The Round Up - February 5th, 2013.

Stats Rundown

German Knees: We all knew Kobe Bryant can't keep up the passing forever, his instinct to kill and shoot over any kind of defense played on him is too strong for Kobe to control. To keep up with it, he probably had to get maintenance for his artificial German engineered knees, which explains how he could have done this in his 17th season in the NBA.

The Brooklyn Nets starting back court of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson combined for only 26 points on 9 of 28 shooting. Fortunately, Brook Lopez carried them in his DC Comic book bag to keep the game close. The big man had 30 points (11 of 25), and 11 rebounds to make Pau Gasol look like a fool trying to guard him. Speaking of Pau, he left the game early in the fourth quarter, after feeling something pop in his foot. The status of his injury has not been reported, but he is expected to miss some games. The Lakers did not play exceptionally well, the Nets just weren't able to find buckets amongst the horrible defense played. If you are wondering, Dwight Howard is still out with a shoulder injury, his return has not been announced yet.

Not in my house:  The Indiana Pacers are rolling right now, they have extended their home game winning streak to 15 with the win over the Atlanta Hawks. Paul George led the team with a game-high 29 points (8 of 19), 5 rebounds and 4 assists. While Jeff Teague dropped 24 points and 8 assists for the Hawks.

Big Man Dish: Roy Hibbert is still useful sometimes.

Blast-Off: The Rockets destroyed the Warriors by 31 points and this is what happened.

Houston tied the NBA record for the most 3 point field goals made in a single game with 23, but no one with a red jersey made a three as far as Stephen Curry.

On the anniversary of Linsanity, Jeremy Lin went off for 28 points on 10 of 16 shooting and 9 assists. Maybe we will get another two good weeks from him, it definitely won't hurt their playoff push. I have more on this game later in the blog.

Don't Call it a Comeback: Yesterday, something very unusual happened. Samuel Dalembert, a back up defensive minded big man of the Milwaukee Bucks trended on Twitter. And it was not for getting dunked on, but actually for scoring a new career high. He came off the bench in the first half to score 21 points in 9 minutes. 9 MINUTES. After half time, he dropped another 14 points for a new career high 35 points on 17 of 21 shooting and 12 rebounds in 27 minutes. Despite his big game, the Denver Nuggets would comeback from a 17 point deficit thanks to Danilo Gallinari's 22 points (7 of 14), 6 rebounds and an insane Michael Jordan-esque lay up to ice the game (which I will dedicate another post to later on today). His tiny teammate, Ty Lawson also added 22 points, along with 7 assists.
