Things got heated between music star Drake and Cleveland Cavaliers reserve Kendrick Perkins during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Cavs and the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday.
As players from both teams were heading to their respective locker rooms for halftime, Cavs guard Jose Calderon went over to speak with Drake. Something then sparked a verbal back-and-forth between Drake and Perkins:

Raptors Republic's Blake Murphy made light of the situation, alluding to Perkins spending most of this season in the NBA G League:
