Kyle Lowry played the best basketball of his career during Game 6 of the NBA Finals but it may have been with a heavy heart.

On the latest episode of “Inside the Green Room”, Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green revealed that Lowry’s grandmother died around the time of the Finals.

“The crazy thing is - nobody knew this - he kind of did it, he kept it under wraps and nobody knew but I think his grandmother had passed,” Green said of Lowry.

“I meant to send him a text to send him my condolences. Nobody knew about it and he continued to play, and play really well with that probably on his mind, on his back, or whatever. He came out aggressive in the way we needed him to.”
