Last night, the Indiana Pacers completely blew a double-digit fourth quarter lead, allowing the Toronto Raptors to steal back a pivotal Game 5, pushing the Pacers to the brink of elimination in their first-round series. The Raptors, who have a history of being favored in first-round series, then going on to lose them to lesser teams, seems to have finally gotten that monkey off their back, and they’ll have two chances to move on to the second round, including a possible Game 7 at home in Toronto.
Paul George, who was absolutely stellar last night for the Pacers (39-8-8), couldn’t get it done down the stretch, and the Raptors global ambassador, Drake, had something to say about that on Instagram: a Paul George crying face. It isn’t quite the Michael Jordan masterpiece, but it’s pretty funny.
For some reason, Drake quickly deleted the post, and now has this one up instead.
