    Freaking shame that we can't watch this. There's gotta be a replay of that game. Even tho it's just a lockout lg, 50pts is still 50pts. Lowry was lighting it up.

    Rockets guard Kyle Lowry scored 56 points in an Impact League game in Las Vegas on Thursday.
    That's the highest number we've seen so far in the tournament, as Lowry continues to look like a solid fantasy guard over the next few years, especially with Aaron Brooks out of the way in Houston.

    Can we get a boxscore on Lowry's game? Anyone?

    I have a feeling if there is a season Kyle is gonna start off on the right foot. I'm loving these numbers, even if it's just a tune up league.

    Recently people said Durant going off @ Rucker Park meant nothing but now Lowry is dropping 56 in a meaningless game and it's all praise. Interesting... :)

    Durant dropping big numbers in a pick up game is not surprising. Lowry doing the same, is.

    None of it means anything, who hasn't gone off for 50+ in a rec league etc.....

    I mean Von Wafer hit for 42 in the NBA summer league.

    Still, it is pretty cool.

    Impressive!

    Kyle Lowry is a baller, once he gets his outside going he is really hard to deal with, he just bulldoze's small guards in the paint, heck he even pushes big guys out the way sometimes. ;)

    As we all well know, he is capable of anything If he is shooting the ball at 35-40 percent from 3.

    I want to see a boxscore to see how many 3s he nailed...

    Lowry is pretty much our franchise player right now, unless DMo can turn into Melo with better defense.

    Lowry is young at 25, and is locked into a cheap contract. He does everything well can be played in any game situation.

    What? Our franchise player?

    Really?

    I think he is one of our better players, but hardly our franchise player, Luis would be ahead of him, IMO, and arguably KMart as well.

    Our problem is we don't have a franchise player.

    He is the face of the current Rockets.

    His presence on the court is arguably the most important compared to KMart and Scola.

    He impacts every aspect of the game, defense, facilitation, scoring etc.

    Clearly he is one of our better players, but I disagree that he is the face of the current team.

    I guess it is just a matter of opinion and how much you value his play.

    I think he is a good PG, who has a bulldog attitude, I like it, but he is very replaceable for the right deal.

    You are gonna build upon a 31 year old PF? Or a really really good offensive role player in Martin?
