Lowry as a Starter
Kyle Lowry had another solid performance despite the loss to Dallas last night in his third career start, scoring 17 points to go with 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 0 turnovers. He got to the free throw line an impressive 14 times, but uncharacteristically made only 6. Take a look at his season splits. As a starter, this season Lowry is averaging 17.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 1.33 steals, and only 1.7 turnovers in 47.0 minutes per game. Off the bench Lowry is averaging 7.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.98 steals, and 1.6 turnovers in 22.7 minutes per game. As expected, his productivity in scoring, assists, and rebounding jump up when given the playing time, but surprisingly, his turnover rate remains at the same respectably low rate, which is most impressive for the young point guard.
