Kyle Lowry stats: What are his numbers with Miami Heat?

Kyle Lowry is a six-time All-Star who was nominated to the All-NBA Third Team in 2016 and led the Toronto Raptors to their first and only NBA championship in 2019. He was a part of the United States national team that won gold in the 2016 Summer Olympics. Lowry is widely recognized as the best Raptors player of all time for his role in transforming the organization from the post-Vince Carter period to a true NBA contender, leading to the franchise’s first-ever title in 2019. Lowry was a key contributor to the Raptors’ success, helping them reach two Eastern Conference Finals and have all five of their 50-win seasons from 2012 to 2021.

College First Team All-Big 5

Lowry was chosen to the Big East All-Rookie team as a freshman at Villanova and was awarded Philly Big Five Rookie of the Year. He averaged 7.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game in 24 games (3 starts). He was chosen to the All-Big East Second Team as a sophomore, as well as the First Team All-Big 5. He averaged 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.3 steals per game in 33 games (31 starts). The Villanova Wildcats retired Lowry’s number one jersey on February 27, 2020.

Kyle Lowry joined Miami Heat in 2021

The Miami Heat acquired Lowry from the Raptors in a sign-and-trade on August 6, 2021, in return for former colleagues Goran Dragi and Precious Achiuwa. Lowry scored his first triple-double with the Heat and 19th career triple-double in a 118-115 win over the Utah Jazz on November 6, 2021, with 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists while shooting 72% from the field. With a 53-29 record, Lowry led the Heat to the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Lowry missed many games during the 2022 playoff run due to a hamstring issue. Lowry had a double-double of 18 points and 10 assists in a 111-103 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on May 27. The Heat was ousted in Game 7 with a 100-96 defeat.

Kyle Lowry is often considered as ‘Pitbull’

Lowry’s tenacity on the court has garnered him comparisons to a pit bull or bulldog, with many praising his toughness, leadership, and sense for winning plays. Curtis Sumpter, Lowry’s Villanova teammate, recalls “He was really difficult. He wasn’t the most outgoing person. He wasn’t coming down to try to throw 150 crossovers and perform all of these incredible feats. It was not his style. He was so steady and able to read defenses and make the perfect throw at the right moment to bring people in position to score.”

Lowry “was probably the best point guard in the Eastern Conference from start to finish [of the 2013-14 season], raining off-the-bounce 3s, getting Toronto into its offense, toning down the wild gambles on defense, and using that stubby little body to draw more charges than anyone,” Grantland’s Zach Lowe wrote in 2014.

Lowry is regarded as a powerful rebounder and an outstanding defender for his position. For the 2013-14 season, he set the Toronto Raptors franchise record for most triple-doubles as well as the most three-point field goals made in a season.
