Lowry was shoved by Warriors minority owner Mark Stevens after he crashed into some courtside fans to prevent the ball from going out of bounds. The All-Star guard then complained to the officials, who responded by ejecting the businessman from the game.
After Toronto’s 123-109 win in Game 3, Lowry said that Stevens should be banned from NBA games for good.
Stephen Curry is not the only one who praised Lowry for how he handled the situation. A lot of fans gave him a lot of credit for not responding negatively to the incident. Some players would have reacted by shoving Stevens back, or even worse, but Kyle Lowry kept his cool and maintained his focus on winning the game.
The NBA suspended Stevens indefinitely from attending NBA games while conducting its investigation. In addition, the Warriors banned him from attending any team-related activities.
Lowry scored 23 points and dished out nine assists in Game 3, which is probably the reason why Stevens was upset about him.
The Raptors will try to take a commanding 3-1 series lead when they play the Warriors in Game 4 on Friday. If that happens, they could finish the series in Toronto in Game 5.
