Raptors' Lowry notches fourth career triple-double
Kyle Lowry made a late push for inclusion in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game on Friday night, notching the fourth triple-double of his career.
Lowry has 17 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists with three minutes left to play against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The 27-year-old point guard last posted a triple-double in March (10-10-10) and had also done so in January of 2012 (16-10-10) and March of 2011 (28-11-10). Seems he's good for one a year.
It's also just the 14th triple-double in Toronto Raptors history. Lowry's second as a Raptor ties him with Jose Calderon and Marcus Camby for the most in franchise history, one behind Damon Stoudamire.
Lowry entered play Friday averaging 16.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 7.3 assists, the first and last of which are career-best marks.
Update: Lowry finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists.
