Raptors’ Kyle Lowry Discusses Slow Start To Season

Published

on

Toronto Raptors star Kyle Lowry has seen a sip in his production to start the 2017-2018 NBA regular season.

But Lowry is insisting that the lull in his performance is based on the new offensive system that Toronto has in place for this year.

“I think the way we’re moving the ball, the ball’s not in my hands as much,” Lowry said, according to TSN’s Josh Lewenberg .

“Last couple of years, coach would give me the game for the first five, six, seven minutes of the game. I could feel out the game and get passes off and get everyone involved, and now it’s like everyone has to be involved from the jump.”

The Raptors have stressed more versatility and have relied a bit less on Lowry to carry them in games.

Lowry’s production has suffered as a result as he is starting the season averaging 11.9 points per game opposed to a 22.4 points per game average during the 2016-17 campaign
