Kyle Lowry (left ankle sprain) looked no worse for wear in Sunday's loss, dropping 17 points (5-for-12 FG), six rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 35 minutes of action.
It was Lowry's first game since injuring his ankle last Sunday and he was easily Toronto's best player in a disappointing performance. He was an uncharacteristic 6-of-9 at the free throw line (the Raptors went 22-of-29 as a whole) but was the only member of the starters who finished better than minus-18 (he was minus-5) as the Celtics led wire-to-wire. Serge Ibaka (15 & 9 with three triples) and OG Anunoby (12 points, seven rebounds, two blocks and a 3-pointer) were the only other Raptors to really show up in this one.
