Oh man. The Toronto Raptors managed an unlikely comeback in the fourth quarter of Game 5 on April 26, and they might have Drake to thank for that. After Indiana Pacers player Rodney Stuckey fell into the rapper, Drake taunted him, which may or may not have affected the team’s gameplay. Watch!
If Indiana Pacers player Rodney Stuckey was ever a Drake fan, he’s probably not anymore. During Game 5 on April 26, the basketball player fell into the rapper, and then, Drake taunted him by clapping at the back of his head. Ouch.
As the game headed into the fourth quarter, the Toronto Raptors were trailing the Indiana Pacers by 13 point, but they still managed to come out on top with a 102-99 victory. So how’d they do it? Well, the Raptors may have gotten some help from Drake. The rapper, along with the rest of the Raptors’ fans probably got in the heads of the Pacers players. Just look at the video above, during which Drake claps at the back of Rodney’s head, following a nasty fall and a Pacers turnover.

The Pacers had a five-point lead with seven minutes left in the game, when Rodney fell on top of Drake while trying to recover the ball. The play resulted in a turnover, and Drake applauded his unfortunate mistake. It seemed harsh, but we’re not too surprised. This isn’t the first time Drake has taunted a basketball player. Earlier in the season, Drake caused a Chicago Bulls turnover by yelling into Justin Holiday’s ear.
