Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said he went into the locker room late in the first half of Thursday night’s 108-89 Game 2 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers because he needed to “decompress.”

“Just to kind of decompress, get back there, kind of relax my body and relax my mind,” Lowry said. “And knowing that we had a chance to kind of make some things [happen], I wanted to get myself going and get my teammates going and get the team going. It was nothing more than just kind of to decompress, breathe and get back out.”
