Raptors guard Kyle Lowry had a big night against the Indiana Pacers Monday, leading Toronto to a 117-98 road victory.
Lowry registered the seventh triple-double of his career, finishing with 20 points, 11 rebounds and ten assists.
Lowry also had three steals, while rocking a headband for the first time this season.
Per the AP:
“When things are not going so fun, you have got to find some things to make it fun again,” DeMar DeRozan said. “We can’t be too uptight or too down. We still have to have fun with it and I think Lou (Williams) and Kyle showed that tonight. Just something small like that carries over into the game.”
Toronto won for only the third time in 13 games, but finally earned its 40th in fewer than 70 games for the first time in franchise history. It also pulled off a season sweep of the Pacers, something last done in 2000-01.
He went 7 of 13 from the field, matched his season high in rebounds and became the first Toronto player since Alvin Williams to post consecutive 100-steal seasons. Williams did it three times from 2000-03. […] “The headband is done, don’t worry about it again,” Lowry said, drawing laughter.
