Last night's NBA showdown between the defending champion Golden State Warriors and Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors lived up to the hype and then some, as Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard both posted season-highs in an overtime thriller at Scotiabank Arena, formerly known as the Air Canada Centre.
Of course, Drake was in his usual court side seat for the highly anticipated matchup and was as active as ever, trolling Kevin Durant and co. throughout the night. For all his jawing, KD sent Drizzy home with a halftime titty twister and a game-worn jersey, as seen in the video embedded below.

Durant finished with a season-high 51 points, including several jaw-dropping three-pointers to keep the Warriors in the game late, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 131-128 OT loss. He also added 11 rebounds and six assists on the night.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr put it best, telling reporters after the game, "When he's feeling it, there's not a whole lot the defense can do."
The 51-point effort marked KD's third straight game with 40+ points, making him the first place to achieve such a stat since Russell Westbrook did it in February to March 2017, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
