Kyle Lowry rallies Raptors to 2OT win, forces Game 7 vs. Celtics

For the first time since Kawhi Leonard’s bouncing miracle last year, the Toronto Raptors will play a Game 7. To get there, it took a game just as wild as that win over the Philadelphia 76ers so many months ago.

Trading haymaker after haymaker in two overtimes, the Raptors outlasted the Boston Celtics in Game 6 for a classic 125-122 win.

Throwing many of the Raptors’ punches was, who else, Kyle Lowry, who led all scorers with 33 points on 12-of-20 shooting (6-of-10 from deep), plus eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and just one turnover.

By next June, he was the NBA Rookie of the Year and by the February after, he was his team’s all-time leader in triple-doubles. Entering Saturday, he had averaged 24.7 points, 8.5 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game in his short career. It should not be controversial to say those are the numbers of a superstar, and that Doncic is already one of the 10 (maybe five?) best basketball players on Earth.

And yet, watching Doncic, it’s beginning to feel like we are only watching the first phase of a multistage rocket hurtling toward inner-circle Hall of Fame status. That was likely true before the NBA was put on forced hiatus, but it was never more evident than on Saturday against the team with the best record in basketball.
