With Kyle Lowry now due to play, the Raptors look to take out their recent frustrations on the Suns in the second night of a back-to-back. Let’s watch.

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Last night sure was a frustrating loss for the Raptors and their fans, but the good thing about the NBA is there’s always another game. Tonight, Toronto looks to take out their frustrations over last night’s loss to the Celtics on the poor 11-34 Phoenix Suns.

Within the last two hours, coach Nick Nurse threw us another curveball as he announced that Kyle Lowry will indeed play tonight after being previously announced out due to rest. Lowry tested out his back pre-game and is apparently “pissed off” about last night’s result.

I’d be worried if I was a Suns fan tonight.

For more pre-game reading, make sure to check out Mitch Orsatti’s game preview from this morning — and add in Lowry’s presence everywhere it says he’ll be out.
