WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 27: Kyle Lowry /

2. Kyle Lowry is fresh

A stat line of 24 points, six boards, six rebounds and a steal. Those are prime regular season Kyle Lowry numbers in the postseason. Lowry’s previous postseasons all had asterisks attached to them.

One year his elbow was the size of a tennis ball, one year he averaged the most minutes on the entire team and another year Lowry was fresh off wrist surgery.  This year he is posting his second-lowest amount of minutes per game and even had a bunch of rest days before playing John Wall and the Wizards.

Lowry didn’t crush the Wizards with massive totals, but his efficiency was felt like a steel knife. Lowry punched in 17.2 points ,4.8, rebounds and 8.3 assists on 43.6 percent from 3 and 60.6 percent true shooting.

It’s amazing what Lowry can do, when he doesn’t have to generate everything himself all season and postseason.
