Kyle Lowry scored 10 points (4-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes during Friday's loss to the Pacers in Game 6 of their first round series.
He and DeMar DeRozan combined for just 18 points, forcing the series back to Toronto for Game 7 on Sunday where the ghosts of the team's past playoff failures will be lurking. Lowry is averaging 14.3 points, 7.3 assists, 4.2 boards, 1.3 steals and 1.2 threes through six games, but he may need to step up his production if the Toronto Raptors are going to advance to the second round.
DeMarre Carroll scored 15 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding four rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Friday's loss to the Pacers in Game 6 of their first round playoff series.
He's been a strong complementary option on offense for the Toronto Raptors in the series, averaging 12.3 points in the last four games, but when Carroll is leading the team in scoring you know something's gone wrong. Expect him to leave everything he has on the court Sunday for Game 7 back in Toronto.
Luis Scola (coach's decision) didn't play in Tuesday's 102-99 Game 5 win over the Pacers.
Coach Dwane Casey dropped Scola from the starting lineup for the first time in the series in favor of Patrick Patterson, and then didn't turn to Scola off the bench even when the Toronto Raptors closed the first quarter trailing by 15 points. Instead, Casey stuck with a nine-man rotation that led a furious comeback in the fourth quarter, an arrangement he could choose to stick with in Game 6. If that's the case, expect Scola to remain out of the mix unless the game devolves into a blowout.
Though he struggled to do much offensively, Powell was still effective during his time on the court, as the Raptors were plus-16 when he was on the floor. During the epic fourth quarter turnaround, Powell ignited the Air Canada Centre crowd by stealing a pass directed to the Pacers' Paul George and racing down the court for a huge highlight jam. Powell's defensive pressure helped key the Raptors' comeback, and the rookie continues to impress in whatever role coach Dwane Casey asks him to play.
Biyombo was excellent while Jonas Valanciunas had his worst game of the series, so coach Dwane Casey turned to his backup center to play half the contest. Although he doesn't offer much offensively, Biyombo was able to make all four of his free throws, and provided the defensive effort needed to turn the tide in Game 5. If Valanciunas gets into foul trouble or has another off night in Friday's Game 6, expect Casey to call on Biyombo once again.
