He's going to look bad at times going up against multiple defenders and schemes designed to make him play to his weaknesses. There is even room for growth with ball handling, but to suggest he has a below average handle and yet manages to get to the rim like he does, and manages to knock down pull up jimmies off the dribble like he does, makes no sense.

secondly - Lowry gives the ball up to Demar and Ross all the time when he isn't pressured, let alone when he is pressured. There isn't an exteme pressure on Lowry to make a play every time down the court because other players can't handle the ball - that just isn't happening - I have no idea where you see that going on.
Still not clear?
