We have great games last night and even better stat lines.
It was a very hard to select top 5 NBA performances since the season opener, but we have to rank them.
Individual performances will be selected subjectively following deep data dives and highlights by every player.
Myles Turner - 30 points, 16 rebounds, 4 blocks, 2 steals, 1 assist with 13-19 FG
Russell Westbrook - 32 points, 12 rebounds, 9 assists with 11-21 FG
DeMar DeRozan - 40 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal with 17-27 FG
5. LeBron James - 19 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists, 1 block with 9-14 FG
King James didn't let the ring ceremony take his focus away from the task at hand. He delivered a triple-double in a blowout win against the Knicks in high fashion with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists in 32 minutes.
4. Kawhi Leonard - 35 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 5 steals with 10-21 FG
Kawhi Leonard gave a convincing performance Tuesday on why he was named All-NBA 1st team. He's the undisputed new leader of the Spurs in this post-Duncan era. He posted a career high with 35 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 steals. He'll be looking to defend his title as the reigning 2 time DPOY.
3. James Harden - 34 points, 17 assists, 8 rebounds, 1 steal with 9-19 FG
"Getting to the Point". Harden becomes the 5th player in history to put up these numbers joining Magic, Michael, Tim, and B-Diddy. He won't be denied All-NBA after this season as the point.
2. Damian Lillard - 39 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists with 13-20 FG
Damian Lillard might make Steve Kerr look like Nostradamus. Kerr picks Lillard as his MVP favorite and Dame didn't disappoint. He dropped 39 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists in the home opener versus Utah. It's going to be fun to see if he can follow that up against CP3 and the Clippers tomorrow.
1. Anthony Davis - 50 points, 16 rebounds, 5 assists, 7 steals, 4 blocks with 17-34 FG
Although the game ended in a loss. Anthony returned with s vengeance staking his claim as the best power forward in the league with an epic performance. He became the first player to post 50 points, 17 rebounds, 5 assists, 7 steals and 4 blocks. It'll be another 50 years before we see a game like this.
