Behind Kyle Lowry’s eighth career triple-double Monday night, the Toronto Raptors beat up on the hapless New York Knicks 122-95.

The All-Star PG finished with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

Desperate and sad Knicks fans, meanwhile, fell in love with newcomer Jimmer Fredette.

Per the AP:

Lowry had 22 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for his first triple-double of the season, (DeMar) DeRozan also scored 22 while becoming the winningest player in Raptors history, and Toronto beat New York 122-95 on Monday night.

 

Lowry said Toronto’s win and DeRozan’s achievement were more important, but thanked his teammates for letting him know late in the game that he needed one more rebound for a triple-double — helping him get it. […] “It’s crazy how much these guys really support me and I support them and we just support each other. So I mean, it makes our jobs a lot easier when you have that friendship and that camaraderie,” Lowry said.

 

DeRozan passed Chris Bosh and Morris Peterson with his 233rd win in six-plus years wearing a Raptors uniform. […] “It sounds good saying it, honestly,” DeRozan said. “I mean, it’s an honor for me, man. I’ve been here, it felt like since the beginning, and just to have that, that’s big.”
