No thoughts on the game from Joe or myself but if you feel like mourning yet ANOTHER heartbreaking loss, here is Kyrie’s game -winner…
I thought Alan Anderson was the correct choice to be guarding Irving since Lowry wasn’t on the floor, but once the game clock reached 5 seconds, Anderson should have realized Irving wasn’t driving and closed the gap between them. It was an absurdly long game-winner but Kyrie has that kind of range on his jumper.
The Raptors have now lost 12 games this season which they were leading at some point in the 4th quarter….Ech.
This might explain why Lowry was substituted out of the game with about 4 minutes to go…
Casey confirmed Lowry’s back tightened up.
