Cavs’ Kendrick Perkins reveals why he got into heated exchange with Drake

Kendrick Perkins, Drake

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Toronto Raptors in a thrilling Game 1 of their second round series, 113-112. LeBron James finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists, and two blocks on the night, but received a lot of help from his supporting cast when he needed it most. It was a game where the Cavs didn’t have their first lead until the overtime session on a Kyle Korver three-pointer.

After the stunning victory, tempers flared near the Cavs’ bench when inactive center Kendrick Perkins got into a heated exchange with Raptors fan and Toronto native Drake.

No one knew exactly what the incident was about, but the two had to be separated as both teams headed to their respective locker rooms.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Perkins was having a little friendly trash talk with former Oklahoma City Thunder teammate Serge Ibaka, telling him that his Cavs were going to come back and win the game. Apparently, that’s when Drake intervened and started trash talking back. That carried over into the second half and eventually, postgame.

“What happened was I was talking to my old teammate Serge (Ibaka) walking into halftime telling him ‘We about to win this game,’ and Drake butted in talking shit to me. So I said something back to him.”

The Cavs got the last laugh tonight, and will look to win Game 2 on Thursday night.
