How bizarre is the 2019 NBA Finals?

Just two games in, it's 1-all with the Golden State Warriors taking Game 2 as they chase a third straight championship while the Toronto Raptors chase their first.

And all social media can talk about is Drake and the kid from and almost 30 year old film franchise.

Drake has been a overshadowing star feature during the Raptors improbable run as they reached the championship series but the Drake curse is still hanging over his head.

The Canadian rapper has been on the sideline throughout their incredible run, cheering on the side with great enthusiasm, but his choice of team to support has generally seen the sides crash out in the most heartbreaking of circumstances.

Some teams have even banned players from taking photos with Drake until the end of the season.

The curse may soon be over — and some fans believe it already is — after the run of the Raptors.

Just don't talk to Anthony Joshua today after he vowed to break the curse against Andy Ruiz Jr. before getting knocked out in the seventh round.

Drake has been up in the faces of Warriors players throughout the series so far but today, Macauley Culkin, the star of the classic 1990 movie Home Alone, stole some of his thunder.

Drake was wearing a jumper with Culkin's face on it from the most famous scene of the movie with the "KEVIN?!?!?!" underneath.

He's referencing Kevin Durant, who hasn't been able to play in the NBA Finals so far with a partially torn calf muscle.

Today, Culkin saw the jumper, tweeting the rapper "Hey @Drake I'm right here, bro. DM me. See you at the BBQ."

It blew up with over 18,000 retweets and more than 100,000 likes.

Post match, Durant alongside Klay Thompson, who suffered an injury during game 2, was videoed taking a shot at Drake.

"We'll see you in the Bay Aubrey," Klay said as Drake left the court. "You weren't talking tonight were you? Bum a**."

Fans were enjoying the fight however, with the off-court battle overshadowing the on-court fight, and the Home Alone chat.

May the feud continue to kick on.

On court, the battle is heating up with game 3 set to return to Oakland.

Defending champion Golden State needed Andre Iguodala's clutch 3-pointer with seven seconds remaining Sunday to hold off Toronto 109-104 and lift the Warriors level in the NBA Finals.

Seeking a third consecutive title and fourth in five seasons, the Warriors knotted the best-of-seven series at 1-1 ahead of games three and four on Wednesday and Friday in California.

With former US President Barack Obama in the crowd, Golden State trailed by 12 points in the second quarter, made the first 18 points of the third and led by as much as 72-59.
