Cavs Players And Rapper Drake Exchange Angry Words During NBA Playoff Game

It took overtime to separate the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors in the first game of their NBA Eastern Conference semi-final on Tuesday night. The Cavs won the game 113-112 in Toronto.

It also took several standers-by to separate Cavs squad member Kendrick Perkins and rapper Drake, a Raptors fan. The two exchanged heated words just before half-time.

After the game, Perkins - whose father Kenny played basketball in Ireland with Killester - said the exchange had begun when Drake overhead a conversation between him and former teammate with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Serge Ibaka.

"I was fucking with Serge, my old teammate. I wasn't talking to (Drake)," Perkins told ESPN.

"(I was) telling him 'We about to win this game,' and Drake butted in talking shit to me. So I said something back to him.

"He said something slick so I said something back: 'Sit your ass down and watch the game.'"
