The Pacers didn't have Victor Oladipo, but that didn't seem to matter and six Indiana players ended scoring in double digits. Bojan Bogdanovic led the way with 21 points, while Myles Turner and Thaddeus Young each contributed 12 points coming off the bench. Most of the scoring damage came off the bench, though. Domantas Sabonis and Aaron Holiday each had 19 points, while Doug McDermott added 12 points. Ricky Rubio was by far the best player on Utah and he did an admirable job of filling the stat sheet since he ended the contest with 28 points (10-of-13 from the field) but also added six assists, four rebounds and three steals. Rudy Gobert had 12 points with 11 rebounds, and Jae Crowder added 14 off the bench. Donovan Mitchell struggled and only finished with seven points.

On Wednesday, Nov. 14, Julius Randle put up a stinker of a performance in a seven-point loss to the Timberwolves, scoring just three points on 1-of-4 shooting in 14 minutes. Since then, however, the Pelicans' sixth man has been on an absolute tear, and his showing in Monday's blowout win over the Spurs has capped off a brilliant three-game stretch. Randle played just 25 minutes off the bench against San Antonio, but he still managed to post a triple-double of 21 points, 14 rebound and 10 assists while shooting 9-of-13 from the field. Now, in the three games since his three-point performance, Randle is averaging 20.3 points, 11.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game while shooting a scorching 24-of-36 (66.7 percent) from the field. What may be most impressive, however, is that Randle has done it while playing just over 27 minutes per game.

Sacramento's youth movement was on full display in Monday's win over the Thunder in OKC. Sophomore point guard De'Aaron Fox, despite shooing just 1-of-10 from the field, made an impact by dishing out 13 assists. Rookie big man Marvin Bagley III also stood out, scoring 15 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and blocking three shots. Perhaps most impressive, though, was a team-high 25 points from shooting guard Buddy Hield. All three under-25 players made major contributions to the Kings' win on Monday. For Oklahoma City, former MVP Russell Westbrook led the way with 29 points and 13 rebounds. His team-best numbers came after many expected he would miss Monday's game due to a lingering ankle injury and the birth of his twin daughters. Westbrook, however, played, and was one of two Thunder players to eclipse 25 points on the night. The other was All-Star wing Paul George, who finished with 27 points and hit a late-game three-pointer to cut the Thunder deficit to just two.
