2. All-time Raptors triple-double leader.
At some point in the future, there has to be a statue of Lowry. His No. 7 jersey will one day hang from the rafters of Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The triple-double record is just one more feather in his cap.
While we are not talking about Russell Westbrook averages for several seasons, triple-doubles are significantly hard to achieve. A player must be well-rounded and play at a high level to accomplish one, let alone several.
He has 18 career triple-doubles all regular season, and 13 of them are on the road. He has 16 triple-doubles as a Raptor, more than Carter, Chris Bosh, or any other Raptor. Second place is Damon Stoudamire, who has…three.
It’s an impressive stat but a testament to how much impact and influence he has in games. Lowry makes good decisions with the ball but is a scrappy, tough player who plays like he’s 6-9 and challenges for every loose ball.
In one of his triple-double efforts from 2018 against Atlanta, Lowry scored 21 points, handed out 17 assists, and hauled in 12 rebounds, two offensive. He has always had this ability to track the ball wherever it is and a desire to want it more than any player on the court.
You cannot teach size, but he more than compensates with desire and determination.
