Starting Five: Drake tweaks KG

4/28/2014

NEW YORK -- Just hold on, KG.

The Toronto Raptors are going home, having just stolen one on the road from the Brooklyn Nets.

Which, of course, made their No. 1 celebrity fan, rapper Drake, very happy.

So happy that he posted a little trash talk aimed at Kevin Garnett on his Instagram account:

Started with a tanking conspiracy and an F-bomb from Raptors GM Masai Ujiri, now we’re here, with the series tied at 2-2.

Game 5 is Wednesday night at Air Canada Centre, and the building should be absolutely rocking.

Drake, no doubt, will be courtside. And he’ll probably be bringing his lint roller, just in case.

Question: What do you think of Drake's trash talk? Let us know in the comments section below.

In case you missed it: The Nets blew it down the stretch in Game 4. As a result, as Ohm Youngmisuk writes, they find themselves in a strange position, a group of talented players still trying to figure it out in the middle of a back-and-forth playoff series against a tough opponent.

Stat of the day: The Nets are 22-for-88 from 3-point range in the series (25 percent).

Up next: The Nets are off Monday. We’ll have more on the blog.
