"Big Business, Baby!" Bismack Biyombo's block on Aron Baynes impresses Drake

Bismack Biyombo has been an important addition to the Raptors bench this season. He's a rim protector that can bring that needed defensive presence with the second unit. As the Raptors held off the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night for their 11th straight victory, Biyombo put up an impressive double double with 12 points and 13 rebounds in 21 minutes. Biyombo also put up three blocks that included this one on the Pistons Aron Baynes. It was so emphatic, that it caught the attention of Drake while he was on the Raptors broadcast.
