SGA, Giannis, LeBron & Other Superstars Pour In Big Nights Across NBA as Some Teams Finding Their Strides

The first month of the NBA season is in the books, and a busy weekend on the hardcourt produced a handful of standout performances. Eight teams are riding win streaks of three games or more, including the Celtics and Kings on six-game heaters. On this Monday morning, we’ll pack a weekend full of games into the top-5 performances, including three 40-pieces, Kevin Durant’s back-to-back 39-point nights, and a vintage 37 from LeBron that included game-winning free throws. That man simply does not age. NBA rewind:
