Three Things to Watch in Game 7: Toronto and Indiana Edition (Ball Don’t Lie)

The Toronto Raptors will attempt to stave off embarrassment, for the third postseason in a row, while the Indiana Pacers will try to keep irrelevance at arm’s length as both teams work to make it into the second round via a Game 7 performance on Sunday night. With the stakes in place, we decided to dive into three basketball rings that could make a difference. 1. Kyle Lowry We’re all aware that DeMar DeRozan is taking 17.7 shots on his way toward 15.8 points per game in the playoffs. We know that Toronto center Jonas Valanciunas has been alternately dominant and dormant based mostly around whether or not the Pacers decide to call out their switches. We get that Norman Powell is a rookie and that, apparently via the terms of his contract, Terrence Ross is not allowed to play basketball in April. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Kyle Lowry is the key. He’s made fewer than a third of his shots since messing up his elbow a month ago, he dribbles far more with his left hand than we’re used to, and he’s fading to the side on jumpers. Lowry is shooting just 31 percent on the series, and though his Pacer counterpart George Hill is a heady defender, this isn’t all on the Indiana schemes. Lowry is clearly not the same player that helped push Toronto to the East’s second-best record. One shouldn’t expect it, but even badly-injured players can have a turnaround game. Lowry doesn’t even have to hit from outside or post up his rangy opponent in Hill close to the hoop – he can work that famed inside-out dribble on his way to double-digit free throw attempts or help save broken plays. Any little bit helps. Kyle Lowry, in a Raptor career full of looking over his shoulder (more on that later) should know as much. 2. The Pine
