The Round Up - January 4th, 2013.

Stats Rundown

It was crazy night in the association, tons of close games and even more game winners. Speaking of which, Kyrie Irving went for 33 points (10 of 21 shooting, 3 of 4 from three), 5 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals, 3 blocks and the game winning shot to add another loss into the Charlotte Bobcats' record. 

Honorable Mention: To Chris Paul's 30 points (11 of 25), 6 rebounds, 13 assists and 2 steals in the battle of Los Angeles. Dude was unstoppable, and basically did this to the Lakers' "Defense" all night.

Boards: DeMarcus Cousins shows off his versatility, he had 31 points on 18 shots, 20 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in the extinction of the Toronto Raptors. A change of scenery might turn him into an All Star caliber player.

Block Party: It was Spanish night and Marc Gasol doesn't want anything to go wrong. He swatted away 8 basketballs that came close and finished with 12 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals to go with a 2 point loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Handshake Game Proper: Kevin Durant asks for a high five, you give a high five, not a fist. Silly Westbrook. Good job on your 27 points, and 5 assists. Hitting 4 for 4 from the three was not bad either. (Via: @dailythunder)
Time Machine User: Kobe Bryant doesn't let a stupid thing like age get in his way. If he wants to win, his body will have to respect him and work properly. However his amazing 38 points (15 of 25), 3 assists and 5 steals performance would once again be a wasted effort. At least he did this to Chris Paul.

Sucks that Chris Paul ended up getting the best of him by embarassing the Black Mamba with an array of dribble moves. The Lakers were lucky Kobe scored 16 of their 31 points in the 4th quarter to keep this game close.

Band of Struggle (Faces): They all must be wondering why they were even close to beating the Clippers, because I am just as shocked. (Screenshots via: @cjzero, @netw3rk, @jose3030)

Tyler ELbrough-ed: Kevin Garnett was just really tired. By the way, remember when I said that the Celtics would blow out the Pacers because I wrote about them earlier. It happened. Thanks for nothing. (My piece is still relevant though.)

Rookie Watch: Bradley Beal is the future of the Washington Wizards and rightfully so. He got 24 points (10 of 19), 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals against the Brooklyn Nets.

10 More Minutes: If you were looking for an exciting game that took forever to finish, you can go watch the Brooklyn Nets play the Washington Wizards because it is totally worth your time (Nope). This game went into double overtime thanks late heroics from players of both teams. Nene brought the game to overtime with a sweet hook shot. Bradley Beal took it to a second overtime with a 3 pointer. And Joe Johnson ended it all with a signature Iso-Joe game winner.

Randy Wittman is a man that has lost all hope.

I'll be there: Tom Thibodeau was just trying to help, LeBron had other things in mind.

Peek-a-Bull: I love you too, Derrick Rose.  (Via: @amandakaschube)

Storm Troopers: It was Star Wars night in Detriot, and Al Horford is really excited. (Via: SBNation)


Trick-Tricks: Monta Ellis have it all.

Lob Air-geles Clippers: It is pretty unfair to play against a basketball team that can legitimately fly.

Don't go too crazy.
