BROOKLYN, N.Y. - The votes have already been sent in, but Kyle Lowry keeps sending a message — I’m an all-star.

Though the chances of Toronto’s point guard to make his first all-star game are considered somewhat dicey, there’s little question his numbers scream all-star-worthy. Lowry added to his resume Monday with a massive performance in Toronto’s stunning 104-103 win over the hard-charging Nets.

Lowry scored 31 points, added seven assists and five rebounds in another resume-building effort.

Patrick Patterson, playing without a mask despite a broken nose, stole an inbounds pass with Toronto down one, then hit the winner. Paul Pierce missed a long three at the buzzer as the Raptors moved 2 1/2 games up on Brooklyn in the Atlantic.
