The Toronto Raptors roared back after being down by as much as 27 against the Golden State Warriors Saturday night. Throughout the game, Raptors ambassador and Toronto native Drake did his part, constantly trying to get in the Warriors’ head – specifically after a missed wide-open dunk attempt by Kevin Durant.
“I hated missing that one,” Durant said, according to Mark Medina of The Mercury News. “I had to ignore him. I heard him talking some trash too on the sideline.”
The Raptors clawed back to give themselves an opportunity for the win before ultimately falling to the defending champions. However, Durant isn’t ready to boost Drake’s ego as a game-changer.
“Don’t give Drake that much credit,” Durant said. “He’s not the reason it was fun out there tonight. But he does bring a different element to the game as someone that was so close to the organization and city.”
Drake didn’t stop there, as he harassed two-time MVP Stephen Curry after missing two free throws late in the game.
“I don’t pay it no mind,” Curry said. “You got to knock those down.”
