With 9 games on the slate last night, there was plenty of opportunity for some big performances. Some of the game’s biggest start showed out last night for their respective teams.

Here are the top performances from last night:

1. Domantas Sabonis, Sacramento Kings (28 Pts, 23 Reb, 7 Ast, 1 Stl)

Domantas Sabonis is a big reason for the King's success this season. His ability to pass and run offense has unlocked a bunch for the Kings' offense. He’s also one of the game’s best rebounders. Despite his big game, the Kings came up short.

2. Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors (38 Pts, 15 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl)

Pascal Siakam is having an all-NBA season thus far. He hit a layup to send the game into overtime against the 76ers, but the Raptors came up short. They are struggling mightily, but Siakam is doing everything he can to will them to victory.

3. Jonas Valanciunas, New Orleans Pelicans (37 Pts, 18 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl)

Jonas Valanciunas put up a monster game against the Bucks. A near 40-point 20-rebound game and 5 assists to go along with it. Valancuinas is one of the more under-appreciated players in the league.

4. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks (42 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Blk)

While Giannis Antetokounmp puts up numbers like this almost nightly, It’s still impressive and it can’t be taken for granted. The two-time MVP had a big game to lead the Bucks over the Pelicans.

5. Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks (37 Pts, 3 Reb, 13 Ast)

Trae Young had a big game to just squawk by the Orlando Magic. The Hawks are another squad that has struggled to find consistency. Young has also had an up-and-down season but maybe this is the game that helps turn things around.

Honorable Mentions:

Anthony Edwards, Minnesota Timberwolves (27 Pts, 13 Reb, 9 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk)

Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers (28 Pts, 11 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl)

Shai Gilegeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder (35 Pts, 2 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk)

LaMelo Ball, Charlotte Hornets (23 Pts, 5 Reb, 12 Ast)

De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings (37 Pts, 5 Reb, 2 Ast)
