On another note I feel like every year there is a Kyle Lowry question mark.

Dude is getting older and having games with 0 points.

When are the Raptors gonna wake up? I don't even call his slumps a slump really as theyre putting it. IMO that's who he is.

I thought to start the season Lowry was playing the best basketball of his career. But his past few weeks have been down, like way down. 0 points the other night like you mentioned and just a handful of other really low impact games.

He played and shot well again tonight, and they got another big win without Kawhi Leonard which makes them like 6-1 I think this season in games he doesnít play.

I think part of his problem is they just donít have a good balance of dividing up the usage between he and Kawhi. And they had the same issues with DeRozan at times. Most nights you canít really just ask Lowry to stand around and only shoot on a few kick outs. Got to find ways to keep him involved especially with his playmaking this season. The scoreless game against Milwaukee the only shots he took were 5 threes, and the ball wasnít really in his hands enough in the half court.

That's nice OJ but this happens every year.

They can't possibly expect to win anything with such instability at the point

He's such a low impact star/all star

He gets the ball for the game winner and kicks it out to freaking Fred van vleet.

Re: 12/11 - 12/17 Games Discussion Thread

Has this been going on for a few games or a few weeks?

If itís the former, then Iím not concerned/worried about it at all. If itís the latter, then Iíd be 5% concerned about it and the only reason why I would have it that low is because Iím not judging their play/performances on what theyíre doing now anyway.

Ntilikina had 18 points in 20 min last game and 16/3/4 in 24 min tonight. Playing with a bit of confidence for the first time in his career. And the Knicks lost to CLE, giving NYK a victory in one of the year's marquee tank battles.

Great games from Din and Crabbe tonight.

Nets starting to bounce back after that 8 game losing streak.

Wiz-Celtics having another fun thriller in DC. Wall and Kyrie going at it, lol.
