Toronto was celebrating after last night's Raptors win against the Celtics. However, it seems like one star caught more attention than the rest. Raptors' Kyle Lowry was on fire last night and other NBA players took notice.
The 34-year-old NBA veteran was pulling out all of the moves during Game 6.
The father of two put up an impressive 33 points under intense pressure on Wednesday night.

As if that wasn’t enough, Lowry also pumped out eight rebounds, six assists, and two steals, playing for a total of 53 minutes. He was a man on fire.
Even though last night was clearly a big notch on Kyle’s legacy belt, he remained humble and focused on what should be expected.
“I mean, we had to work. Our job is to be out there and play as hard as possible. We’re playing against a physical, tough team, well-coached, a couple of all-stars and some real-life stars and a great team,” Lowry stated.
“We had to work hard for this win and for us. Personally, that’s what we do."
While Lowry might be too modest to pat himself on the back, that didn’t stop other NBA players from taking to social media to sing his praises.
Everyone from Joel Embiid to DeMar DeRozan took to Twitter on Wednesday night to boast the player as the GOAT he is.*
“Kyle Lowry is not appreciated as he should be,” Embid wrote.
DeMar DeRozan kept his praise more simple, just tagging the all-star during the game.
The Raptors will face off against the Boston Celtics for the final time on Friday evening.
