Toronto Raptors fan Drake mercilessly trolled the Milwaukee Bucks by changing his Instagram photo to one of the owner’s daughter.
The Raptors won 105-99 at the Bucks on Thursday, taking a crucial 3-2 lead in the conference series thanks to remarkable performances from Giannis Antetokounmpo and Malcolm Brogdon.
The victory means the Raptors are now just one game away from reaching the NBA Finals for the first time in history – should the team win at home on Saturday, it would set up a showdown with the reigning and defending NBA champion, the Golden State Warriors.
And no one would be as happy as Drake, who has been ever-present by cheering on his beloved Raptors from courtside.
But during the game’s first quarter in Milwaukee, Mallory Edens, daughter of Bucks owner Wes Edens, was seen wearing a shirt that had Pusha T’s face on it.

Pusha T and Drake share a complex rivalry, with both hip hop stars dropping personal diss tracks about the other last year.
It is unclear if Edens’ fashion choice on the night of the game against the Raptors was intentional, but Drake couldn’t help but respond after the Raptors won – so he changed his Instagram profile photo to a picture of Mallory Edens.
Thursday’s loss for the Bucks was the team’s third consecutive defeat. If it loses a fourth on Saturday, Toronto advances to the NBA Finals, ending its conference series rivalry with Milwaukee.
A Raptors win could also mean Drake’s notorious sports curse will have been lifted.
Drake was famously photographed with Conor McGregor before the Irishman’s UFC 229 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last year.
He was seen with the Paris Saint-Germain full back Layvin Kurzawa in April, one week before PSG suffered a heavy 5-1 loss to Lille. Drake’s curse got so real that the Italian soccer club AS Roma banned its players from being seen with Drake.
After this recent Raptors win, Drake may have turned into a good luck charm.
