Ben Simmons - Philadelphia 76ers

Joel Embiid collected a nice double-double of 31 points and 13 rebounds. Simmons' double-double was 20 points and 11 rebounds, but he also had nine assists. Add in the fact he filled the stat sheet with three blocks and a steal in his team's dominant win Tuesday night.

Klay Thompson - Golden State Warriors

Both Thompson and Curry went for 31 points each in the Warriors' 142-111 win over Denver. However, Thompson did it on 13-of-19 shooting, including a 5-of-8 three-point range. He also collected three rebounds, gave an assist, and stole the ball three teams in the win.

Trae Young - Atlanta Hawks

He was looking like the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year earlier this season until a guy named Luka Doncic took off. That said, Young still has a great future ahead of him in the league. On Tuesday, he had 24 points, 11 assists, and six rebounds in a 142-126 win against the visiting Thunder.
