While Raptors fans wait for game six between the Raptors and Bucks on Saturday, they will have a lot to talk about with this new Drake drama - and some are already taking to social media to share their thoughts on the courtside drama. Throwing out the team's opening-round sweep of the Detroit Pistons, the starting point guard entered Game 4 shooting 35.4 percent from the field and 19.5 percent from deep on 5.1 3-point attempts per game. "You've just got to have fun with it and enjoy it".

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer told reporters after the game the forward tweaked his ankle on a defensive possession and did not come out in the final minutes of the game to get a breather.

Leonard imbued the Raptors with a sense of goal on every possession, while the Bucks fell apart at the seams.

The series will shift back to Toronto for Game 6 on Saturday. Same mindset I've been having throughout the playoffs, just come in, have fun, try to execute the best I can and play confident, and whatever happens after that is what happens. "Superstar. Superstar", Kyle Lowry said of Leonard after the game. Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors with nine points in the period, while Eric Bledsoe led the Bucks, also with nine points.

"I like Drake, I think he's great for the game, but for an National Basketball Association coach to be anxious about that instead of worrying about that", Barkley said. "He was making the right passes, and we made some shots for him tonight".

If Drake did this during road games, then that's a different story and if security at Scotiabank Arena doesn't feel the need to do something about then the opposing team shouldn't concern themselves about it. When viewed through that lens, his deadpan statements are fairly refreshing, considering the cavalcade of clichés that usually emerge from players' mouths after big games. When he did play, we went about our business. "There was one time I was trying to give him an extended rest and he didn't really want it so he must be OK". You know, just from my input, I've been here before.

"We still frankly fight some perceptions, that it's always cold because we're in Canada, some people don't realize the size of Toronto. when they start to see more and more of it we can start to turn those perceptions around". "Now we're talking. I mean, listen, he's playing great".
