Game of the Night

A game between two of the top teams in the East stuck to its billing by being the most competitive game of the slate.

In the end, after seven lead changes and eight ties, the Wizards came out on top and thus avenged their defeat to the Heat in Miami a couple of days ago.

Highlight of the Night

Last year's No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Edwards with his first 'Dunk of the Year' submission for the 2021-22 season.

Performance of the Night

There were plenty of notable performances on Saturday night but the reigning Finals MVP walks away with the best one.

A monster 30-20 double-double to go along with five assists, three blocks and two steals in just 30 minutes of action in the Bucks 117-108 win over the Orlando Magic.

With this performance, he became the first player to record at least 30 points, 20 rebounds and five assists in less than 35 minutes since 1959.
