There were just 4 games on Thursday’s night slate of game, but that didn’t stop some of the game’s best from putting up big numbers.

Here are the top performances from Thursday’s games.

Tyler Herro, Miami Heat (41 Pts, 6 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk)

Tyler Herro has been on a tear, scoring 35+ points and hitting 9+ three-pointers in back-to-back games. Herro is the first player to hit 9+ three-pointers in consecutive games in NBA history. He’s been a go-to scorer for Miami and has carried them to two consecutive close wins they’ve needed.

Jordan Clarkson, Utah Jazz (39 Pts, 8 Reb, 2 Ast, 2 Stl)

Jordan Clarkson came up huge for the Jazz last night, scoring 39 points and hitting 7 three-pointers. Clarkson has always been a microwave scorer who’s almost unstoppable to stop once he has it going.

Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies (25 Pts, 10 Reb, 10 Ast, 1 Stl)

Ja Morant and the Grizzlies had a huge statement victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Morant’s triple-double propelled them 142-101. He continues to be the engine behind their success and they are now first in the Western Conference.

Zion Williamson, New Orleans Pelicans (31 Pts, 8 Reb, 8 Ast, 2 Blk)

Zion Williamson has led the Pelicans in this recent stretch that has the Pelicans in second place in the Western Conference. He’s an unstoppable force who overpowers just about everyone in his way.

Chris Paul, Phoenix Suns (15 Pts, 13 Ast, 7 Reb, 2 Stl,1 Blk)

Chris Paul has seemingly slowed down some this season but he’s still one of the best passers in the game along with being one of the smartest players in the league. Last night was another reminder of his cerebral play.

Honorable Mentions:

Jimmy Butler, Miami Heat (20 Pts, 10 Reb, 7 Ast, 4 Stl, 3 Blk)

CJ McCollum, New Orleans Pelicans (28 Pts, 6 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Blk)

Lauri Markkanen, Utah Jazz (31 Pts, 5 Reb, 3 Ast)
