Tuesday night, (Nov 16) the Toronto Raptors hosted the Golden State Warriors on ESPN for their third annual “Drake Night” in the ‘Six’. The organization handed out exclusive T-shirts for the occasion, as Drizzy even held a press conference before the game. His “Woman Crush Everyday” shirt featuring ESPN’s Doris Burke stole the show, as people are wondering where they can get their hands on one of their own.

The special night was spoiled by great performances from Kevin Durant (30 points) and Steph Curry (35 points), who led the Warriors to a 127-121 victory over the Drizzy inspired Raptors. The Dubs continued to troll Drake in their post-game interviews, as the Toronto native trash talked weeks leading into and throughout the whole game. The “Views” artist even purposely bumped into KD during his interview after the game, resulting in the Durant death stare. The former MVP said, “I don’t give a damn about no damn Drake Night!”

Draymond Gren also got in on the fun, crashing Andre Iguodala’s presser to clown Drake’s boots, “Drake’s boots cost them the game tonight,” Green said.
