NBA - US Sports: Lowry looking forward to Toronto return

Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry says coming up against his former team Toronto Raptors on Sunday night will be "emotional".

The Heat are 7/5 to win on the Money Line at Toronto, while the Raptors can be backed at 5/8, and you can follow the action on our Sports Live Streaming hub.

Lowry ready for reunion

Lowry spent nine years with Toronto and won the Championship with the team in 2019, as well as earning six All-Star selections.

The 36-year-old joined Miami in a sign-and-trade deal from Toronto in the offseason, but he missed the first three meetings between the two teams this season due to personal reasons.

Lowry is set to come up against his old team for the first time since his departure on Sunday and he is looking forward to the occasion.

"I'm looking forward to it, just being able to go to a place I've called home for so long and a place I still call home, that has a dear and special place in my heart," said Lowry after Miami's 127-109 win over Chicago Bulls on Saturday. "It's going to be emotional."

He added: "I'm sure they'll [the Toronto fans] cheer me for a while, and then if we start to win, boo me. It's all love and it's just being able to show the appreciation I want to and I'm sure they'll appreciate me for what I've been able to do."

Heat on course for NBA glory

The Heat sit at the top of the Eastern Conference with a 50-28 overall record and have already secured a playoff spot.

Toronto are well placed to claim a top six seed as they currently sit in fifth place and have a two-and-a-half game lead over Cleveland Cavaliers in seventh.
