Kyle Lowry quietly dominates Toronto Raptors win over Denver Nuggets

On Wednesday, the Toronto Raptors snapped their nine-game losing streak with a historic win over the Denver Nuggets.

Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby and Norman Powell led the way for the Raptors with a combined 72 points, but Kyle Lowry quietly had a dominant game.

While he finished with only eight points, nine assists and five rebounds, the Raptors outscored the Nuggets by a total of 42 points in the 33 minutes Lowry was on the court. According to StatMuse, that's the highest plus/minus by any player this season and the second-highest in Raptors franchise history, trailing only Mark Jackson.

It's also the best single game plus/minus of Lowry's career.

Wednesday's matchup with Denver was Toronto's final game before this season's trade deadline on Thursday, March 25. Earlier in the day, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Raptors were discussing deals "on multiple fronts" for both Lowry and Norman Powell.

It remains to be seen if either one of them gets traded, but if Wednesday's contest does turn out to be Lowry's last with the Raptors, he sure went out on a bang.
