1

James Harden - Houston Rockets

It's becoming commonplace for the reigning NBA MVP to take over the top performance, whenever he plays. That was the case on Monday night as he dropped a season-high 57 points against the Memphis Grizzlies. It was his third game scoring 50 points or more for the season, and his 17th straight game with at least 30 points!

2

Anthony Davis - New Orleans Pelicans

Just as monstrous a performance as Harden's, was the one the Pelicans' Anthony Davis had. Davis scored 46 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in his team's victory at the Los Angeles Clippers.

3

Rudy Gobert - Utah Jazz

Speaking of monsters in the middle, how about Utah's Rudy Gobert? On Monday night, he achieved a new career-high with 22 defensive rebounds. He'd finish with a game-high 25 rebounds and 18 points in Utah's win over Detroit.
