The Raptors dropped a disappointing decision to the Mavs despite the best efforts of Kyle Lowry, who picked up 23 points, eight rebounds, six assists, four triples and a steal on Tuesday.
Lowry, as is custom, also led the Raptors with a plus-minus of plus-16. While he’s been taking on more of a quiet role this season in Toronto’s new offense he remains the straw that stirs the drink and kept this one close on a night where so many of the Raptors’ reliable forces went dormant. While the scoring will take a slight hit from last year, Lowry should pretty comfortably finish inside the top-30 yet again.
