He had 39 in Game 2, 35 in Game 3 and then 35 as the Cleveland Cavaliers closed out the Raptors in four games to end Toronto's season with a 109-102 win Sunday at the ACC.
Coach Dwane Casey also wondered what might have been. But, the Raptors are entering a muddled summer and there's no telling where Tucker eventually fits. Without knowing it, Lowry was clearly the star of social media yesterday. "Since the second half of the season, he's really gone to another level. I'll take those numbers".
The one player who was going to have an impact regardless of the situation, regardless of the score.
"Sure, but obviously being a free agent you see what's going on", he added.
The problem is finding a team to take Valanciunas.
He's not a go-to option on offence, but he'll move the ball, knock down corner threes and his defence is undeniable. I thought our guys played with grit, toughness, togetherness. "I like the city, I like the fans".
There's a chance that Kyle Lowry may not return if he opts out of his contract this summer (which he said he meant to do) and doesn't re-sign with the Raptors (though to be clear, despite the slight panic we have with this post, he totally could). However, from there, the Cavs finished the quarter with a 15-5 run and the two teams were tied at 28 after one quarter. "You're making a franchise-altering decision, period".
"Man, it sucked", he said. "One of the hardest things to do is sweep teams".
James gave Tucker his due.
His primary focus this summer is on his kids. It took them 20 years to win 50 games, something they've done in two straight seasons.

In order to proceed with the case, Julian Assange would have to be formally notified of the criminal suspicions against him. Ecuador's foreign minister, Guillaume Long, tweeted Friday that Britain "must now grant safe passage" to Assange.
"He tries to go as far as we need him", Lue said.
"Get our rotations set. and do some things defensively we know we're capable of doing". Maybe we underestimated the Cavaliers.
The Cavs are the first team ever to sweep six playoff series (of four or more games) in three years, having now swept six of 10 dating to the 2015 playoffs.

The Raptors were adjusting on the fly, no easy task when so much of their offence ran through DeMar DeRozan. That is the eighth-best stretch of eight games for the Cavs this season and their best stretch of eight games since before the All-Star break. DeRozan, who was obviously a bit frustrated, talked about how James was clearly the difference maker among these two teams.
As for what he's looking for in free agency, Lowry said the chance at a championship is top of his list.
Can he get one with the Raptors?
"More shooters", DeRozan said. So you'd expect the two teams, never playing on the same day, would be locked into each other's games, scouting for down the road. "The more you have, your team becomes deadlier".
It was eight minutes of clock time, but the series in microcosm: The Cavaliers absolutely torching the Raptors from distance, and Toronto unable to respond with three-point shots of their own. The Cavs had too many threats for the Raptors to contain.
