The Round Up - December 30th, 2012.

Stats Rundown:

Not the greatest line up of games on (Football) Sunday nights. Here are some things of note.

Last Big Standing: As the only real offensively skilled center left in the NBA, Al Jefferson proves to us why it worked before. He had 30 points (13 of 22 shooting), 8 rebounds, 2 assists, and 4 blocks to fall as another victim of the best team in the west.

Wade 2.0: After the criticism that Monta Ellis received for putting himself into the same category as Dwyane Wade, he shut everyone up. However, his 30 points (12 of 22), 4 rebounds and 9 assists performance would be for nothing in the 2 point loss to the Detroit Pistons. Poor Monta couldn't have it all.

Career First: DeMarcus Cousins got his first NBA triple double with 12 points (4 of 12), 10 rebounds and 10 assists. He must be auditioning for the Boston Celtics, because he never passes.

Little Man: At 5'9" Isiah Thomas can do a lot of things, especially to a struggling Boston Celtics team. He went for 27 points on 15 shots, 4 rebounds and 5 assists in place of the injured Aaron Brooks, who usually takes the starting position.

Long distance: Caron Butler was a perfect 6 for 6 from behind the arc to add to his total 29 points in another Clippers victory. This extends the winning steak to 17 and makes his team undefeated in the month of December (16-0). Which has only been done by 3 other teams in the entire 67 years of NBA Basketball.

Suggestive: I don't know what they are doing, I just know that Richard Jefferson is too old for whatever this is. (Via: @JazzSMangat)


Rejection x2: Thomas Robinson will not allow Jeff Green to have any points.

Lob City: We have seen this a million times. Please excuse me for making do with a highlight-less NBA night. At least DeAndre Jordan is having fun.
