After defeating the Miami Heat 116-89 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Sunday, Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry discussed his next opponent.

ESPN's Doris Burke asked the 30-year-old All-Star about LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers after he dropped a game-high 35 points:

Here's Lowry’s response:

LeBron's probably one of the best players in the league, besides Steph [Curry]. Kyrie [Irving]'s a tough matchup, and Kevin Love's always a tough matchup. But we're going to go in there and play our game and try to go out there and do our job and see what happens.

Besides Steph.

Expect those words to echo with the King, who recently traded subtle comments with the two-time reigning MVP about the award.
