In case you missed the action from tonight's games here's a recap with the top performers, best game, top highlight and the final scores.

Game of the Night

The upstart Thunder came back from 19 points down to beat the Lakers for the second time already this season, 107-104.

Led by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the upstart Thunder came back to defeat the Lakers for the second time this season. SGA finished with 28 points, including a clutch 3-pointer late in the fourth from the logo that gave the Thunder a six-point lead with just over a minute to play.

Teammate Kenrich Williams said post-game: "I wasn't ready for that shot, for him to shoot that. Anybody else, I would have said something, but for Shai I'm cool with that."

Australian Josh Giddey had a quiet night scoring, finishing with five points, adding eight rebounds and eight assists.

The Lakers Carmelo Anthony once again continued his excellent shooting streak, finishing the game with 21 points (5-for-10 from distance). Russell Westbrook had a chance to send the game into overtime at the buzzer but missed his attempt.

Highlight of the Night

Who else can watch Trae Young highlights all day?

Young threw this sweet assist off the backboard to Clint Capela which was, unfortunately, the highlight of the night for the Hawks as they lost to the Jazz. Young finished with 21 points and seven assists.

Performance of the Night

Jordan Clarkson had one of these coming.

Struggling to start the season, Clarkson exploded against the Atlanta Hawks to lift the Jazz to a big road win that improves the team to a league-best 7-1 record.

Clarkson was scorching, pouring in 30 points on 10-for-19 shooting while also adding four rebounds and three assists.

25 of the 30 came in the second half in a slump-busting outburst for last year's Sixth Man of the Year.
