Lowry totaled 30 points (10-15 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and a steal over 40 minutes in the Raptors' loss to the Bucks on Wednesday. Lowry caught fire in this one, draining seven three-pointers on his way to a 30-point outing. With most of the Raptors' squad struggling to get a bucket, it was Lowry who hit some big shots in the fourth quarter to keep Toronto in the game before Milwaukee went on a late run to seal the win. Lowry has a history of inconsistent playoff performances, but he is capable of big games like this on any given night.
Lowry, who dislocated his right thumb during Game 7 against the 76ers, said he's had some trouble gripping the ball, but that he'll be fine for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Bucks, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports. Lowry insisted that he'll play and be fine for Game 1, but his issues gripping the ball are noteworthy. Lowry shot just 40.2 percent from the field and 25.6 percent from three in the series against Philly, and another poor shooting effort against a stronger team could make things difficult for the Raptors.
Lowry contributed 10 points (4-13 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 39 minutes during Friday's 92-90 victory over the 76ers. Lowry put up solid enough production Sunday but it was his impact away from the stat sheet that speaks volumes. He provides a consistent defensive presence and currently leads the playoffs in charges taken. The Raptors are now headed for the Conference Finals, a position that certainly validates some of the offseason moves. Lowry will be looking to find some rhythm on the offensive end, so as to provide support to the likes of Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam who both continue to carry the team offensively.
Lowry accumulated 19 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 125-89 Game 5 win over the 76ers. Lowry turned in a complete stat line, contributing across every category while amassing over twice as many points as field goal attempts. This is the first time through five second round games that Lowry has made more than 46.2 percent of his field goal attempts. Nevertheless, Lowry has been consistently compiling plenty of counting stats and will look to help his team close out the series during Thursday's Game 6.
Lowry totaled seven points (2-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal over 38 minutes in the Raptors' loss to the 76ers on Thursday. Lowry had a disappearing act on Thursday, registering just seven points on 20.0 percent shooting from the floor. Unfortunately, streaky performances and coming up small in playoff games has become Lowry's reputation. He's a volatile option in daily lineups.
