Nov. 11 (UPI) -- A man named Dave used the Toronto Raptors' Dance Pak to propose to his now fiancé Joann Thursday at the Air Canada Centre.

Dave made wedding ring moves at the 2:49 mark of the first quarter. The Raptors trailed the New Orleans Pelicans 20-17 at the time.

Toronto won the contest 122-118.

The couple was playing the "Guess the Destination" contest with Raptors in-game TV host Kat Stefankiewicz. Joann had to spin a wheel to determine the number of cards that the dance team could hold up, revealing letters. The letters typically spell out a destination, where the winner gets to go if they correctly guess the answer.

She spun the wheel, getting a "5" and the dancers revealed five letters.

The dancers revealed, in order, the letters: I, L, U, A and E.

The fans then asked the dancers to reveal the rest of the letters, unveiling the big question: "Will you marry me?"

Dave bent down on one knee and asked: "Joann, will you marry me?"

Joann put her hands over her face and screamed: "Yes!" Dave slipped the ring on her finger.

"Hmmmm what could that destination be?" the Raptors tweeted after the game.

The Raptors battle the Boston Celtics at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at TD Garden.

"Truth: getting these perfect stress me out but I've got a yes record of 6/6," Stefankiewicz tweeted. "Congrats Dave & Joann!!"
