NBA Action 2/13
Kyle Lowry had a good night in a return to his hometown of Philadelphia to play the 76ers. It was his first time playing in an NBA game there because he was injured last season during Memphis' only trip to Philly. With rumors of a possible trade, Kyle came out and played hard off the bench. He had 15 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds. He was 4-8 from the field, 3-5 for three, and a perfect 4-4 from the free throw line. His homecoming was spoiled however, as his Grizzlies fell short to the Sixers 102-88. Although Mike Conley got the start, Lowry earned 39 minutes, while Conley only played 9.
Randy Foye had a season-high 18 points in the Timberwolves' 117-92 loss to the Lakers tonight. Foye was 6-16 from the field and connected for a season-high four 3-pointers on seven attempts. He also dished out 3 assists, grabbed 3 rebounds, and had a steal in 29 minutes off the bench, which is the most playing he's received since coming back from injury.
