With all eyes on Drake following Golden State’s 118-109 loss to Toronto in the NBA Finals, the global ambassador for the Raptors got in the face of Draymond Green of the Raptors.

Drake, who has already drawn the ire of the NBA for his antics on the sidelines, called Green “trash” as he walked off the floor.

Green did have a somewhat trash game, at least in terms of efficiency, as he triple-doubled with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, but shot just 2-of-9 from the field as Golden State had its 12-game winning streak in Game 1s snapped.

A player who did not have a trash game was Pascal Siakam of the Raptors as the Cameroonian player continued his breakout season by scoring a playoff career-high 32 points in his NBA Finals debut, along with eight boards and five dimes.

“I think we did pretty good job at home,” Siakam said. “The fans are amazing, man. I just want to say that. From coming out for warmup to the end of the game, it was just the support and then going crazy. I’ve never seen anything like that.”

Kawhi Leonard added 23 points and Marc Gasol chipped in 20 for the Raptors, while Steph Curry scored 34 and Klay Thompson added 21 for the Warriors.

Green briefly talked about the exchange with Drake at his post-game press conference.

Game 2 of the series is Sunday evening, once again in Toronto.
