The Round Up - November 24th, 2012.

Stats Rundown:

The Dynamic Duo from the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't hold back, combining for 67 points of their team's total 113. Kevin Durant went for 37 points (10 of 22), 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals and 3 blocks. Russell Westbrook added 30 points (11 of 23), 5 rebounds, 9 assists and 2 steals.

Honorable Mentions: Thaddeus Young gave the Sixers 29 points and 15 rebounds against the OKC Thunder.

Shout out: To Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats, the 7 footer finished with 27 points (9 of 15 shooting, 5 of 11 from three), 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks in the overtime win over the Washington Wizards.

Boards: I don't know if this is actually real, but Carlos Boozer grabbed 19 rebounds (8 Offensive) to go with his 22 points for the victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Someone please confirm this.

Dishin': Jrue Holiday handed out 13 assists in a bad shooting night, 3 of 11 for 6 points in the overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Thief: Chris Paul robbed the Atlanta Hawks of 7 basketballs, despite his 19 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists, the Clippers still fell at the Highlight Factory.

Rookie Watch: Harrison Barnes did more than just embarrass Nikola Pekovic on nation television (You will see what I mean), he also had 10 points (4 of 7 shooting) and 11 rebounds in the win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Time Machine User: Kobe Bryant did get 19 points (6 of 11 shooting), and 5 assists in the blowout win over the Dallas Mavericks, but the honor goes to Ray Allen. 5 rebounds and 17 points, 3 of which placed the Miami Heat a single point ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers with 18 seconds left in the game for the victory.

Washington Sadness: The Wizards lost again in overtime. John Wall and Randy Wittman will probably not be back for this franchise.

Michael Jordan Owned: The victory over the Washington Wizards gives the Charlotte Bobcats their 7th win, tying their win total from last season (66 games) in just 12 games. Thank you Mike Dunlap and Rich Cho.

Wanted List: DeMarcus Cousins dunked on Derrick Favors and will probably get suspended for 5 games for the highlight. (Jokes, but he did get ejected for a minor retaliation bump on Enes Kanter and it made the referees look like they were out to get Cousins thrown out.)

Whoops: You are doing something wrong if Andris Biedrins gives you the look of disappointment, Draymond Green. Do not try to take another man's rebound and then score on your own basket. (Via:@cjzero)

Metta World Threes: MWP knocked down 5 of 7 three point attempts to add to his 19 point total. On most days, those are ill advised shots but Mike D'Antoni don't care. Just don't expect it to keep happening.

Human Ostrich: Chris Bosh scored his 13,000th point today. Congratulations, your neck extends as your total points pile up.

Trick Tricks: Kevin Love would rather pass the ball to himself than actually give the ball to Greg Stiemsma on offense.

Highlight of the Night: Breaking News - Harrison Barnes is missing from the Golden State Warriors locker room, his status is uncertain. Update - Nikola Poekovic has brutally ripped the spine off the rookie and is drinking his blood (using the small intestine as a straw) as he yells "You No Dunk on Pekovic, Dunk and You Die."
