Kyle Lowry winces after 3-pointer due to thumb injury
Kyle Lowry is clearly playing through pain during the Eastern Conference finals.
Lowry made a big 3-pointer during the second quarter of Game 3 of the conference finals between his Toronto Raptors and the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. The shot made the score 47-38 Toronto, but Lowry cradled his left hand after the shot and was wincing, as TNT pointed out.

The Raptors point guard sprained his left thumb during the team’s Game 7 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in the conference semis. It didn’t seem to bother him during his brilliant shooting game (10-for-15) in Game 1 of the series, which Toronto lost. He shot the ball well in the first half against Milwaukee in Game 3, going 3-for-5 with a couple of threes.
Lowry is putting the injury issue aside during the series and doing his best to play through it.
