Raptors PG Kyle Lowry's effective field goal percentage on uncontested shots (which adjusts for the fact that 3s are worth more than 2s) was 69.4 percent before he had his right elbow drained on March 28 (seventh among 80 guards to take at least 100 such shots). But after, that percentage plummeted to 40 percent (last among 44 players with at least 30 attempts) -- drop-off via ESPN Stats & Information. Perhaps if Lowry gets some points on drives it would open up his confidence to drill long-distance shots again. But shot-blocking C Hassan Whiteside looms in the paint for the Heat.
