Since being drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies, Kyle Lowry(notes) has had a reputation as a stingy defender at the point guard position, a bulldog type with a penchant for making opponents work to get buckets. Now a member of the Houston Rockets, it's not surprising at all that Lowry would guard Russell Westbrook(notes) tight enough to steal the ball off of him when the Rockets took on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. Par for the course, really.
Of course (not the same course; this one's mini-putt, the other was a full 18 holes), as we know, Westbrook's also a darn good defender. That, friends, is a recipe for some DOUBLE YOINKS!
