Toronto is still keeping pressure on the Cleveland Cavaliers, as the Raptors are trailing closely behind the defending NBA Champions in the Eastern Conference. The success could be attributed to Kyle Lowry, 24, who has been developing into a team leader, especially to Lucas Nogueira, 25. During the Raptor’s Nov. 25 game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Kyle came to Lucas’s side to help him keep his head in the game.
“I was kinda down during the whole game, for some reasons outside the court,” Lucas told the TheStar.com. “That game was my fourth or fifth game they call me three or four fouls in a row, so this is the reason I was very frustrated. So when I blocked those two in a row, he come and grab me and say, ‘You’re doing well.’”
“This is the reason, people ask me, ‘Who is the leader?’ I say ‘Kyle’ because he’s a great leader, and when he saw me down, he came and grabbed me and said ‘Let’s go, let’s go,’ ” Nogueira added. Perhaps after this game, Kylie can give the Lakers a pep talk?
The L.A. team has been hot-and-cold, pulling off unexpected victories over such heavyweights like the Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Falcons before getting blown out by teams like the New Orleans Pelicans. The Pelicans! That 105-88 loss stung, but not as bad as the 149-106 loss to Golden State on Nov. 23. Ouch! So, the question for L.A. fans ahead of this game: which Lakers team will show up tonight?
