Lowry’s body of work hard to beat in Raptors history | The Star
Now, let’s get this right: We’re not talking about the greatest player to ever wear a Toronto uniform. Peak Leonard, who arrived in town last fall and laid down an MVP-worthy season if not for the 22 games off for precautionary rest, is hard to beat; his Game 7 buzzer-beater is the greatest single act in franchise history by a mile. And peak Vinsanity, wherein Carter put up the second-best Player Efficiency Rating in the NBA behind Shaquille O’Neal in 2000-01, was awfully impressive, too. Bosh was a five-time all-star as a Raptor, but he never won a playoff series before he bolted for Miami.

But as for compiling a career body of work while based in Toronto — if Lowry winds up in an NBA final, it’ll be difficult to make a case his isn’t the heftiest on record.

Wednesday’s heroics certainly bolstered the case. His 30 points came on 7-for-9 shooting from three-point range and a mere 15 shots all told. He played 40 minutes at age 33 and suddenly looked like a younger version of himself. Sadly for the club, he was the only player on the visiting roster to score a field goal in Toronto’s dim fourth quarter.

Now the question is this: After Lowry’s teammates squandered his incredible effort — Raptors not named Lowry combined to shoot a pathetic 8-for-33 from three-point range — what are the odds the Raptors find a way to get past the Bucks? Milwaukee didn’t exactly bring its A game, either, on Wednesday; they shot just 25 per cent from three-point range, well below average for a team that bases its offence on the three-ball.

And it’s become apparent that there are plenty of key pieces in Raptorland who, like Lowry, no longer possess the gift of young legs.

“The season’s a gruelling season,” Lowry told reporters in Milwaukee on Thursday. “We get paid a lot of money to do this, we get paid to prepare ourselves for these types of moments and we get paid to prepare to be ready and to play the best we can no matter what. But that being said, there are a lot of minutes out there that we’re playing. There is some fatigue.”
