Watch: Did Drake’s trash talk force the Bulls into a five-second violation?

Tuesday March 15th, 2016

The Bulls nearly choked away a late lead against the Raptors on Monday, and Drake looks to have been at least partially to blame.

Chicago led by as many as 13 in the fourth quarter, but Toronto clawed back and was within three with 25.8 seconds left. That’s when Bulls guard Justin Holiday tried to inbound the ball, but was called for a five-second violation.

Drake yapping in his ear the whole time certainly didn’t help.

Forget that the Raptors played some pretty good defense there and the home crowd made plenty of noise. Let’s just give Drake credit for this one. The Bulls won anyway.
