Line of the Weekend

Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors): 23 PTS (8-15 FG), 3 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL vs. Washington

Sure the Raps blew a huge fourth-quarter lead for the second night in a row Saturday, but it was their All-Star starter from Villanova that led them to victory in overtime. Seven of Lowry's 23 points came in the extra 5 minutes against the Wizards, tightly holding onto second place in the Eastern Conference. Greg Monroe went 19 and 12 against the Rockets, further embarrassing former teammate and basketball succubus Josh Smith.
