Mercy, Mr. Lowry. Ersan Ilyasova and John Henson were as helpless as a one-legged man in an asskicking competition as a man nearly a full foot shorter pulled off some basketball wizardry that would even have His Airness nodding in approval.

In his last 10 games, Lowry has been averaging 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game to complement a .473 field goal percentage and an even better .484 from downtown. At 19-17, the Raptors are the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference and have won 8 out of their past 10, much in part, thanks to Lowry’s efforts.
