The Round Up - December 16th, 2012.

Stats Rundown

Jose Calderon gets his second career triple double, 18 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists in the victory over the Houston Rockets. The Raptors are on a 2 game winning streak after losing 6 games in a row. Watch out NBA world!

Boards: J.J. Hickson of the Portland Trail Blazers had 16 rebounds (8 Offensive) and 24 points (10 of 14 shooting) in a spectacular win over the New Orleans Hornets.

5x5: Nicholas Batum joins a short list of players that have accomplished a 5x5, a feat that requires at least 5 in each of the 5 "Good" statistics. His 11 points, 5 rebounds, 10 assists, 5 steals and 5 blocks makes him the 8th player since 86'-87' to ever do so.

Rookie Watch: In the first battle between the ROY candidates, Anthony Davis outperformed Damian Lillard with an efficient 15 points (5 of 10) and 5 rebounds off the bench. But it didn't matter because the Hornets lost and Damian who had 16 points (5 of 14), scored the game winning basket.

Time Machine User: Kobe Bryant became the 3rd player in NBA history to score at least 30 points in 5 straight games over the age of 34, with his 34 points (12 of 21), 4 rebounds and 6 assist performance that defeated the Philadelphia 76ers.

Athletic Reptiles: Again, Raptor shooting guards are drafted only based on dunking ability.

What Bust?: Kwame Brown lets the Los Angeles Lakers know what they have been missing.
