Wednesday, October 27 (ET) – Best game, highlight, performance of the night and top fantasy performers

An entertaining 10-game slate on Wednesday slate provided plenty of action. Here's the best of it all with the best game, top highlight and most notable performances from the slate.

Game of the Night

The 0-4 Oklahoma City Thunder were down by 26 points in the second quarter against a Los Angeles Lakers squad without LeBron James.

Then, in the second half, the young team outscored the most experienced team in the league 67-43 to secure their first victory of the season.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 27 points, nine rebounds and five assists while rookie Josh Giddey recorded 18 points and 10 assists, making him the third-youngest player ever to record double-digit assists.

Highlight of the Night

With just 1.4 seconds on the clock, Harrison Barnes catches and knocks down the game-winning three at the buzzer in Phoenix.

Performance of the Night

Plenty of good ones to choose from but the reigning Finals MVP - Giannis Antetokounmpo - was the pick of the top performers on Wednesday night.

He recorded his second career game with at least 40 points, 15 rebounds and five assists, while the rest of the NBA has only combined for two such games in the last 40 seasons.

Despite the dominant showcase, Antetokounmpo didn't receive enough support from his teammates and couldn't stop the team from losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves, who had three players scoring at least 25 in Anthony Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell.
