Foye Ties Career High With 32 Points

Randy Foye matched his career high of 32 points in a 129-87 blowout of the Oklahoma City Thunder last night. He had his best shooting night of the season, (10-16 FG, 6-9 3PT, 6-6 FT) and he also dished out 6 assists. He did it all in the first three quarters, before resting with the comfortable lead in the fourth.

Foye has now scored in double figures for ten straight games and is averaging 20.7 points per game during that span. He is heating up from behind the arc, shooting .565% in January despite a rough start to the season. I predicted this would be Foye's breakout year, and it seems like he is finally figuring out his role in the league. If he keeps up the good play he could be looking at a big pay day after next season when his rookie contract expires. The recent sucess certainly gives Randy a reason to smile.
