Toronto rapper Drake has spent most of the NBA Finals relentlessly trolling the Golden State Warriors, but he took a break to show some compassion to Kevin Durant after the Warriors star appeared to re-injure his right calf in the second quarter of Game 5.
While Durant was walking towards the locker room, the former MVP passed the portion of the stands where Drake and a number of other shocked fans were sitting.
The rapper turned to yell something off to the side in frustration, then gave some words of encouragement to Durant and patted him on the back as he walked away.
After Durant was gone, Drake continued to pace back and forth in anguish, clearly upset over the injury.

Durant appeared to plant the wrong way on his right leg, and collapsed to the ground while grabbing his right calf.
The Warriors later announced that Durant suffered a “right lower leg injury” and would not return to the game.
An MRI was scheduled for Tuesday morning, and Durant was seen exiting Scotiabank Arena on crutches.
