Oakland, CA – NBA fans were on the edge of their seats as the Golden State Warriors took on the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night (June 13).
As the fourth quarter came to a close, the Raptors were leading the Warriors by one point with 18.5 seconds on the clock. But the Warriors — who won the title last year — were unable to close the gap and wound up losing with a final score of 114-110.
Naturally, Twitter exploded with reactions to Toronto’s victory and many were vocal about wanting to see Drake’s reaction. The 6 God was watching the action from Jurassic Park in Toronto and has been one of the most outspoken supporters of his home team.
In video captured of the moment the game was called, Drake clearly couldn’t contain his enthusiasm.

I’m proud of the Warriors, they played with nothing but heart. Dubs up. They won by technicality , they didn’t win at us at our best. But good game.
