The Round Up - November 3rd, 2012.

Stats Rundown:

Chris Bosh bagged the Nuggets with 40 points and 7 rebounds in the Heat victory. Our beloved James Harden has been dethroned, only scoring 24 points tonight.

Board Monster: Anderson Varejao's hair caught 17 balls that missed the rim.

Butter Fingers: James Harden, Monta Ellis, Shawn Marion, Tony Parker, Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, Isiah Thomas and Kyle Lowry all lost 5 basketballs today.

Rookie Watch:
Damian Lillard is not playing like a rookie, scoring 20 points and 9 assists, making him and Oscar Robertson are only players in NBA history with at least 20 points and 7 dimes in their first 3 games. And he becomes the first NBA player to score at least 20 points in each of his first three career games since Grant Hill in 1994. (Via @TrailBlazersPR)

Time Machine User: Paul Pierce dropped 27 and grabbed 7 boards in a victory against the young Washington Wizards.

Thief: Nicolas Batum took away 6 basketballs for the first time (Career high).

Free Basketball:
The Portland Blazers beat the Houston Rockets 95 to 85 in overtime.
The Indiana Pacers beat the Sacramento Kings 106 to 98 in DOUBLE overtime.

Puzzled Commentator: He really didn't want Blake Griffin to take that jumper.

Unfitting Mascot in Brooklyn: Presenting the Brooklyn Knight, even I can't make fun of this, it is already a joke in it self. I am just guessing they ran out of ideas and just took the team name from Like Mike. (Via @YouBigDummy) Looking like an evil power ranger.

Blake Griffin Face of the night: That is quite a surprise face, thank you

Quote of the night:
From @JMcDonald_SAEN: Manu proclaims himself "very happy" to be back on floor, then corrects himself: "Wait ... happy is not a word anymore." This is how you discipline players, Coach Pop knows what he is doing.

Highlight of the night:
Kyrie Irving played the Bulls tonight, so he did a Derrick Rose-y lay up remind them of the pain.

Game Winners:
Brandon Jennings with his best Derek Fisher impression.

Oh no! LeBron passed up another game winning opportunity, but this time he got it to the guy with the long resume.
