5 of the best NBA player performances from Saturday, November 17

These five NBA stars had some of the most impressive stats in their team's recent games.

On Saturday (Nov. 17), NBA fans saw some amazing performances. In particular, the Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker left his heart out on the court, scoring a new career-high. Unfortunately, he also had his heart broken on a game-winner by the Sixers' Jimmy Butler. There were also plenty of other star performances, so here are five of the best from Saturday's slate!

1

Kemba Walker - Charlotte Hornets

Walker is the heart and soul of the Hornets and that was especially true on Saturday. The All-Star guard had 60 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. It was a new career-high, but Kemba and the Hornets would fall 122-119 after a Jimmy Butler buzzer-beating three.

2

Anthony Davis - New Orleans Pelicans

It's becoming a nightly thing, but that's almost an expectation with this guy. On Saturday, Anthony Davis had 40 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists to lead the Pelicans to a 125-115 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Joel Embiid - Philadelphia 76ers

Butler was tonight's hero in Charlotte, but Embiid put in work all night long too. The big man racked up 33 points, 11 rebounds, and three assists as the Sixers stole the overtime win against Kemba and the Hornets.

4

Paul George - Oklahoma City Thunder

Russell who? In tonight's win by the Thunder over the Phoenix Suns, it was Paul George coming through. "PG13" had 32 points, 11 boards, and two assists in the 110-100 victory at Phoenix.

5

James Harden - Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets are starting to turn the corner it seems. Reigning NBA MVP James Harden scored 34 points, dished out eight assists, and collected four rebounds in a 20-point win against the Sacramento Kings.
