While it was backup Wiz point guard Andre Miller who suffered the ignominy after Kyle Lowry‘s crossover behind the screen, starting Wiz point John Wall permitted Lowry to rack up a triple-double, a record fourth while a member of the Raptors in what was a thoroughly dominating all-around game by the recently signed full-time Raps point.

We love Lowry, so lets take one more gander at the move that made Andre look his age:

While Lowry only connected on two more of the identical number of field goal attempts — 13 — as Wall, he also added 10 dimes and 11 rebounds for his record fourth triple-double with the Raptors. In 47 fewer games than the 200 games Damon Stoudamire, aka “Mighty Mouse,” started for the Raptors during two-plus seasons including his NBA Rookie of the Year 1995-96 campaign, Lowry has now recorded one more triple-double (4) than Stoudamire (3).

It helps having a player like DeMar DeRozan to share duties with in the backcourt and catch pretty back-door lobs like this one:

Lowry is the hard-nosed defender, all-around player Raptors fans have wanted since Jose Calderon got old. DeRozan is the gunner, who can take over a game with his athleticism and shot-making ability. Combined, they form one of the most lethal backcourts in the NBA, but we doubt you’ll ever catch them engaged in the back-and-forth about such a distinction.

Wall, on the other hand, was just 3-of-13 in a little over 30 minutes of action with just seven assists and three rebounds in the 103-84 Raptors win at home.
