Many NBA games were scheduled just shortly after the news broke. Several players have paid tribute in their own ways but the San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors took a special approach to honor the legend.

As the game started, both teams dribbled out the shot clock and took consecutive 24-second violations. Of course, 24 represents the number Bryant wore from 2007 to the end of his career in 2016.
