Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry is probably smaller than his listed height of 6’0” which is why he’s often been a target of opponents looking to take advantage of mismatch opportunities. What most of these opportunistic players probably don’t know, however, is that Lowry is one of the best when it comes to drawing offensive foul calls.

As a testament to that, Lowry currently leads the NBA in charges drawn with 17, per NBA Stats. That’s seven more than any other player in the league. As of this writing, Lowry has elicited more charging calls from opponents than 12 other teams. The Portland Trail Blazers have the least with just five to date.

Referees have a tendency to give smaller players the benefit of the doubt when deciding to call fouls or not, and that, along with Kyle Lowry’s ability to time offensive attacks and set his feet quick enough on defense, has made the 31-year-old Raptors guard quite the inducer of offensive fouls.

If you’re wondering why the Raptors are in the upper half of the league in terms of points allowed per game, Lowry’s penchant for drawing charging calls is one reason for that.

As for his overall play, Lowry is averaging 16.6 points, 7.1 assists, and 6.3 rebounds per game this season.
