The Scoop:This was a scheduled rest day for the Raptors stars, and there's nothing to see here. Lowry is set to have another big season for the Raptors and makes for a solid early-round selection, while DeMar DeRozan is a nice mid-round target for owners seeking some scoring.
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.
