Just five games on a Tuesday night but there was plenty of action and performances to look back on with plenty of marquee teams taking the floor like the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and the Miami Heat.
In case you missed the action from the slate, here's a recap with the top performers, best game, top highlight and the final scores.
Game of the Night
Surprisingly, the game of the night was the schedule-capper in Los Angeles. After getting blown out a couple of days earlier, the young and inexperienced Rockets put up more of a fight against the veteran Lakers.
LeBron James put up 30 points, 10 assists while Russell Westbrook nearly recorded a triple-double as the Lakers improved to 5-3 but only after escaping with a 119-117 win.
In a game with 13 lead changes and eight ties, the Rockets were led by 24 points from Jalen Green and a 26-point, 16-rebound double-double from Christian Wood.
Highlight of the Night
When should we stop getting surprised by this? Year 19 at age 36, LeBron James goes coast-to-coast and throws down the thunderous two-handed slam.
