Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball - Cavaliers News, Scores, Stats, Rumors & More

The pair exchanged words as the Raptors and Cavaliers headed to the tunnels at halftime.

He's become the face of the team and a source of courtside inspiration at home games over the years, so it's not surprising he shared heated words with an opposing player recently. Pitchfork has reached out to Drake's representatives for comment.

The NBA has a fan code of conduct that calls for spectators to behave without disruption.

A day earlier, Toronto coach Dwane Casey said he had no issue with Drake's antics, saying he wished all Raptors fans had the same passion as the three-time Grammy victor.

But the Toronto Star's Bruce Arthur appeared to hear some of the second exchange.

"I'm here to represent the Cleveland Cavaliers", Perkins told ESPN. "I mean, really. If he leaves me alone, I'll leave him alone, and that's all there is".

Not the rapper Kendrick everyone will first think this is, but rather Cleveland backup center Kendrick Perkins.

He was asked by Cavs' security after game one if he wanted an escort to the team bus in case he ran into Drake.

The Toronto rapper, the Raptors' global ambassador, jawed with the inactive forward at halftime and after the final whistle in Cleveland's 113-112 overtime win Tuesday at the Air Canada Centre.

The Cavaliers also eliminated the Raptors from the playoffs in 2016 en route to winning the National Basketball Association championship by defeating the Golden State Warriors.
