Monday night’s slate of NBA games were filled with huge performances from some of the game’s best players. With 7 games on last night, there was plenty of opportunity for stand-out games.

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

1. Damian Lillard, Portland Trailblazers (38 Pts, 3 Ast, 2 Reb)

While the numbers may not immediately jump out at you, Damian Lillard made 8 three-pointers in the first half and finished with 11 total, tying his career high. Lillard didn’t even need the fourth quarter as the Blazers cruised to a victory over Minnesota.

2. Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks (38 Pts, 11 Reb, 8 Ast,)

Luka Doncic continues to put up big numbers against every opponent he faces. He’s an MVP candidate for a reason and his near 40-point triple-double last night is emblematic of how he is the engine for the Mavericks.

3. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City Thunder (42 Pts, 2 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl)

Shai Gilegeous-Alexander has been playing like a top-10 player all season. He’s become undguardbale and has the Thunder is competitive games night-in and night-out. His 42-point game wasn’t enough to keep pace with Doncic as the Thunder fell short 121-114.

4. Kevin Durant, Brooklyn Nets (30 Pts, 9 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk)

Kevin Durant is having an under-appreciated season for the Brooklyn Nets. He’s consistently putting up big games for a team that needs it. The Nets are 8-2 in their last ten games and Kevin Durant is a huge part of that.

5. Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers (25 Pts, 9 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl)

Last night was the first all season Kawhi Leonard looked like his old self. Against the Boston Celtics shot 10-12 from the field and led the Clippers to a blowout win. It’s nice to see him back healthy and being the caliber of player everyone knows he can be.

Honorable Mentions:

Bam Adebayo, Miami Heat (22 Pts, 17 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk)

Tyus Jones, Memphis Grizzlies (22 Pts, 1 Reb, 11 Ast, 3 Stl)

Spencer Dinwiddie, Dallas Mavericks (20 Pts, 10 Ast, 7 Reb)

Rudy Gobert, Minnesota Timberwolves (16 Pts, 20 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl)
