Kyle Lowry has been sharing point guard duties with Mike Conley all season long. Lowry recently won over the starting position, although he and Conley still tend to play half the game each. Lowry's scoring is down almost 3 points from last year, which can be attributed to the addition of O.J. Mayo in the backcourt, who is averaging over 20 ppg.
***Update: They may be battling for playing time on the court, but Lowry and Conley are great friends off the court.
Season Averages: Points - 6.9, Rebounds - 2.3, Assists - 3.6
Randy Foye is averaging career-highs in points (13.3) and assists (5.4), but his FG% (.389) and 3PT% (.243) are way down. It's a tough situation for Randy in Minnesota right now with his second head coach in three years recently getting fired.
Tim Thomas is enjoying his return to New York and playing under Mike D'Antoni. Since the trade his FG% (.43), 3PT% (.41) , FT% (.84), and scoring (11.3) have all gone up. His 3-point percentage increased over 11% and he is attempting and making more than double the amount of threes per game than he was in L.A.
Season Averages: Points - 10.5, Rebounds - 4.1, Assists - 1.1
