Halloween Basketball Round Up [10/31/12].

 Stats run down:

Remember when people doubted James Harden's ability to step into the spotlight? Well, He didn't do too bad in his new jersey, just adding himself into a piece of NBA History with 37 points, 12 assists, 6 rebounds, 4 steals and 1 blocked shot. Which have only been accomplished by four players, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Dwyane Wade and himself in the past 25 seasons, no biggie.

Board Monster: Zach Randolph wiped the glass with 16 boards in a loss to the LA Clippers

Rookie Watch: Damian Lillard killed the Lakers with 23 points and 11 dimes, joining Oscar Robertson and Isiah Thomas as only players in NBA history with at least 20 points and 10 assists in NBA debut.

OverPAID: As a Canadian, I want the Raptors to do well, but sorry, Landry Fields. If you get a 3 year, 20 million deal, you have to do better than shooting 0 for 6, with 0 points and only 2 rebounds.

Butter fingers: DeAndre Jordan just dropping the ball, with 9 turnovers in a Clippers win.

Time Machine User: At age 36, the Big Fundamental still got it. Tim Duncan led the Spurs to victory with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Fans of the night: Very unlikely combo, but it's Halloween, who cares.

Highlight of the night: Aminu and his complicated first name, showing us that one hand is always better than two.

Game Winner: Stupid George Hill got off a floater with 2 seconds left in the game, spoiling Jonas Valaciunas's debut.
