Kyle Lowry (back pain) returned to the lineup in Sunday's 121-105 win over the Pacers and looked like his usual self, finishing with 12 points, three rebounds, eight assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes of action.
For those of you worried about lingering issues, Lowry drew two charges in the first half and was uncorking deep triples without hesitation. He's clearly going to go at full tilt whenever he's on the floor, and while he was spotted sitting on an extra cushion whenever he hit the bench it looks like he'll be able to play through the pain going forward. Lowry's return simply lifted the entire roster as Toronto's ball movement was superb throughout, and he even dug in for some great defensive possessions against larger players in the post and some hustle steals when the Pacers were putting a little charge together in the third quarter. Needless to say, Lowry belongs in all lineups again.
