Last night’s slate of NBA games had huge performances, including one that we will talk about for years. With 10 games on the slate, there were a lot of big games from some of the game’s best.

Here are the top performances from last night:

1. Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks (60 Pts, 21 Reb, 10 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk)

Luka Doncic’s performance last night will be remembered for a very long time. A 60-point triple-double including a game-tying shot to send the game to overtime is something only seen in video games. It was the first 60-point 20-rebound triple-double in NBA history.

2. Joel Embiid, Philadelphia 76ers (48 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 3 Blk)

If not for Doncic’s ridiculous game, Embiid would be number on this list with a near 50-point explosion over the Wizards. The 76ers still came up short, but Embiid has been absolutely dominant of late.

3. Julius Randle, New York Knicks (29 Pts, 18 Reb, 4 Ast)

Julius Randle has found his all-star form this season, consistently putting up huge numbers for the Knicks. It wasn’t enough against the Mavs, but Randle has been a beast night in and night out for New York.

4. Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors (36 Pts, 9 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk)

Pascal Siakam is on a monster tear right now. Less than a week after scoring 52 against the Knicks, he scores 36 against the Clippers in a tough loss. Siakam is solidifying himself as one of the best players in the NBA.

5. Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics (38 Pts, 8 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk)

Jayson Tatum has done this basically all season. He’s one of the best scorers in the NBA and these numbers are becoming normal for him as he seeks to win his first MVP.

Jaylen Brown, Boston Celtics (39 Pts, 1 Reb, 2 Ast, 3 Stl)

James Harden, Philadelphia 76ers (26 Pts, 7 Reb, 13 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk)
