The Round Up - December 5th, 2012.

Stats Rundown:

What a weird day in the NBA, the best players were the losers last night. This whole week of NBA hasn't been great, not a lot of  two +0.500 team playing each other (except for Thunder vs. Nets). And even though we get the Knicks against the Heat today, Melo might be out with an injury. Boo.

Boards: Tyson Chandler dethrones Anderson Varejao from his usual honor with 17 rebounds, 18 points (8 of 10 from the field) and the win over the Charlotte Bobcats Hornets.

On the other hand, Andy tied Kevin Love for the 10th straight game with 15 or more rebounds, which is the longest streak in the last 10 years.

Dishin': Kyle Lowry is the best Raptors point guard of all time, 34 points, 11 assists and 5 rebounds in the loss to the Sacramento Kings.

Mr. Perfect: Ty Lawson went 5 for 5 from behind to arc to finish with 32 points, 7 assists and 5 steals in the loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

Rookie Watch: Why do I even bother to do this when Damian Lillard is playing, just another 23 points to go with his 3 rebounds and 6 assists in the loss to the Indiana Pacers.

Join the Club: Kobe Bryant (29 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals) becomes the youngest player to join the 30,000 point club, ironically he did it against the team that drafted him. Boy, are the Hornets Pelicans sad.

Bro Love: Stop it, not in front of the camera dawg. (Via: @cjzero)

Lob City: If you missed the Mavs and Clippers game, you missed a real life 48 minutes of NBA JAM.

In with the New: New Clipper greets the Old Clipper.

Chub Flub: Fatty Lamar Odom blows a lay up in the worst way. He must still feel like he is in debt to the Dallas Mavericks.

Gross: Carmelo's finger must have spewing bloof out of his finger for a veteran like Jason Kidd to react in this manner. (Via: @cjzero)

Not in my house: The Bobcats don't like it when you get too close to their basket. Commence the finger wag.

#STARER: J.R. Smith stood by his hash tag, and stared at nothing for a really long time after hitting the game winner.

SHEEEEEDDDD: It takes alot of effort for Kurt Thomas to get up, so if he did, he is either getting his 5 minutes of playing time, or really excited for something. Too bad that's not how Sheed feels, your step back fade away to win the game does not impress a man of his standards. (Via:@johnschuhmann)

Foot Note: I know I am a little bit behind on the games, but the Clipper vs. Jazz should be up in a few hours. The Thunder vs. Nets game will also be up a bit later. The games last night were horrible, besides the Knicks and Bobcats game, nothing else deemed entertaining. There weren't anything note worthy, so I decided to summarize it in the following paragraph.

Charlotte's sole strategy was to double Melo, and force a lot of New York three pointers. It worked, NY shot 42 percent from the field (31 percent from three). The game got even closer when Melo left the game with a lacerated finger thanks to Chris Copeland for not catching his team's superstar (With or without Melo, you are not going to see more playing time. In fact, you only get playing time because of Melo are killing other teams, sucks for you). With 5 seconds left, tied up at 98, the Bobcats turned the ball over (Michael Kidd-Gilchrist) and J.R. Smith hit the game winner.
