Watch: Drake and Kendrick Perkins get into it after Game 1 too
The Drake and Kendrick Perkins beef extended to after Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series between the Raptors and Cavaliers on Tuesday.
The rapper and Cavs center got into it during halftime of Tuesday’s game in Toronto, with Perkins being restrained by JR Smith. There were more words exchanged after Perkins’ Cavs pulled out a 113-112 overtime win.
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin shared this video from after the game. Drake appears to be saying that he “didn’t say” whatever Perkins thought he did.

Drake, who is from Toronto, is an ambassador for the Raptors and is often in attendance for their games, sometimes mixing things up with opposing players. Perkins was added to Cleveland’s roster late in the regular season but has not played in any postseason games yet, which explains why he was wearing the suit.
The Cavs added Perkins to serve as their muscle and to bring veteran leadership. He certainly is acting as the muscle with Drake.
