NBA's top 5 player performances from Friday, October 26

These five NBA stars came up big for their teams in Friday's NBA games.

Each night of the NBA brings some interesting new players out of the woodwork who are major contributors. That was the case on Friday night, in wins for several teams, including the Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings. Below are the five players who stood out most from Friday's NBA results.

1

Kevin Durant - Golden State Warriors

It's hard to say if KD's performance on Friday versus the Knicks was an audition or a "now you see me, now you don't" act. Durant torched the team that wants to sign him next year by scoring 41 points, grabbing nine boards, and dishing out five assists in an MSG clinic!

2

Kemba Walker - Charlotte Hornets

Kemba Walker has continued to impress during the early part of the season. The All-Star has been shooting threes at a great rate, with only Steph Curry ahead of him in attempts. On Friday, Walker nailed five of them, and finished with 30 points to help the Hornets defeat the Bulls, 135-106.

3

Montrezl Harrell - Los Angeles Clippers

Harrell isn't a player you see listed as a top performer every night, but Friday was special. The Clippers' reserve scored a career-high 30 points off the bench. L.A. defeated Houston, 133-113. That helped the L.A. Clippers improve to 3-2 for their young season.

4

Kyle Lowry - Toronto Raptors

While many players are achieving double-doubles nightly, with points and boards, Lowry's doing it with a helping hand. The Raptors are a perfect 6-0, right now, thanks to Lowry's 20 points and 12 assists. Kawhi Leonard added 21 points, as the All-Star duo looked solid against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night.

5

Nemanja Bjelica - Sacramento Kings

Just like Harrell, Nemanja Bjelica isn't a household name, or one that too many are saying within the NBA world. However, he hit six three-pointers as part of his 26 points in a Sacramento Kings' win on Friday night. Bjelica also had 12 rebounds and three assists to help the Kings even their record at 3-3.
