The Round Up - January 3rd, 2013.

Stats Rundown

Carmelo Anthony has yet struggled to score. He had 23 points on 9 of 20 shooting, 8 rebounds and 3 assists in the blow out victory over the San Antonio Spurs, who were on their 4th game in the last 5 nights. Way to schedule games, NBA.

Reversal: Both the San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks don't score a whole lot in the paint, due to their reliance on three point shooting. But for a team that has Tim Duncan and sneaky Tony Parker, you would think they score more than 12 points in the paint, let alone allowing the Knicks outscore them by 24. Which pretty much explains Coach Pop's face. (Via: @netw3rk)

No, it' not. It is just another Gary Neal play. 

Rookie Watch x Time Machine User: At age 38, Pablo Prigioni is the oldest NBA rookie, who found a retirement home in New York (It is funny, because the Knicks are old). He was huge off the bench last night, he dished out 9 assists and stole 3 basketballs in the victory. I actually have no idea how Pablo plays in his younger years in the Euroleague, but you get what I mean.

Little Man Comeback: J.J. Barea of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored 12 of his total 17 points in the 4th quarter to get the victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Baby Hair Records: Andre Miller scored his 15,000th point yesterday, becoming the 8th NBA player with 15,000+ points and 7,500 assists.

Weird Accident: Stephen Jackson injured his ankle when he fell on a waitress serving the the Mayor of New York. Coincidence or evil genius? Jackson did not return to the game, probably because Pop can use it as an excuse to rest him.

Fade Check: Iman Shumpert busts out the Gangnam Style on the bench because he heard it could cure injuries. (Via: @TheKnicksWall)
Tyson Squat: Tyson Chandler has mastered the art of AERObic exercises. I'm sorry.(Via: @TheKnicksWall)

Good Accidents: My "bad passes makes the best alley oops" theory stands.
