The Canadian rapper watched Game 5 alongside the rabid Toronto home fans outside Scotiabank Arena at Jurassic Park, singing the team's praises after hanging on for a 105-99 win on the road.

"We have the best player. We have the best fans in the whole NBA, in the whole world," Drake told the awaiting cameras post-game.

"We are like a college sports team, the Toronto Raptors are a college sports team, I promise you. I love Toronto, I love this team and we're going to the NBA Finals."

Even though he wasn't at the game, Drake still dominated the conversation at the arena with the daughter of Bucks owner Wes Edens, Mallory, sporting a t-shirt with Pusha T's face on it while sitting courtside next to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers.

Drake and Pusha T had a well publicised beef last year, but despite Edens' troll, Drizzy had the last laugh, changing his Instagram profile picture to one of Edens rocking the shirt at Game 5.

Bring on Game 6!
