Last night was a big night in the 6ix for Toronto Raptors fans. Although the team lost 109 - 119 against the Houston Rockets, Torontonians still got to cheer the team on at home in the Scotiabank Arena. To make things even better, the Toronto Raptors celebrity fan, Drake was in the building, which somewhat makes up for the loss.

Drake has never been shy about showing his love for the Raptors. In fact, some people accused him of acting as if he was actually on the team after they won the NBA Championship earlier this year.

Despite the haters, Drake maintains the stance that he's just an incredibly loyal fan, and as the team's official global ambassador, it's literally his job to make sure that people are hyped about the Raptors.

At last night's game, Drizzy was spotted sitting courtside (as per usual), cheering on Kyle Lowry and co. along with his head of security, Nessel "Chubbs" Beezer.

In typical Drake fashion, the rapper could be seen hyping up the team from the sidelines, and much like the action on the court, his excitement was hard to miss.

Fans of the 6ix God took to Twitter to share how enthused they were about seeing him.

"If the raptors put drake on its payroll it’d be fair Mans never missing home games he lowkey motivates more than Nick Nurse the head coach," one person tweeted.

"Nothing makes me happier than to see Drake at the Raptors game," commented another viewer.

Also at last night's game were some players from the Toronto Maple Leafs, including Auston Matthews and Fredrick Anderson. To keep things extra Canadian, Matthew's was rocking Justin Bieber's clothing line, Drew House.

The next Raptors game is happening on Sunday, December 8 against the 76ers. The team's next home game will be on Wednesday, December 11 against the Clippers. You can purchase tickets for the game on Ticketmaster.
