The Round Up - January 9th, 2013.

Everything Chris Duhon does it gold. (Via: @cjzero)
The Lakers season summed in one .GIF.
Fact: The Lakers haven't won since last year and are tied for their worst 35-game start since the 1993-94 season. Trolling has never been more fun. Oh, and Kobe Bryant leads the NBA in most missed field goals now, he is at 15,296 bricks and counting.

Stats Rundown

Kyrie Irving should never take that mask off, he went for 33 points on 11 of 15 shooting, 4 assists, 3 steals and was 5 of 6 from the three, in feather plucking of the Atlanta Hawks. The sophomore scored 18 of his team's 28 points in the third quarter, who needs LeBron anymore.

Honorable Mention: To Brandon Jenning's 35 points (12 of 24), 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 of 10 shooting from the three. He scored 16 points in the third quarter and knocked down 4 three pointers in that stretch.

To Al Jefferson's 26 points (11 of 15 shooting because it is not that hard to score if you are only 4 feet away from the rim), 8 rebounds, and 2 assists to give Charlotte their 12 straight home loss.

Boards: The Manimal, Kenneth Faried was out for blood in the contest against the Orlando Magic. He scored 19 points (7 of 10), stole 2 basketballs, blocked also 2 basketballs and grabbed 19 rebounds (9 of which were offensive) in the victory.

Block Party: Larry Sanders is a party animal, his 7 blocks in the W over the Chicago Bulls gets him his 5th straight game with 4+ blocks, this is the longest streak by a Milwaukee Buck since Kareem Abdul Jabbar in 1973-74.

Dimes: Chris Paul the Point God is playing at a divine level, he had 19 points (8 of 13), 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 16 assists in the win against the Dallas Mavericks. Are you not impressed yet? Okay, how about learning that he was responsible for 57 of the Clippers' 99 points. Boom, that is the sound of your mind exploding.

Rookie Watch: Jared Sullinger is quickly maturing into one of Boston's secret weapons. The rookie has stepped up his play as of late and got the Celtics back on track as a playoff team. His 12 points, 16 rebounds and 3 assists were huge off the bench in the victory over the Phoenix Suns. Speaking of the bench, remember how I ripped them, yea they scored 47 of Boston's total 87 points last night.

Suicidal Behavior: Kendrick Perkins dug himself an early grave by stepping into the face of Nikola "The Human Meat Grinding Machine" Pekovic. (Via: @cjzero)
 Perk is so rude. I hope he knows that Nick Collison is better than him and deserves his minutes.

Framed: Andrei Kirilenko got called for a foul on Kevin Durant because he allowed the skinny swing man to push him into an opponent point guard that tried for a flop. (Via: @cjzero)
Sloppy Mess: There were a total of 38 turnovers in the Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Hornets game and neither team cracked 90 points. As you can imagine, it was not pretty.

Your Beardness: James Harden has broken Mose Malone's Rockets record of 13 consecutive games with 25+ points. 14 games in a row isn't easy, fortunately he had exactly 25 points to pass the record.


Advanced Fundamentals: Marc Gasol knows there are always more to just footwork, you got to fancy it up sometimes.

A Year Ago: This man was in the hospitalized for a life threatening heart surgery, since then, at least recently, he has been providing the Celtics valuable minutes off the bench and is occasionally dunking on everybody. R.I.P. Jermiane O'Neal.

Recovery: Dante Cunningham totally lost the ball on purpose to stuff his stats.

La Pistola: Ricky Rubio is truly a magician with the basketball.

This pass was even better, but his teammates always ruin it for him.
