Multi-platinum rapper and Toronto Raptors Global Ambassador Drake had a bold prediction during his very own "Drake Night", noting the Houston Rockets' 17-game win streak would come to an end.
In addition, Drake also sat down with the announcers during the game and talked about his Vitamin C-diet that he was on tonight and that he saw James Harden out the night before drinking Mai Tai's.
The Toronto Raptors and the Houston Rockets will probably not play again until next season - a Finals series isn't out of the question, but we're getting ahead of ourselves predicting anything like that. The Blazers' streak started when they beat Golden State 123-117 at the Moda Center on February 14, the last game before the All-Star break.
Despite their struggles from 3-point range, Houston chipped away and knotted the score at 102-102 on a 3-pointer by Harden with 2:10 left.
Rockets: F Ryan Anderson (left hip) missed his sixth straight game.
Fortunately, the Blazers defeated the Warriors last night so the Rockets are still the No. 1 seed in the west.
For the Raptors, it was Lowry leading the way with 30 points after hitting seven of nine three-pointers. So mad that a few days later, DeRozan scored a franchise-high 52 points on New Years Day (how's that for star player?). Houston, meanwhile, missed all five of its 3-point attempts in the frame and didn't find its rhythm in the second.
Harden finished with 40 points on 15-of-22 shooting, 4-of-8 from three, but no other Rockets scored more than 14 as they fall to 51-14 on the season. Houston played well in the second half, but they dug themselves too deep of a hole in the first two quarters to climb out of.
Playing in front of a raucous home crowd, the Raptors wasted no time getting their fans into the action with a 16-point lead after the first quarter. The Raptors shot 48.2 percent overall and held Houston to just 9-of-27 from three-point range.
By the half, the Rockets were just 1 of 9 on 3s.
Houston will go to Dallas on Sunday looking to avoid back-to-back losses, and the Raptors will put their six-game winning streak on the line Sunday when they go to NY.
