It’s an open question whether Toronto Raptors All-Star Kyle Lowry would mesh with Kawhi Leonard following the trade of best bud, DeMar DeRozan.
While we’re not at the point of coming to any conclusion less than two games into their season, it looks like the new tandem up north is cooking in a big way.
Just check out this dish from Lowry to Leonard for the flush against the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

This bucket gave Toronto a two-point lead midway through the third quarter and showed a nice amount of chemistry between the two All-Stars.
Given that Boston and Toronto are among the teams contending back east, this is a nice early-season barometer game for each squad. The Raptors ultimately took a 82-79 lead after three quarters with Lowry and Leonard combining for 34 points.
