Lowry vs. Foye '08-'09: Part II

Randy Foye and the Minnesota Timberwolves came out on top once again against Kyle Lowry and the Memphis Grizzlies in the second game of the season between the former Villanova backcourt mates. This one was close down the stretch, and with the game tied at 87 with 40 seconds remaining, Foye hit the go-ahead 3-pointer. On the next possession Foye blocked O.J. Mayo's shot to secure the 94-87 victory.

Randy Foye continued on his offensive tear of late, scoring 23 points (7-13, 4-7, 5-6). He is excelling at the shooting guard position, fueling Minesota to their longest winning streak in 2 years, which sadly is only three games.

Kyle Lowry had a slightly above average night, (9 points, 5 assists) compared to his season averages (7.5 points, 4.2 assists). Not surprisingly, more than half his points came from the free throw line where he was 5-6. Lowry was active on the defensive end with 2 blocks, a steal, and 2 rebounds. He has maintained his role as starting point guard for quite some time now, with Mike Conley coming off the bench.
