The Round Up - January 8th, 2013.

Stats Rundown

Brandon Jennings has been going all out for a big contract next season. The skinny point guard had 29 points on 9 of 15 shooting and shot 5 of 7 from downtown. He also grabbed 3 rebounds, dished out 9 assists and got the W against the Phoenix Suns.

Honorable Mention: To James Harden, and the sweet beard that helped him drop 31 points (11 of 19), snatch 6 boards and hand out 9 dimes in the victory over the injured Lakers. His 31 points last night, ties Mose Malone's Houston Rockets franchise record of 13 consecutive game with 25+ points. He is already breaking records in the his first season with the team, and you said he couldn't be a franchise player.

Boards: All Reggie Evans does is get rebounds, seriously he scored only 2 points. But grabbed a career high 23 rebounds in the 20 point victory for the Brooklyn Nets against the Philadelphia 76ers. There was even one point in the game where Reggie singlehandedly outrebounded the entire Sixers team.

Block Party: This is Larry Sander's house and the Phoenix Suns are not welcomed. He sent away 6 basketballs, while going off for 10 points, 8 rebounds and 2 steals for a well deserved self-applause.

But that was not even the block of the night.

Stupid Gerald Green always steals the spotlight.

Dishin': With his 10 assists against the Houston Rockets, Steve Nash has become the fifth player in NBA History to have 10,000 assists. Joining an elite class composed of John Stockton, Jason Kidd, Mark Jackson and Magic Johnson. Congratulations, Captain Canada.
Lakers "Defense": In the final 18 minutes of the Lakers vs. Rockets game, Houston scored 54 points on 64 percent shooting from the field. Yea, let's talk about their offense more.

Rookie Abuse: In his first start of the season, Robert Sacre got thoroughly embarrassed by James Harden. First he fell for the Beard's magic trick.

Then gave him a preview of his future life in the NBA.

Poor Robert, you will be back on the bench soon. That is where you belong and we all love you there.

Jesus ShutDOWNsworth: For the second time in his career, Ray Allen was held scoreless in a NBA game. He was 0 for 5 from the field and the last time he went without any points was in 1997, in his rookie year with the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Splits: I am not sure if that was actually on purpose, or Paul George was just trying to recover his dribble the entire time. Either way, he made himself look good doing it.
