The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 11-1 at Wrigley Field on Thursday night (Oct. 19) to clinch the National League pennant and advance to the franchise’s first World Series since 1988. This called for celebration in L.A. and on Twitter (and beyond for those everywhere bleeding Dodger blue).

Magic Johnson, NBA Hall of Fame legend and co-owner of the Dodgers, was at The Staples Center as the Los Angeles Lakers — Johnson is president of basketball operations — opened their 2017 season while all of this was unfolding. The Staples Center’s official Twitter account shared a video of Johnson explaining the moment.

“It was amazing because the Dodgers had just clinched going to the World Series,” Johnson says in the clip, “and the crowd responded — standing ovation, clapping, screaming. It’s been an amazing evening. I’m so proud of all the Dodger players. Our manager, Dave (Roberts). The ownership group, and most importantly, Dodger fans everywhere.”
