Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic made it a point guard double sweep in the NBA player of the week polls after both having excellent games in the league.

In the East, Lowry picked up the honor just days after being harshly left out of the All-Star reserves roster for Joe Johnson of all people.

That snub seemed to motivate the Toronto Raptors man though, as he averaged 25 points, 8 assists, and 5 rebounds per game in leading his team to a 3-1 record.

And even in the loss the loss to Portland, Lowry still put up 23 points and had eight assists on the night, doing all he could do drag his side on. 

On the West side, Goran Dragic, another All-Star snub, takes the award home, giving Kevin Durant a rest from saying thank you all the time. 

The Phoenix Sun's point man electrified to the tune of 26.8 points, 6.0 assists, and 4.0 rebounds per game to go along with 64% shooting from the field and a quite incredible 69.2% from beyond the arc.

Dragic was the chief reason that Phoenix went 4-0 during the past week, including inflicting only Indiana's second home loss of the season on the Pacers.
