Kyle Lowry carried the Toronto Raptors to a 123-114 win over the Los Angeles Lakers to usher in 2017. He was on fire, scoring 41 points by hitting 12-of-16 shots from the field, 6-of-7 shots from deep, and a perfect 11-of-11 from the line.
Lowry welcomed 2017 with a bang, adding nine boards and seven assists to his line for the night. Many people were not high on him repeating his 2015-16 performance. So far, Lowry has managed to remain a force in fantasy and is showing no signs of slowing down in 2017. He’s returning first-round value in 9-cat and crushing it for teams that took a “gamble” on him in the second or third rounds of drafts.
