The win gave the Raptors an early 2-0 series lead on the Nets, and Lowry celebrated by slapping the butt of a staff member in the tunnel.

The 34-year-old point guard is surely enjoying himself in the NBA’s Orlando, Fla. bubble.
The defending champion Raptors are off to a great start this postseason, especially considering the fact that the Eastern Conference’s No. 1-seeded Milwaukee Bucks lost their opening game to the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.
The Raptors hold the East’s No. 2 seed and are looking to repeat as NBA champions.
Lowry had a solid game on Wednesday, scoring 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting. He also added nine rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Despite superstar Kawhi Leonard’s departure this offseason, the Raptors still look like title contenders.
Lowry averaged 19.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game during the 2019-20 regular season.
