Kawhi Leonard

Kyle Lowry plays his best game of the season, but it wasn't enough

With Kawhi Leonard out once again due to load management, the Raptors would look to the 32-year-old point guard for an offensive spark.

The many Raptors fans in attendance didn’t make Toronto’s clash in Detroit feel like a road contest.

With Toronto down five points and less than two minutes remaining on the clock in the fourth quarter, he hit yet another three and a driving layup after that to get the Raptors back within two.

Solid free throw shooting from Marc Gasol and a clutch tip shot by OG Anunoby with less than 30 seconds remaining pushed the game to overtime.

(Who can forget Casey’s priceless reaction following Detroit’s late basket to win their previous meeting in November?)

Toronto’s loss drops them to 46-18 and, as a result, they don’t gain any ground of the Eastern Conference-leading Milwaukee Bucks who fell to the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
