The Drake curse didn't seem to hurt the Raptors last night.
Joel Embiid has been known to taunt and troll his opponents without mercy. As the saying goes though, live by the sword, die by the sword. That's exactly what is happening to Embiid in his team's series against the Toronto Raptors. The 76ers were blown out 125-89 last night, with Embiid only scoring 13 points. The 76ers big man has been complaining of illnesses throughout the playoffs and it has affected his play significantly.
With Embiid vulnerable, the Raptors have been taking advantage and now, his taunts are being thrown back in his face. Embiid likes to spread his arms like an airplane when he scores big baskets and on Tuesday, Embiid was subjected to his own troll.
With about nine minutes left in the game, Embiid was checked out by his coach and as he returned to his bench, rapper Drake, who was sitting courtside, started to do the airplane dance which was then mimicked by various members of the Toronto crowd.
After the game, Embiid was asked about it all. That's when the Sixers star explained that he told Drake that he will be back in Toronto for Game 7 on Sunday. Of course, if Embiid wants a chance to play in Game 7, he'll have to carry his team to victory in Game 6 on Thursday.
