The game went down to the wire, included an overtime session, and some trash talking from Raptors fan Drake.

The rapper and Cavs center got into it during halftime of Tuesday's game in Toronto, with Perkins being restrained by JR Smith. Drake, who holds the position as the Raptors' Global Ambassador, chose to defend one of his "co-workers", Toronto center Serge Ibaka, after overhearing Perkins antagonizing him.

During and after the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Toronto Raptors 113-112 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference playoff series, the two men nearly tangled.

"I was fucking with Serge, my old teammate", Perkins said after the game.

Perkins and Ibaka both used to play for the Oklahoma City Thunder, reaching the NBA Finals together in 2012. "So I said something back to him".

Drake heard Perkins talking smack to Raptors big man Serge Ibaka.

The argument continued after the game was over, with the two continuing to yell at each other and Drake having to be held back. According to the Cavs' official DJ, DJ Steph Floss, he'll be abstaining from playing Drake at Quicken Loans Arena throughout the Cavs' best-of-seven series with top-seeded Toronto.

It's unclear what caused the fight, but many speculated that the Toronto rapper said something which offended Perkins.
