The Raptors and Pacers are tied 2-2 in their first round NBA playoff series. Raptors guards Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan haven’t been at their best, to put it lightly. Looking at this as Glass Half Full, things can only get better — right? We’ll see. Here’s the Toronto Sun reporting:
Kyle Lowry can tell you to the third decimal what he is shooting in the playoffs.
And even if he’s not happy about that particular number he is not at liberty to grouse about it or let it affect him.
“I’d be lying to you if I said I’m not upset at how I’m playing,” Lowry said. “But I’ve got to be positive. At the end of the day my teammates bank on me to be positive and lead these guys, and that’s what I’m going to do no matter how I’m shooting the ball, I’ve got to make sure my teammates are positive and confident.”
And on that front he has been for the most part successful.
DeRozan and Lowry both know they need to shoot the ball better but getting frustrated over it is not something either will allow himself.
“No, not at all. I’m not frustrated,” DeRozan said Sunday following practice.
