Toronto Hip-Hop star and Raptors Ambassador Drake did everything he could last night to make sure Toronto came away with a victory over the high-flying Houston Rockets.
With the Rockets’ 17-game winning streak on the line, Trevor Ariza prepared to inbound the ball near the broadcaster’s table, the area where Drake usually positions himself for games. As Houston players ran around attempting to find space, Drake couldn’t help but attempt get into Ariza’s head.
The trash talking appeared to work considering the play unfolded rather rocky. The win helped the Raptors improve to 48-17 and extend their dominant home record to 28-5.
Ahead of the game, Drake got the chirping going when he insisted the win streak would be snapped that night. The 31-year-old also made a point out of mentioning he will be releasing a new album in the future.
Friday night’s game marked the fourth of six OVO Welcome Toronto nights for the 2017-18 season. You can expect to see Drake on the sidelines doing his thing when the Raps host the Brooklyn Nets on March 23 at the Air Canada Centre.
