The Round Up - January 5th, 2013.

Stats Rundown
(Mark J. Terill/AP Photo) Blake Griffin makes really ugly in game faces.
The Point God has landed on Earth and all we can do is watch. Chris Paul went for 27 points on 10 of 12 shooting, knocking down 5 of his 6 three point attempts, to go with his 9 assists, 5 rebounds and a steal in the shaming of the Golden State Warriors. Oh, and he did all that in 28 minutes.

Honorable Mention: Despite the loss to the Houston Rockets, Kyrie Irving was an unstoppable force. The sophomore carried his dead beat of a team with 30 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 steals. He was so good, we can just forget that the 8 turnovers ever happened.

Dishin': Rajon Rondo isn't taking my criticism too well, he looks like he is try to stop at nothing to prove me wrong. Well, if a triple double doesn't rid the doubters, I don't know what can. His 14 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 3 steals shot the Atlanta Hawks out of the sky.

Time Machine User: Paul Pierce came out of half time on a mission, he vanquished the 15 point lead the Atlanta Hawks had in the first, and led a 33-9 third quarter that would later decide the game. The Truth had 26 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists without any athleticism, Paul Pierce basketball never makes sense.

Twinsies: Wesley Matthew and Nicholas Batum of the Portland Trail Blazers scored 26 points each in the victory over the Minnestoa Timberwolves. They combined for 52 points on only 26 shots.

The Orlando Magic starting back court of Jameer Nelson and Arron Affalo both scored 29 points in the tough loss to the New York Knicks. It takes a lot more to outscore Carmelo Anthony when he drops 40 points (14 of 29 shooting) and grabs 6 rebounds against you. Also doesn't help that you let him score 16 points in the 4th quarter.


Transition Games: I think Andre Iguodala has a pretty good grasp on Denver's high octane offensive concept.

The Man with Two First Names: Just a heads up, Paul George is really good at dunking.

Lob Airgeles Clippers: Isn't it fun to play with a guy that can catch anything you throw up. Must be great, but have you ever thought about how the basketball rim feels. It must be in pain from the constant pounding (Haha).
