Game of the Night

The veteran Los Angeles Lakers, without LeBron James, survived plenty of fourth-quarter drama including a Rajon Rondo ejection and multiple late technicals to defeat the Charlotte Hornets in overtime.

Carmelo Anthony exploded for 29 points off the bench, Russell Westbrook recorded a triple-double with 17 points, 14 assists, 12 rebounds while Anthony Davis stuffed the stat sheet with 32 points, 12 rebounds, five blocks, four assists and three steals.

These contributions helped the Lakers overcome LaMelo Ball's triple-double of 25 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists.

Highlight of the Night

A crazy thrilling back-and-forth final minute ends with Karl-Anthony Towns' high-arching buzzer-beater from long distance that forced overtime

Timberwolves went on to lose the game in overtime but those extra five minutes wouldn't have been played out if it wasn't for KAT's shot.

Performance of the Night

No debate here. Stephen Curry.
