Raptors star Kyle Lowry has heated exchange with heckler after Toronto’s loss to Sixers
After their frustrating loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry had a heated exchange with a heckler. Lowry was so tense that he told the heckler where he lived so they can have a go at it.
Per Marcus Hayes of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Lowry — a Philadelphia native — yellowed out his address seven times.

In his post-game interview, Lowry was asked if he’s surprised that he’s getting some hate even in his hometown. Lowry, however, emphasized he was not shocked at all and claimed that he loves the tension between players and fans, especially from Philly fans.
I asked @Klow7 about the #Sixers fan that heckled him after the game. The #Raptors PG didn’t back down, telling him, “Come see me! … I live at 20th and Lehigh. Come see me!” pic.twitter.com/aGiYdkZ7Fi

In the 110-104 loss, Lowry finished with 26 points, six rebounds and five assists. This is the Raptors’ third straight loss, which brings their record to 15-7 for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Prior to dropping three straight, the Raptors were on a seven-game winning streak which served as an exclamation point that they are still the defending champions.
As such, the Raptors need to head back to the drawing board, figure things out, and regain their championship mettle — the most valuable thing that sets them apart from all the other teams.
