The Round Up - December 18th, 2012.

Stats Rundown

We have two triple doubles in the 10 game schedule from last night and both of them were the second triple double in each of their respective careers. Jordan Crawford had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in another overtime Wizards loss. Joakim Noah didn't score as many points, but he got 11 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists, 3 blocks and the W over the Boston Celtics.

Doin' Work: Another historic night for LeBron James. His 22 points, 7 rebounds, 11 assists, and 4 blocks is a line that have not been accomplished in the past 16 seasons, besides for the 4 other times he has done it. And to do it without a turnover tonight, makes him the first. Bonus, he didn't commit a single foul, this dude is unreal.

Rookie Watch: In his first game back into the starting line up, Anthony Davis shows us why we should fear the brow. 15 points (4 of 7), 16 rebounds, 4 steals and a block in the loss to the Golden State Warriors. The Hornets are on a 8 game losing streak.

Time Machine User: Tim Duncan celebrates the opening of his car shop with a throwback performance of 31 points (11 of 25), 18 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and 5 blocks in the loss to the Denver Nuggets. Oh, and he scored his 23,000th point in this game as well.

Kobe Bryant scored 30 points again, which makes it his 7th, and the only player to do so at 34 or older.

Fail: Reggie Evans missed the game winning layup agianst the Utah Jazz. The Charlotte Bobcats had 10 seconds to beat the Los Angeles Lakers, they had 4 attempts during that time and of course they lost, because they are the Bobcats.

Things didn't go well for the Minnesota Timberwolves either. They out rebounded the Miami Heat by 28, and still lost by 11 points. Kevin Love scored on his own basket (Via: @cjzero)...

 .. And Lou Amundson airballs a freethrow.

Mismatch: Nikola Pekovic hid Norris Cole. (Via: @cjzero)

Potential: Gordan Hayward is probably the second to Kenneth Faried when it comes to pinning people's shots against the backboard during a fast break.

It's the Altitude: Speaking of Kenneth Faried, he doesn't have the best teammates. But to be fair, it is natural to run away from a guy that is about to spew his guts.

Taste your own medicine: Gerald Henderson did his impression of Dwight's overrated Superman Dunk on the creator himself.
