That was a game to remember. Kyle Lowry at his very best doing what he has done so many times for our team, possibly for the last time. A skilled and savvy bulldog imposing his will under the bright lights and against the best players. So what if it was also a little showtime showcase for him for next year. He deserves whatever he gets and more power to him. That Lakers team sure does need him and Lebron knows it. What an enjoyable stomp.

i liked this tidbit from candace parker in the post game show about toronto this season:
Culture is what you build, not necessarily in the results, it's how you handle yourself every single day

Pretty easily. Kyle was on fire. Pascal was on fire. They tried hard at the end to stop us from getting two 40 point games.

At this point in the season, there is no such thing as “the best game of the year” as they are all meaningless. This team can’t tank right, this team can’t contend either. Just a really dis interested position to be in. You sleeping was the best move you could make.

I don't know man, always nice to see the GROAT have a vintage game. Also good to see Pascal shine against the league's best defense.

But I ran a marathon yesterday, so my body certainly needed the rest. 8-)

Just took in the highlights. They hit some huge shots. Pascal's step back three against a totally deflated Lakers team gives me life.

Siakam always has ADs number. It's the strangest thing. Also, AD seems pretty soft.

AD is one of the leagues softest bigs

Only the second game I missed live all season. Damn. Yeah just watched the raps in 30, 2 different times Davis holding his mouth like a baby after Pascal score on him. So soft. Imagine him playing against the bad boys or the Ewing Oakley Mason Knicks

Kyle has played just over 600 games for the raptors. Think of how many of those games have been W's? He's had an incredible run with us. Has to go down as one of the most cherished athletes in the history of the city.

Indeed it is.

Haven't had a pup in a while, but I've fostered plenty of dogs. The experience is similar. A lot sleepless nights!

Siakam is great when he's being set up. He struggles to create for himself.

In regards to Fred, look at all our lineup data with Kyle out and Fred in. Our offense collapses.


Fred without Kyle (110.6)
Kyle without Fred (108.5)

But more importantly the Fred without Kyle line-ups are a slight net positive, the Kyle without Fred line-ups are blowout level bad.

Unfortunately there's no real data points for a potential Birch, Siakam, OG, Trent, FVV line-up yet that could start next year if Kyle leaves. I'm not sure what line-up data you're talking about.

Congrats on the marathon man! Certainly a valid reason to call it an early night and miss a late game.

I don’t know if there was a more impressive Kyle regular season game than this one in his career - this performance was THAT good. As others have said, he imposed his will in all facets of what he’s capable of, and the timeliness of his big shots to stop Lakers’ mini-runs were demoralizing for them too. Try to catch a full replay if you can! This was a Kyle masterpiece. Pascal was exceptional too. May not have showed on the scoresheet, but the other guys worked their butts off this game too particularly on defence. I’m sure the whole team fed big time off of Kyle’s leadership and sheer determination to win.

Thanks! Perhaps I’ll watch the full game on my HeHe streams before work.

I missed this team putting other teams in shambles. I think we've had more players-only meetings this season than we've caused.
