Toronto Raptors teammates trash their own play after rough stretch

The Toronto Raptors have hit a rough patch of late, dropping their previous three consecutive contests.

For teammates DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, they've taken to shouldering the blame for the team's struggles.

From Toronto Sun:

"Asked to describe his game at the moment, Lowry had a quick response: "Me? I'm trash," Lowry told reporters. "I'm trying to figure it out right now, to be honest with you. I don't know (how to fix it), that's why I'm in here, working hard and trying to figure out what to do to get myself back on track."

DeRozan did not duck away from that assessment of the status of his own game.

"Right next to the trash can (that Lowry's) is. Both trash," DeRozan told the Sun."

DeRozan and Lowry are shooting in the mid-30 percent range for the month, each of them turning the ball over nine times in the past three games. Lowry has shot under 27 percent twice in the previous three contests, while connecting on 0-of-9, 1-of-6 and 2-of-9 from 3-point range.

The Raptors will look to turn things around Friday night against the Golden State Warriors.
