Kyle Lowry predictably ran the show with DeMar DeRozan resting, scoring 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting to go with five rebounds, eight assists and seven 3-pointers in Tuesday’s win over the Magic.
Lowry had complete control of the offense tonight and his ability pull all the strings was evident — it’s a stark contrast to his role in the team’s modernized offense, but it was still nice to see Lowry grab the bull by the horns. He kept the team afloat early with his threes and buried a dagger in the fourth as the Raptors sleepwalked through this victory. He’s a rest candidate with the team on a B2B but we’d bet he plays against the Cavs in a national TV game.
