The Round Up - November 14th, 2012.

Stats Rundown:

Kevin Durant scored 34 points (12 of 21 shooting), grabbed 10 rebounds, handed out 5 assists, stole 3 basketballs, and blocked 2 of them in the loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Honorable Mention: LeBron James, 30 points (12 of 23 shooting), 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 blocks in the loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Board Monster: Greg Monroe took down 18 boards today in the first Detroit Pistons win of the season. Poor Philadelphia 76ers, not only do they lose to the winless team, they have to deal with Andrew Bynum's hair.

Dishin': A surprise entry from Russell Westbrook, dishing out 13 dimes in the loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Thief: Ray Allen took the basketball away 5 times in the loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Butter Fingers: For some reason, the players that were the best for their team today, Jamal Crawford and Greg Monroe gave the ball up 6 times. Didn't matter because they both won.

Rookie Watch: Harrison Barnes finished with 19 points and 13 rebounds in the victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Time Machine User: Paul Pierce dropped 23 points in the win over the Utah Jazz.

Hurtin' Tim BUUURR wolves: The Timber wolves have lost a player in each of their last 5 games, they are now down to 8 healthy players on the roster. (There is total of 7 injured on this team, Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy, J.J. Barea, Nikola Pekovic, Chase Budinger and now Malcolm Lee).

Rondo-ing: Another 10 assists for the Boston point guard, continuing his streak to 32 games. It might end next game, because Rondo sprained his ankle and his status is not clear for Thursday.

Winless: The Washington Wizards remain as the last team without a victory, their current record is 0-7. Detroit snapped their 8 game losing streak in the win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Free Basketball: The Chicago Bulls took down the Phoenix Suns in overtime.

Jordan: Blake Griffin auditioned to be the jump man. (Via @JIM_ICE)

Tall Man trick tricks: Marc Gasol using his entire repertoire of moves to leave Kendrick Perkins motionless.

Bullying: Marc Gasol did a little off the heezy on Russell Westbrook.

AIRBALL!: Willie Green doing his best Andris Biedrins impression. Totally nailed it. (Via @sbnationGIF)

Bosh Face: I missed you, glad to have you back. (Via @cjzero)

 What's up, Shawty: Nate Robinson found a way to use his height as an advantage.

Rejected: Eric Bledsoe completely denied Dwyane Wade's dunk attempt.

Highlight of the Night: Jeff Green awarded Al Jefferson with some Sport Center minutes and Rondo loves it.

Game Winner: Kemba Walker taking the Bobcats to their fourth victory with a buzzer beating dagger.
