The Round Up - December 28th, 2012.

Stats Rundown

Ciao, my people of Italy or Denver Nuggets fans or Fantasy owners. You would be glad to hear that Danilo Gallinari has ended his cold shooting streak recently and just got a career high 39 points (14 of 23 shooting), 8 rebounds and 3 assists in the 34 minutes he played against the Dallas Mavericks.

Honorable Mention: To Tony Parker's 31 points (11 of 19), 5 rebounds, 10 assists and 2 steals against one of their Texas rivals, the Houston Rockets.

The Chosen One: Is there still any doubt that LeBron James is the best NBA player in world? This man had 35 points (15 of 22, 68 FG%), 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 6 steals and a block in a disappointing loss to the Detroit Pistons. With this line, he joins Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Charles Barkley to ever post those numbers in the past 25 years. Impressed yet? How about taking a look at his shot chart.

Ridiculous.

Boards: Kenneth "The Manimal" Faried grabbed 19 rebounds (7 Offensive) and scored 11 points in the blowout win over the Dallas Mavericks.

Rookie Watch: Anthony "Fear The Brow" Davis shows us why he was picked first overall, 25 points (11 of 20), 9 rebounds and 3 blocks against the Toronto Raptors.

Time Machine User: Kobe Bryant was short 3 points to save his 10 game streak of 30 points+, but he got his points in an efficient manner, he shot 9 for 18 from the field and had 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in the victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Block Party V.I.P.: Tim Duncan's 2 blocks in the win over the Houston Rockets, gets him the 8th spot on the NBA all-time block list with 2, 543. The old man also had 30 points (13 of 20), and 5 rebounds.

Wig-Out: Cleveland Cavaliers fans all donned a Anderson Varejao's Sideshow Bob wig, because apparently his hair has it's own day.


Missed Opportunity: Greivis Vasquez missed out on his first triple career by a single rebound. He finished with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 14 assists. Just so you know he had 9 rebounds in the third and did not get a single one even though they went into overtime against the Toronto Raptors, who surprisingly pulled out a victory in a close game.

Turning Tides: It was a werid day in the NBA, the Washington Wizards beat the Orlando Magic to snap the 8 game losing streak. The Detroit Pistons tooks down the reigning NBA Champions, Miami Heat. The Sacramento Kings defeated the New York Knicks with a game winning three and did I mention that the Raptors won a close game?

Don't Call it a Come Back: The Los Angeles Clippers came back from a 19 point deficit against the Utah Jazz in the second half to extend their winning streak to 16.

Highlights

Soarin': Thaddeus Young receives the greatest assist handed out by the great Kwame Brown. #NeverForget.


Embarrassed: Chris Copeland, a 6 foot 9 rookie gets his lay up attempt pinned against the back board by a 6 foot Aaron Brooks. Maybe dunk it next time?


Game Winner: This was James Johnson's first made three of the season, and it could not have come in a better time. Somewhere, Brad Miller is proud to have his number on JJ's chest.
