The Round Up - January 30th, 2013.

Stats Rundown
Via: @cjzero
Up-do: Michael Beasley must have taken my advice and stopped eating chicken tenders + fries before games. The man of many hair-dos came off the bench for a game-high 27 points on 12 of 20 shooting, 6 rebounds and 5 steals to end the Lakers' 3 game winning streak. The Lakers had a 13 point lead early the fourth quarter, but gave it up once Dwight Howard left the game after a shoulder injury. They gave up a 19-8 run to the Suns and remained winless on the road in 2013.

Not-So-Fun Fact: Steve Nash had only 2 assists in this game, which ties for the fewest he has ever delivered in a game.

Where is Kobe and what did you do with him? We now live in a world where Kobe rondos in transition. For shame.

Tiny Assassin: Tony Parker is holding it down for his Spurs in the absence of Tim Duncan. The French point guard had 22 points (9 of 10), 7 assists and 3 steals to take down the Charlotte Bobcats. This win in San Antonio is their 17th straight, which ties for the third longest streak in their franchise.

Energy Ball: In his first 9 minutes into the game, Nate Robinson came off the bench to score 14 points on 6 of 6 shooting for his total 24 points (9 of 11). He also handed out 4 assists, stole 3 basketballs and completed his first dunk since the 2010-2011 season in the victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Stacey King must be off the medication that helps keep his composure during Bulls games.

Rookie Watch: Anthony Davis went for 14 points (7 of 9), 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks in only 22 minutes of play against the Utah Jazz. The Utah would come out on top thanks to the Giant 2. Paul Millsap had 25 points and 10 rebounds. While Al Jefferson added 22 and 5.

Eat Your Words: After trash talking LeBron and the Heat up prior to the game, Reggie Evans would be the one that fails to back it up. Tied at 49 at halftime, the Heat came out of the third quarter to outscore the Nets, 36 to 14, and forced 8 turnovers. The Nets were so bad that Mario Chalmers was able to grab his own rebound on his ass. As you would have guessed, LeBron James's fingerprints were all over this game, he led his team with 24 points (10 of 18), 9 rebounds and 7 assists in the 20 point victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

Joe Johnson did kill off the last remaining Boshasaurus in the loss.

No Defense Necessary: When two teams with highest pace in league, Houston Rockets (1) and Denver Nuggets (3) play against each other, defense will be non existent. Jeremy Lin led the Rockets with 22 points (8 of 15), and 5 assists. His majestic facial bearing partner, James Harden got 21 points on 6 of 13 shooting, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. However, the efforts of the two were not enough to trump Danilo Gallinari's 27 points (10 of 17) and the late 17-0 run they allowed Denver.

Exhibit A of the non-existent defense.


Javale loves his Italian Food.

Boards: Blake Griffin got his 19th double double of the season last night with his 26 points (11 of 17) and 13 rebounds in the win over the injury riddled Minnesota Timberwolves.

Setting Records: Carmelo Anthony set a new Knicks franchise record with 20+ points in 30 straight games. Tyon Chandler dropped a team-high 21 points on 10 of 11 shooting, to go with his 7 blocks and 5 assists. For the Magic, J.J. Reddick has been hot off the bench lately, he had 29 points (9 of 14) in another loss for the Orlando Magic. More bad news, Glen Davis will be out for the season with a broken foot.

What is better than Iman Shumpert's hi-top fade? Children with Shumpert wigs, of course. (Via: @netw3rk)
Flocks: The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Toronto Raptors with help of their starting front court of Josh Smith, who went for 20 points (7 of 16), and 11 rebounds, as Al Horford chipped in for 22 points (10 of 15), 10 rebounds and 6 assists. There was a questionable no-call in this game that potentially lost the game for the Raptors. Down with 1 with 5 seconds left, after grabbing an offensive rebound off Alan Anderson's miss, DeMar DeRozan went back up for the win, but would miss the shot due to a foul that was unfortunately not called. The Raptors have now lost 10 games this season when tied or leading with 2 minutes left in the fourth. Maybe Rudy Gay can solve the problem.Or maybe the league can stop apologizing to the Raptors and do something about the refs.


Swats: Avery Bradley will not allow Isiah Thomas to deliver his Pizzas.

Fancy: Ricky Rubio still can not throw a normal pass to his teammates.
