One person on the Rockets whose played like a seasoned veteran all year has been sixth-year point guard Kyle Lowry, who was featured on Tom Ziller's MVP Rankings this Wednesday.
|16.5 points on .564 TS%, 8.7 assists, 6.9 rebounds, 2.1 steals
|The Rockets are now reflecting Lowry's genius, riding a hot streak into the playoff seeds. If Lowry and Kevin Martin can carry Houston all of the way into the postseason in Kevin McHale's first full season as a head coach, a whole lot of crow will be eaten around the league.
Those numbers are LeBron-esque, and Lowry's presence in the lineup is proving to be a real difference maker for Kevin McHale and for the rest of the Rockets top players. Kevin Martin's shot selection has improved, Luis Scola and Samuel Dalembert are getting shots closer to the rim and the role players are increasingly involved in the offense.
So NBA fans...can you make this man an All-Star? Its the least you could do.
