You Got Mail: LeBron James ties Karl Malone for the third longest streak of 20+ points games to start the season at 24. His 30 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists in the victory over the Utah Jazz extends his zero personal foul streak to 6.
Block Party: Robin Lopez's hair alone blocked 6 shots, the rest of body had 24 points (11 of 16) and 11 rebounds in the loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Rookie Watch: Future ROY, Damian Lillard got 25 points (7 of 13), 7 assists and the game clinching jumper against the struggling Phoenix Suns.
Time Machine User: World Class Chucker, Kobe Bryant scored 34 points on 41 shots (Made only 16), and somehow only got one free throw attempt. For fun, you can guess how many Kobe-WTF-ref faces made over the span of his 44 minutes of playing time. He also had 10 rebounds and 5 assists in the overtime victory against the Golden State Warriors.
Great Canadian: Steve Nash returns with a horrible haircut, but was soon forgiven after hitting the dagger to seal the win in overtime. He finished with 12 points (5 of 8 and perfect from the three) and 9 assists. Steve Nash makes basketball really fun and here's prove:
Bucked Up: No one on the Milwaukee Bucks had double digit points, except for Monta Ellis, who scored 37 points in the loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Please Come In: The Denver Nuggets were invited to score 78 of their total 110 points in Charlotte Bobcats' paint. I was told after the game, that the Bobcats were gracious hosts and the Nuggets would love to visit again.
Grinch Clutch: The Houston Rockets mascot got Salmonella. Yes, their mascot is a giant teddy bear. (Via: @talkhoops)
Unibrow Alert: There was a unibrow sighting in New Orleans. He was caught dunking backwards.
Ball on Goggles: Kirk Hinrich may I ask you how many successful blocks you average a game to make you believe that this would be effective in stopping a dunk? Your 0.never sure doesn't think so.
