Although Lowry hasn’t played a full game once this season, he did play 47 minutes twice. One of those contests was Game 2 of this series; both were overtime affairs.
The Raptors may just need him to play the full game as Lowry’s minutes are invaluable to Toronto. Per NBA.com, the Raptors playoff differential per 100 possessions is positive 4.3 when he’s in the game, but an exorbitant negative 32.3 when on he’s the bench.
After struggling with his shot throughout the playoffs, it’s a good sign for the Raptors that their leader is confident and ready to step up in a potential series-ending game.
