Food for Thought: Kyle Lowry in his last 3

Kyle Lowry in his last three games has amassed 10 (and counting), 8, and 12 assists respectively.  After a terrible start to the season where he was likely still suffering from the effects of his injury, many labeled him a bust, asserting he was not worth the contract he was given and could not handle a starting position in this league. How does everyone feel now?  Were these numbers only possible due to the weak competition the team was facing (PHX, TOR, GSW)?  Is Aaron Brooks still a better option at the ’1′?

I do feel that given Lowry’s inability to score and create, he is a bad fit next to Battier in the lineup.  But thinking long-term, with Shane most likely not part of the future (at least as the starter), I just still feel Lowry’s passing and playmaking gives this team the best chance to win big, especially at his pricetag.  One thing is clear, with the play of Ish Smith, it’s not likely that both Aaron Brooks and Kyle Lowry will be a part of Houston’s future at point guard.
