As a team, unquestionably. Obviously gotta finish this game and not Blazers this up.

Incredible. 13 point lead isn't as much as it seems like with a full quarter to go. But this feels great.

Great game. In the playoffs you gotta destroy the other team when you can. Kill their confidence. In the last five mins sit Kawhi, but until then play offence. Great second half so far.

What a game for the Raptors. Huge credit to them for coming out strong as an entire team tonight. Brand new series!

Great win! Hopefully Leonard got some needed rest in the fourth quarter. Best of 3! Go Raptors!

Even more amazing when you consider that they probably should have won game 1.

Also I love Drake when he is courtside. A Toronto kid who is proud to from there. Plus you can tell he get to the opposition. It's got to be annoying to have him in your face all game when your struggling.

I don't get why so many Canadians get butthurt over him. I guess just because Canadians in generally hate celebrities. But he's one that wears Canada and the Raptors on his sleeve and represents our country on a pretty big level.

He's not a poser just jumping on a bandwagon, he's followed this team through every up and down and would be here with a ticket if he wasn't rich and famous.

He's not a Hollywood celebrity saying "Let's go to the Lakers game cause TMZ will be there, too!".

I dunno - he has a well documented history of being at any sporting event where he can get face time. And in addition to that he was missing this year for a huge chunk of time even when not on tour. Some articles were wondering where he was and if the relationship with MLSE soured quietly.


Of course he likes the team, but in fairness to fans it's the constant cuts to see him courtside that drives me crazy. Do NY fans see Spike Lee at every turn? or Jack Nicholas in LA? They may show them a couple times, but not every two seconds. Seems a bit desperate by the local networks to be jumping on the "Drake loves the Raptors" bandwagon and we have to show him 50 times a game to prove it.

Nailed it. It's genuine and that's why I love it.

Anyways Powell loves playing the Bucks eh? Love the emotion from Serge and Gasol. I was worried Serge was going to get a tech when he swung on the rim like that.

He's the Nickelback of Rap/hip hop. That's why people don't like him.

But I personally agree he genuinely loves the Raptors and always has.
