Draymond Green: 'It Wasn't Really a Scuffle' With Drake

Saturday, 01 Jun, 2019

This speed the Raptors appeared to illustrate in Game 1 is an interesting narrative because it was less the Raptors' speed and pretty much entirely Siakam's, something so rapid that Green seems to have mistaken Siakam for the entire Toronto team.

There's some optimism within members of the organization that a Game 3 arrival could be viable, but there's a stronger possibility that Game 4 is the most logical option, sources said.

Drake and Steph shared a amusing exchange at the game.

'It wasn't really a scuffle because I didn't hit him and he didn't hit me or I didn't push him or he didn't push me, ' Green elaborated. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday that he had spoken to the rapper about having boundaries. It's the first Finals game in not just Toronto, but Canadian history. "So that's one example, and I would also say that I think the issue for the league is that he has this ambassador-type role with the team".

Head coach Steve Kerr, who has guided his team to their fifth consecutive Finals, said: "Their defence was great and it wasn't our best night, but we just got outplayed, simple as that".

In a press conference on Friday, he addressed the electric atmosphere at Scotiabank Arena as the Raptors played their first-ever NBA Finals game, and won 118-109.

"If it's one of his soft, R&B songs, I'mma skip it "cause I'm in "kill mode" right now trying to get these four games".

Golden State comes in fresh off a sweep of Portland - this despite injuries to both Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins. He was wearing a signed Dell Curry No. 30 Raptors shirt, in honour of the father of Golden State star Steph Curry.

Yesterday, just before the beginning of the NBA Finals, there was a news story about how the NBA had spoken to the Toronto Raptors about Drake's courtside conduct during the playoffs.

If you were going to bet before the series which Warriors player might feed into Drake's nonsense, Green would have been the clear-cut favorite.
