Opponent: Boston Celtics

Stat line: 30 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals

Another game and another great Kyle Lowry performance. That seems to be the norm for this week as Lowry has been red hot over his past few games. Consistently turning in 30-point performances, this game was no different as the Raptors were looking for revenge after an embarrassing Christmas loss to the Celtics.

Unlike the two games prior to this one, the Raptors actually got off to a very strong start. Led by Kyle Lowry’s 11 points and three assists in the first quarter, the Raptors were able to jump to an early 11 point lead heading into the second quarter. However, the Celtics were not ready to give up just yet as they rallied in the second quarter to trim the lead to five points as Lowry was only able to score three points to go along with one assist.

Toronto regained control in the third though as the team was able to step up despite another quiet quarter from Lowry. He finished the third with five points and one assist as the Raptors grew their lead to 10 points heading into the fourth. After two straight low scoring quarters, Lowry turned it up in the fourth and made the game unreachable for the Celtics as Lowry finished the final frame with 11 points and three assists as the Raptors got their revenge with a 16 point win.

Lowry has been a man on a mission this week. While the team has not won every game, Lowry continues to prove to the world that he deserves to be an All-Star yet again. It would almost be a shock to not see his name on the roster this year with the way he has been performing.
