This time it was a 102-101 loss to the Detroit Pistons, a game Toronto led by 16 points going into the fourth quarter, a disheartening defeat in which some defensive issues became major ones, with the coverage blown on the game-changing play.
“I’m starting to get worried, yeah,” Kyle Lowry said after Toronto fell to 32-23, a half-game ahead of the fifth-place Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference. “It’s not going the way we’re supposed to be going and things aren’t changing, so yeah, I’m starting to get worried.”
