Drake, Kendrick Perkins get into war of words during, after Game 1 of Raptors-Cavs | NBA

Drake is following in Fred VanVleet’s footsteps in not backing down from the Cavaliers.

As Cleveland players made their way off the court at halftime, the Toronto native had something to say to Cavs backup big man Kendrick Perkins.

Drake, with his arm wrapped around Jose Calderon, exchanged words with Perkins before J.R Smith stepped in to push his teammate away.

Sitting in his regular courtside seat, Drake has been a part of the action all season long, often interacting with opposing players along the sideline.

But it didn’t stop there. Following the Cavs’ Game 1 victory, Perkins and Drake got reacquainted with more players and security staff required to break them up.

As Perkins was pushed toward the locker room by teammates, he continued to bark at Drake, who engaged with officials before exiting with his entourage.

Here’s Perkins’ explanation of the whole situation, as told to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:
