Kyle Lowry put up 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting with four rebounds and five assists before fouling out in the fourth quarter in a Game 3 win over the Bucks on Sunday.
The Raptors brought the series within one game and Lowry's solid play in regulation helped them pull out the win. Fred VanVleet, who had three points on 1-of-11 shooting, filled in for Lowry in the overtimes and ultimately played well enough for the Raptors to win. Although Lowry receives extensive criticism for his lackluster playoff performances, he is an integral part of the Raptors' team success.

Kyle Lowry came back down to earth after his Game 1 eruption as he put up 15 points on 4-of-13 shooting in Friday's blowout loss to the Bucks in Game 2.
Lowry scored 30 points on great shooting numbers in Game 1, but he could not get his shots to fall from anywhere in Game 2 as he shot 2-of-9 from beyond the arc and 5-of-8 from the line. The Raptors will head home for Game 3 as they look to win their first game of the series and bring it within reach.

Kyle Lowry went off for 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting from the field and 7-of-9 shooting from 3-point range in a 108-100 loss to the Bucks in Game 1 on Wednesday.
Lowry has not played well in the postseason thus far, but he stepped up in the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals. He added eight rebounds, two assists and one steal to the box score. The Raptors will need consistent good games from Lowry if they want to win this series, but even this stellar performance was not enough to give them a 1-0 series lead.

Kyle Lowry (left thumb) was spotted wearing a mitt on his left hand but says that his injury won't affect him in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Lowry had his thumb pop out during Game 7 against the Sixers but was able to return and deliver an impactful game, so we'll take him at his word. Apparently the mitt is supposed to help with circulation. The Raptors will need Lowry to be at his best in a showdown with the Bucks.

Kyle Lowry posted 10 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Sunday's Game 7 victory.
Lowry shot just 4-of-13 from the field but he had his fingerprints all over the game. He made a number of great defensive plays throughout and grabbed two huge offensive rebounds that ultimately resulted in a Kawhi Leonard 3-pointer in the fourth quarter. Lowry also left the game briefly after spraining his left thumb and was reportedly dealing with a right hand issue as well, though it obviously didn't affect his play as the game went on.

Kyle Lowry (sprained thumb) has returned to the game for Sunday's Game 7 vs. the Sixers.
It looks like he went to the locker room to get his finger taped up and is good to go. It's a do-or-die game so it's not surprising that Lowry will be gutting this one out.

Kyle Lowry hurt his hand in Sunday's game vs. the Sixers and returned to the locker room.
Lowry, despite having some quiet lines in the postseason has been a key piece on the plus-minus column for the Raptors. Hopefully, it's nothing serious and he'll be able to return.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Game 6 against the Sixers on Thursday Kyle Lowry said, "We have big things that we want to achieve. One of them is getting to the next round. When you have an opportunity you've gotta throw it all out there because you never know when it'll come back again. That's why we're gonna play desperate because we know nothing's promised."
The Raptors traded for a potential one-year rental of Kawhi Leonard in part because of the team's previous failures in the playoffs the past few seasons. Lowry has received a lot of criticism for his playoff shortcomings and knows how vital closing out the Sixers is. Lowry and the Raptors are on the road for Game 6.

Kyle Lowry got going on offense in Tuesday's Game 5 with 19 points on 5-of-9 shooting while adding six rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.
All the playoff Lowry jokes can be cast aside for a game as he brought it on offense tonight. When he plays well, the Raptors' ceiling raises exponentially. If he can be a consistent threat on offense it gives the Raptors even more dimensions to score the ball which is a scary thought for other teams considering Kawhi Leonard has been putting up historically great numbers on offense throughout these playoffs.

Kyle Lowry, who pledged to be more aggressive after Game 3, put up 14 points, six rebounds, seven assists and two triples in 41 minutes.
Lowry had seven of his points in the first quarter and was decisive with his drives and jumpers to get the team off on the right foot. He was also in the mix as usual, jawing with James Ennis and generally getting into Philadelphia's kitchen. Lowry's been able to help the Raptors even when his shot isn't there, but there's undoubtedly a huge effect on the team's psyche when he can go get a bucket on any given possession.

Kyle Lowry was hard to watch on Thursday night with seven points (2-of-10 from the field), five rebounds and five assists as the Sixers coasted to a 116-95 win in Game 3.
Well this is not what the doctor ordered for the Raptors. Lowry is the main cog that needs to step up and be at least the third option for this squad. Seven points just won't get the job done against this high-powered Sixers squad.

Kyle Lowry had a nice game with 20 points (7-of-17 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), five rebounds, five assists, one steal and two threes in Monday's loss to the Sixers.
Lowry was out there for 42 minutes tonight and he looked good during a fourth quarter comeback attempt aside from an ill-conceived attempt to dribble through the defender's legs with the game on the line. Lowry will have another shot at turning around his poor playoff reputation in Thursday's Game 3 in Philadelphia.

Kyle Lowry shot 4-for-10 from the floor for nine points with three boards, eight assists, one steal and a block in 38 minutes to beat the Sixers on Saturday.
Lowry's presence in Game 1 was more felt on the defensive end wherein there were multiple instances that he baited Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris into offensive fouls, thinking that they can just bully him down low. He's been more of a facilitator so far in this year's playoffs and has been silently elevating the play of Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam.

Kyle Lowry suffered a dislocated finger on his right hand in the first half of Tuesday's Game 5 but was able to pop it back in and return to the game.
Lowry swiped at the ball and ended up hitting Evan Fournier's leg with his hand, which caused the injury The fact that he was able to return to the game, even in a blowout, bodes well for his status for the second round. It may affect his shooting to some degree but Lowry has been playing facilitator more often anyway, and we wouldn't expect his performance to suffer. After a scoreless Game 1, Lowry was all over the floor for the Raptors as they locked in and simply outclassed Orlando.

Kyle Lowry shot 6-for-10 from the floor for 14 points with four boards, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes to put away the Magic on Tuesday.
Lowry had an extremely up-and-down series. Tuesday was a bit of a down game, but he didn't have to do much as the Raptors jumped out to a 20-point lead by halftime. Lowry did leave the first half early after hurting a finger on his right hand, so that could be something to monitor moving forward. The Raptors should get ample rest ahead of the second round.
