NBA Playoffs 2014: Kyle Lowry gets his knee rubbed (GIF)


One of the biggest questions entering Sunday evening’s game 4 between the Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors was the health of Raptors’ star point guard Kyle Lowry and his injured knee.

Before the game, Lowry told Raptors.com there was no way he would miss the game.

Lowry stayed true to his word, starting Sunday night’s game and was playing well early on as the Raptors exploded for 35 first quarter points, building a 13-point lean heading into the second quarter.

Despite the Lowry and the Raptors’ early success on Sunday, Lowry looks to be in obvious pain and is constantly getting his knee checked out on the sideline.

As the first quarter was winding down, TNT cameras caught a trainer rubbing Lowry’s knee.
