If Kyle Lowry had his way, he would have just returned to Toronto after playing two games against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Of course, with the Toronto Raptors dropping a 104-103 decision to the Brooklyn Nets in Game 7 last Sunday, Lowry’s summer has started a bit earlier than he had hoped. The point guard hasn’t totally clocked out for vacation yet, though.
The self-described basketball junkie made time to join the NBA TV Gametime crew on Thursday night. When Lowry isn’t playing basketball, he’s watching it, so he was a natural choice to join the panel.
Decked out in suit and tie, Lowry provided game analysis and also talked with Dennis Scott about Friday’s Game 3 matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder. Turning in a career-best season, Lowry proved he is an elite point guard. After facing off against the best at his position all year, he had plenty to say about the difficult task of slowing either Paul or Westbrook in this series.
During the broadcast, Patrick Patterson couldn’t resist teasing his teammate via social media:
