Line of the Night

Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors): 21 PTS, 11 AST, 6 STL, 3 REB, 8-19 FG

It's taken nine seasons, but it's about time to include Kyle Lowry in the "Best Point Guards in the NBA" discussion. He turned the ball over nine times and missed the game-clinching jumper in regulation, but he controlled the offense in the extra frame and carried the East-leading Raptors to a victory at MSG. Lowry's definitely in the Top 10 of PG's in the league and should be a strong case for an All-Star bid this February, but soon enough we're gonna have to look at #7 from Toronto as one of the best in the NBA.
