Performance of the Night
Kevin Durant was quite the candidate but difficult to look past Spencer Dinwiddie.
The 6-5 guard posted a game-high points tally in just his second game back from an ACL injury just three games into last season. Despite missing key players like Bradley Beal, Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant, Dinwiddie scored eight in the final 2:17 of regulation that helped the Wizards force overtime against the Indiana Pacers.
Then, in the extra session, he scored or assisted on 10 of the team's 12 points which was key to the Wizards winning 135-134.
