The Round Up - January 6th, 2013.

Remember when Mike D'Antoni said the Lakers practiced defense for 30 minutes. It is coming back to bite him in the ass.
Stats Rundown

Kevin Durant A.K.A. Velvet Hoop A.K.A. Mr.Efficient got 22 points on 6 of 11 shooting, 7 rebounds and 7 assists in the victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Honorable Mention: To Alan Anderson's 27 points (10 of 14 shooting, 4 of 8 from three), 4 rebounds and 3 assists off the bench for the Toronto Raptors. You might want get familiar with this dude, because he can play.

Dishin': Tiny Ty Lawson dropped an easy 21 points on the Lakers' "defense," and handed out 10 assists while doing so.

Boards: Injured back or not, Dwight Howard scored 14 points (6 of 7), blocked 4 shots and tied his career high of 26 rebounds against the Denver Nuggets.

Time Machine User: Kobe Bryant is still solid at age 34, he had 29 points (11 of 26 shooting), 5 rebounds and 7 assists. He did everything he could (offensively) to win this game for the Lakers. With less than a minute to go, the Black Mamba knocked down a quick three to cut the Denver lead to 3. Then this happened:

After the Kobe slouch, he went back to the other side to hit a tough turn around three to make it to another one posession game, but unfortunately the foul game never went their way. Needless to say, he is not too happy.

You can't blame him though, because not only he set a franchise record with 17 straight games of 27+ points, he scored 18 of it in the fourth quarter. The rest of the Lakers only scored 4. 

Betrayal: Javale McGee will take every opportunity to dunk the ball, even if it means smashing it on his own teammates. Poor Andre Miller doesn't even know what was going on.


Copyright Infringement: Someone call Jamal Crawford and tell him that we have a case. We are going to sue Andre Iguodala for using his patented behind the back move in transition.

Skates: It is kind of unfair that Kevin Durant can be 6'10" and so smooth (velvet) at the same time.

Athletic Reptiles: Told you the Raptors can dunk, why doesn't anybody listen. Then again, he dunked on Serge Ibaka, who bites on everything.
