Video: Raptors’ Kyle Lowry flops twice on a PJ Tucker arm swing and gets the call
Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry certainly deserves an Oscar after this play.
With the Raptors down 50-61 at the 2:47 mark of the second quarter in their match-up against the Houston Rockets on Thursday, Lowry pulled off some extracurriculars to make sure his team got an extra possession.
Lowry was initially deceived by a PJ Tucker pump fake and made slight contact with the Rockets forward. Tucker did extend his right arm which slightly grazed Lowry’s head, but the five-time All-Star made sure to sell the call by flopping twice.

His acting job certainly got the referee’s attention, as Tucker was called for an offensive foul, much to the chagrin of Tucker’s teammate James Harden.
This is Lowry’s third game back after missing 11 games due to a thumb injury. He has already been fined for flopping this season, and the league will certainly take a closer look at the incident after the game.
