Video: Trash-Talking Drake Nearly Threw The Bulls Off Their Game

Monday night, Drake decided to help out his home team the Toronto Raptors by double-teaming the Bulls.

Drake went right up behind Bulls guard Justin Holiday, who was trying to in-bound the ball to his team, but Holiday took too long causing a 5-second violation. It's not clear whether it was Drake's yelling or the Raptors' defense, but it did force a turnover at a critical moment in the game. There were 25 seconds left on the clock, and the Bulls were only up 106-103.

Drake doesn't seem to be much of a good luck charm: the Bulls beat the Raptors 109-107.

There were no hard feelings on the Bulls side, though. Doug McDermott snapped a post-game Instagram with the rapper:

Big win in the 6ix
