Kyle Lowry played just nine minutes and hit 3-of-5 shots for seven points, three rebounds, no assists and a 3-pointer.
The Scoop:No worries here. He's not injured and simply got a light night of action. He iced his knees on the bench, but unless you hear of an injury later, it's all systems go for another big season from Lowry.
The Scoop:Nothing should be read into this as head coach Dwane Casey is just giving his star point guard some rest before the regular season. Health is always a concern for Lowry, however, he was able to suit up for 79 games last season while averaging career-highs in points (17.9), assists (7.4), and 3-pointers (2.4). He makes for a solid early-round selection in standard leagues.
TORONTO (AP) -- Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan each scored 18 points, Patrick Patterson had 17 and the Toronto Raptors beat Boston 116-109 on Friday, handing the Celtics their first defeat in three preseason games.
Kyle Lowry scored 25 points and DeMar DeRozan added 23 points in the Raptors' preseason loss in Sacramento on Tuesday.
The Scoop:The pair combined to shoot 18-of-29 from the field with seven 3-pointers, five of which came from Lowry, who added six assists and one turnover. DeRozan was the Raptors' lone All-Star last season, but they're an underrated threat in the Atlantic Division.
