  • With 30 seconds to go, the Raptors execute this high pick and roll and get the switch for Kawhi. Augustin defends this horribly, first he casually jogs with him before asking for help from the paint. And as Vucevic rotates to help, Augustin again doesn’t do his part of the assignment leaving Marc Gasol wide open in the corner.
    If this goes in, and Toronto wins, nobody talks about Lowry’s abysmal performance ending with 0 points.
    Thing is the shot just rims out, and moments later, that same DJ Augustin uses the miscommunication between Gasol and Leonard on the screen.
    Kawhi switches, but Marc is unaware and returns to his man, leaving a wide open look for the win.
    And as the Magic win, the Pandora’s box opens showing once again Kyle Lowry’s choking tendencies. And we’ll go deep into this. What up everybody my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
    Lowry went a combined 0 for 9 shooting the ball which is borderline impressive, considering the fact that almost all of his shots were completely wide open.
    And I need to mention Augustin here as well because this is some of the worst defense that I’ve seen. He looks like he doesn’t care.
    Lowry isn’t the greatest long range shooter at 34% but these are some of the best looks that he is going to get.
    And I understand that he can have an off night shooting, but my issue here with Kyle is the fact that he needs to switch it up and be more aggressive and try to go to the basket. Especially when again, the defender is not even touching you. Seriously I don’t know if Lowry’s offense or DJ’s defense is worse here. These highlights are crazy.
    In the 4th quarter alone, Kyle played 9 minutes and these are his numbers:
    This is absolutely not the behaviour of the franchise leading point guard.
    I made a video at the very beginning of the season, saying that these playoffs are going to be extremely important both for him as well as the entire franchise to convince Leonard to stay there.
    I said that Lowry needs to prove that he is someone that Kawhi can count on for help, when it matters in the playoffs.
    And for that reason alone, I was convinced that Kyle would come out as a pitbull in this first round and control everything from start to finish.
    Instead, we saw the good old quiet, passive and maybe even afraid player that we know from the previous seasons.
    Derozan used to share the spotlight with him when it came to this, but now those mental breakdowns are even more obvious.
    These have to be some of the most challenging moments for him, considering everything that’s at stake for the franchise in this year’s playoffs. Let’s see how he bounces back from it. I am still waiting for that pitbull to come out.

            Congratulations Mr. Lowry on your 2019 NBA Championship with the Toronto Raptors. The NBA is rife with household names that have never won a championship. You are not one of them. Good luck to you and your family and continued success.

                Lowry had 4 mistakes in the last minutes... nothing new
                1. Taking a timeout in a raptor's momentum
                2. Failing a 3 point shot
                3. Lose 1 posession
                4. And the most important... the game winner shot

                                                      It is only game 1, but Kyle has been known to ghost in the playoffs before, I hope this is a one off and he can get his shot together. Other than his shooting he was good but you can’t go scoreless in a playoff game.

Very very disappointed in him. He has to sit next game and coach has to start Vanvleet. If they start him again, I’m going to break my tv.
