NBA

There were plenty of great NBA games on Saturday (October 20) night, some of which came down to the final plays. Below are the top five performances that helped teams to get the big wins in the early NBA season!

1

Nikola Jokic - Denver Nuggets

Talk about perfection, or near perfection. Nikola Jokic was perfect from the floor, going 11-of-11. His only miss was a free throw in the game. Oh yeah, he ended up with a triple-double of 35 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists (plus four steals). What a game for the big guy in a Nuggets' win!

2

Blake Griffin - Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have quite the frontline. The other night, it was Andre Drummond taking a top player spot, and now it's Blake Griffin. 33 points, 12 rebounds, and five assists were on the menu for Griffin, in the 118-116 win over Chicago.
