Sunday night’s games were as exciting and entertaining as ever. The NBA has 7 games on deck and they did not disappoint.

These are the top performances from last night’s games:

Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers (53 Pts, 12 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Blk)

Joel Embiid is one of the most dominant forces in the game and last night showed just that. The big man shot 20 of 32 from the field and has scored over 38 points in three straight games. He might just be putting his name in the MVP conversation with his recent play.

Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers (34Pts, 15 Reb, 7 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk)

The Anthony Davis resurgence continued on Sunday, with Davis continuing to dominate any and every team in his way. He’s been huge for the Lakers' recent turnaround he led the way for their tight win over the Pistons.

DeMar DeRozan, Chicago Bulls (34 Pts, 13 Reb, 8 Ast)

DeMar DeRozan put up big numbers in a heart-wrenching overtime defeat to the Atlanta Hawks. The Bulls continue to struggle but DeRozan has been scoring at an elite level once again this season. If the Bulls are going to turn their season around, they’ll need more big performances like this one from him.

Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans (35 Pts, 8 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl)

Zion Williamson and the Pelicans are putting the NBA on notice. They are legit and ready now. Williamson led the Pels to another victory over the Suns and they are establishing themselves as one of the best teams in the NBA.

DeAndre Ayton, Phoenix Suns (28Pts, 12 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Blk)

With Devin Booker out, the Suns needed a big game from Ayton and he delivered. They came up short but Ayton showed his full repertoire making 13 of his 18-shot attempts. His touch and skill for a big man are matched by few.

Honorable Mentions:

LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers (35 Pts, 5 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl)

Bojan Bogdanovic, Detroit Pistons (38 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk)

RJ Barrett, New York Knicks(27 Pts, 9 Reb, 6 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk)

Paolo Banchero, Orlando Magic (20 Pts, 12 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk)

Terry Rozier, Charlotte Hornets (29 Pts, 8 Reb, 6 Ast
