The Round Up - November 23rd, 2012.

Stats Rundown:

Everything Houston Rockets, 72 points in the first half against the New York Knicks and blowing them out 131 to 103 (The Knicks knocked down 17 threes and still got blown out). James Harden remains super efficient, 33 points (7 of 15 shooting, and 16 of 16 on the charity stripe), 9 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block. His fellow Rocket, sophomore Chandler Parsons scored a new career high, 31 points (13 of 17 shooting, 4 of 7 from three), 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and a block.

Boards: Mo hair, don't care. Anderson Varejao grabs anything in the air, 17 rebounds (11 OREB) to go with his 19 points in loss to the Orlando Magic.

Dishin': Rajon Rondo is stat whorin' his way to the 36th game with a double digit assist, his 16 assists, 8 rebounds and 6 points helped edge out the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Shout out: To Greivis Vasquez of the New Orleans Hornets, 25 points (10 of 13 shooting) and 14 assists in the overtime loss to the Suns.

Thief: Byron Mullens is a 7 foot center for the Charlotte Bobcats and somehow stole from the Atlanta Hawks 6 times in the loss.

Rookie Watch: Damian Lillard is taking advantage of Anthony Davis's injury to really put himself in front of the ROY race. 28 points (11 of 17 shooting, 4 of 8 from three), and 8 assists in the victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Honorable Rookie Mentions: Dion Waiters had 25 points and 5 assists for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Andre Drummond gets his first appearance on the list, 13 points, and 13 rebounds for the Detroit Pistons win over the Toronto Raptors.

Time Machine User: Paul Pierce showed the young Thunder how the old dudes do things, 27 points (8 of 16 shooting) in the Boston victory.

Reverse: Tyson Chandler who usually does the blocking, did not do the blocking, Daequan Jones did.

Hot Starts: These guys take things very seriously in the first quarter.
Al Horford had 14 of his 26 points and 5 of his 13 rebounds in the quarter. Carmelo Anthony and Chandler Parsons finished it with 18 points each. In the first 9 minutes against the Indiana Pacers, Tony Parker went 7 of 7 for 14 of his total 33 points and 5 of his 10 assists. Andrea Bargnani actually did something for the Raptors, scoring 17 of his 34 going into the second quarter.

Skates: Lance Stephenson did Tony Parker things to Tony Parker. Age must be a thing.


Lovin ain't Winnin: The Minnesota Timberwolves are 0-2 with Kevin Love back in the line up, they will be fine after some time, but Kevin Love is still kind of scared.
Burnin' the Bugs: The Phoenix Suns went on a 39-9 run to comeback from behind to tie the game against the New Orleans Hornets and win it 111-108 in overtime.

Mile High: Andre Miller is the best and Javale McGee too.

Jokes on you: The Charlotte Bobcats put ZaZa and Ivan Johnson on the kiss cam because they can and it is funny. (Via: @andytoddcook)

Scoopity scoop: Jamal Crawford only plays NBA effective street ball, Gerald Wallace gave it a go too.

Highlight of the Night:  Deron Williams will never attempt a dunk again.

Thank you Slow-mo, for the funniest Blake face yet.
