Kyle Lowry Hilariously Flopped While Guarding Jaylen Brown Despite Not Getting Touched

Kyle Lowry Hilariously Flopped While Guarding Jaylen Brown Despite Not Getting Touched

Kyle Lowry is one of the most underrated defenders in the NBA. Despite being on the smaller end of the NBA players spectrum, Lowry is gritty and determined on the defensive end of the court, always serving as a pest while guarding opposition players.

Lowry is also not above using slightly dubious tactics to try and draw fouls. But last night, one of those tactics did not work in his favor at all.

During Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics, Kyle Lowry was tasked with guarding the in-form Jaylen Brown. Brown was constantly bumping into Lowry to try and force him away.

Lowry then clutched his face after a move from Brown, as it looked like Brown had hit him in the face. But a closer look at the replay showed that there was no contact made to Lowry's face by Brown.

Lowry and the Heat were not able to stop Jaylen Brown at all, as he had a solid offensive performance against Miami.

On top of that, Brown and the Celtics also played excellent defense against the Heat, restricting them to just 80 points as they picked up the win in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. Stephen A. Smith slammed the Heat for their offensive performance in Game 5.

The Boston Celtics are now just one win away from reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010. But Jayson Tatum and the Celtics are not underestimating the Heat, as he said the same in the post-game press conference.

The Heat will need to be at their absolute best against the Celtics over the next two games if they stand any chance of overcoming this series deficit and reaching the NBA Finals for the second time since 2019.
