Lowry Scores 21 in OT Victory
Kyle Lowry got the start with Mike Conley injured again, and he came up big in Memphis' 125-120 overtime victory over the L.A. CLippers. Lowry had a career-high 21 points to go along with 8 rebounds and 4 assists in 49 minutes of action. He was 7-12 from the field and also 7-12 from the free throw line. Most impressively he only had one turnover while running the point almost the entire night. He had the go ahead basket with about 25 seconds left in overtime with a putback after getting an offensive rebound off of Hakim Warrick's missed jumper. Lowry is proving that he can start in this league ,and more importantly, finish games and help lead his team to victory. Lowry played against another former Villanova star Tim Thomas of the Clippers. Thomas had 23 points (10-13 FG, 2-2 3-pt) and 8 rebounds but fouled out late in overtime.
