    think Casey intended to pull Lowry eventually, but Philly caught fire so it just happened Lowry stayed out there. I wouldn't read too much into it more than that.
    It's also Lowry's hometown and he had like 50 people in the stands. There was a moment on the TV coverage in the 4th, when I think they were up about 15 or so, with Casey and Lowry chatting during a timeout, maybe about whether it was time to sit down or not? Wondering if Lowry wanted to stay in to give his people a show. The shimmy after the mostly meaningless late 3 seems to suggest he had a little more at stake playing at home than he might usually have.

        He goes there twice a year, every year. I think that's a bit of a reach. He kept a defensive lineup in because casey doesn't relax ever

            As mentioned earlier in the game thread, last night was also Kyle's mom's birthday, and the 55 tickets that he had for the game was higher than normal - could well mean that the coincidence of events meant that there were relatives in town that normally don't get to see Kyle play when the Raptors visit Philly.

                    Short term rest? This Wednesday game was their second game in five nights. And it's easy, regional travel (Toronto to Boston, Boston to Philly). And they don't play again until tomorrow. This is actually a part of the schedule where players can afford to play some more minutes without too much harm.

                    I think Casey intended to pull Lowry eventually, but Philly caught fire so it just happened Lowry stayed out there. I wouldn't read too much into it more than that.
                    When is eventually? With 5 minutes left the Raps had an 18 point lead and Lowry had played 31 minutes. If you don't take him out then, when do you? He really should have been sitting to start the quarter, but there's no excuse for him to be still in the game with half the quarter gone and the same blowout score on the scoreboard.

                      Dwane casey doesn't strike me as a "hit me right in the feels" kinda coach. I personally would be very dissapointed if they played kyle for his mom and bros..a kyle lowry long term injury ends our season on the spot.

                          Some players just sub themselves into games. Though I don't think Kyle would do anything to that degree, I imagine if he requested Casey to play him most of the quarter Casey would acquiesce. Like someone mentioned, he did appear to be going full throttle.

                            But what happened to YOU? And those that love YOU?

                            At the risk of sounding insensitive, I could give a fuck about David Bowie, he sure as hell didn't give two shits about me or mine. As far as wars and bombings and people bringing terror, well, world peace is a nice thought, but spoiler alert: it won't be coming in 2017.

                            I dunno...I'm seeing this common thread on social media about how 2016 was so awful for these same reasons, but I think its rooted in the liberal youth whining about Trump and then it goes from there.

                            Now..JV vs DHoward...amirite?

                              Every year from time immemorial has sucked if you think of it that way.

                                I visited Paris few weeks ago. I never seen so many soldiers on the peaceful streets. (I found out later that France is still under the state of emergency law so that makes sense but still. Scary stuff.)
