In the end, though, the Indians won, 4-2, to take a commanding 3-0 series lead. 

Will Cleveland complete the sweep or will the Jays extend the series? Find out on Tuesday in Game 4, airing on TBS/Sportsnet at 4 p.m. ET.
