The Round Up - January 21st, 2013.

Stats Rundown

Honorable Mention: To Al Horford's 28 points on 12 of 20 shots, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks in the victory over the injury riddled Minnesota Timberwolves.

Battle of the Boroughs: Carmelo Anthony's hot shooting start in the beginning of the season has begun to cool off, as he shoots 11 of 29 from the field for only 29 points (27 by the end of third). Joe Johnson on the other hand has reversed his poor shooting, although not shown in this game as he goes 8 of 20 for 25 points. The Nets somehow pulled out with the victory with a whopping 19 turnovers to the Knicks' 5. I guess a little Iso-Joe magic can be good for the team.

Cooked: The Los Angeles Clippers entered into the Oracle Arena to quite surprise. Even though Blake Griffin went off for 26 points (11 of 18), 13 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks, the Clippers would lose due to a surprising lack of scoring from the others. Meanwhile on the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry successfully landed 6 of his 8 bombs to score 28 points on 9 of 14 shooting, to add to his 6 dimes. Curry completely took over the game in the 4th quarter going 4 of 4 from the three and tearing up the defense with some ridiculous passes.

Brand New: With the return of John Wall, the Washington Wizards have morphed into a real NBA team. Nene, the man with no last name led the way with a season-high 24 points on 10 of 17 shooting, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. He scored 17 points in just the first 9 minutes of the game. Poor J.J. Hickson was left helpless and should really consider suing the Brazilian for abuse. Things don't always stay goodthough, because Nene would later get his face in one of Damiam Lillard's dunks.

For the Blazers, Nicholas Batum got his first career triple-double, 12 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. But none of that matters because Jordan "Not Jamal" Crawford would score all of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, including the buzzer beating three pointer at the end to win the game.

One Man Team: The Houston Rockets vs. Charlotte bobcats was basically a James Harden vs. Kemba Walker one on one game where the crowd happened to be really close. Despite shooting a horrid 5 of 20 from the field, James Harden finished with 29 points (thanks to 21 free throw attempts), 7 rebounds and 7 assists. While Kemba Walker had a career high 35 points on 6 of 7 from downtown, 3 rebounds and 5 assists in the loss. The Rockets snapped a 7 game losing streak and the Bobcats added another home loss to make it their 15th straight, which is the longest streak since the 93-94 Mavs, who had 19 straight.

Time Machine User: After giving up a 17 point lead to the Philadelphia 76ers, the San Antonio Spurs managed to hold off the comeback with Tim Duncan's 24 points (10 of 17), 17 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals. The game wouldn't have been so close if Coach Pop wasn't so adamant about staying with his bench, no matter how close the game was. The Sixers have not won a back to back game since November.

Raining Day: The New Orleans Hornets stung the Sacramento Kings from behind the arc, shooting 12 of 25 on 48 percent. A large part is due to Ryan Anderson, who had 27 points (7 of 14 from the three), 6 rebounds and 2 assists in the win. As for the Kings, DeMarcus Cousins dropped a game-high 29 points (11 of 17) and grabbed 13 boards.

Matching Suits: Looks like both Craig Sager and Wilt Frazier planned to wear their couch tonight.

Fancy: Ricky Rubio is still unable to do a normal pass, which is awesome.

Fancy Part 2: Not to be outdone, Jarrett Jack does a nifty pass of his own.
