NBA Playoffs 2014: DeMar DeRozan hits the J, Drake approves (GIF)

After the Brooklyn Nets defeated Toronto Raptors and stole home court advantage in Game 1, they lost Game 2, then held serve in Game 3 in Brooklyn. The Raptors, however, were able to win Game 5 at Brooklyn, then defeated the Nets at home in Game 5.

That means the Nets have their backs against the wall in Game 6 and must win to force a Game 7 in Toronto on Sunday.

The Nets have gotten off to a fantastic start in the must-win game, but that hasn’t stopped the Raptors from making plays. It also hasn’t stopped their celebrity fan, rapper Drake, from making the trip to Brooklyn.

On particular play in the first quarter, the Raptors’ leading scorer, shooting guard DeMar DeRozan, hit a beautiful turnaround jumper on Nets’ swingman Paul Pierce. The camera panned to Drake and he was quite pleased with the shot.
