He's the official team ambassador of the Toronto Raptors, but Drake actually played a key role in the team's 109-107 loss to the Bulls on Monday.

With the Bulls leading by three with 25.8 seconds left in the fourth, the platinum-selling rapper stood up from his front-row seat and started talking to Justin Holiday, who was trying to inbound the ball. As Holiday attempted to find someone to pass to, Drake began talking to him.

Holiday was eventually called for a five-second violation, giving the Raptors the ball in a critical moment of the game.

But the Raptors failed to take advantage of Drake's help in the end.
