Kyle Lowry showed up to the Heat’s playoff game on Monday looking like he just played 36 and the internet did its thing

On Monday night, the top-seeded Miami Heat glided past the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers 106-92 in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series. The Heat held James Harden to 16 points on 5-of-13 shooting and barely had to get out of second gear, even without one of their best players, Kyle Lowry. Although Lowry, nursing a hamstring injury suffered in the Heat's first-round series against the Hawks, never took the floor, he still stole a chunk of the headlines thanks to his courtside drip. Exactly the kind of courtside drip we can relate to, in fact.

Within moments of the cameras finding on Lowry, clad in a Floridian National Golf Club cap, a long-sleeve polo, and a pair of crisp khakis, the internet was all over it like 15-handicappers on the beverage cart.

It wasn’t just the normies who were feeling Lowry’s just-played-36 energy, however. Seth Curry—NBA peer, Tiger Woods stan, and brother of golf sicko Steph—also sounded off on Lowry’s fit.

There’s no word yet on when Lowry will return for the Heat, but until that hammy heals up, let’s hope he chooses to ride.
