Early shots in the clock when nobody from teammates yet is in position even for rebounding? That is teenager mistakes, should be yanked after that and given good speech by coach. Or game vs Houston, Raptors
cutting in the lead and he had 2 on 1 break after stealing the ball with some other Raptor under the basket for easy 2 - instead he does stupidest thing.. steps back for three, misses, ball goes other way and all momentum is gone.
All in all I like his hustle and heart - do not like his brain. Not sure if that is correctable.
I'd like for you to name me a better PG that we could acquire.
Please think long about that and get back to me.
LOL @ 12 shots/gm being "selfish".
Did you even watch tonight's game?

How many shots did Lowry have in the 1st quarter.....3.
