Top Performances of the NBA Playoffs so Far

The NBA playoffs saw the first round get extended for some teams last night. One of the best individual performances of the playoffs so far took place in that game. Let’s look at it and some of the other top performances across the playoffs.

Tyrese Maxey Philadelphia 76ers

Maxey has had some nice games in the first round such as 33 and 35 points in the first two games. This game last night however was arguably the top performance in all of the playoffs so far. He finished the game with 43 points and nine assists. The real cherry on top was scoring 7 points in the final 26 seconds to force overtime when the 76er’s were down six points. They won eventually in overtime.

There were some very impressive games by Edwards in the four-game sweep Minnesota had over Phoenix but the final game was probably his best. He finished with 40 points and a massive dunk down the stretch over Kevin Durant to close this game out.

Jalen Brunson New York Knicks

Every game has been tough in this series. Brunson carried the Knicks to a win in game four when he scored 47 points and added 10 assists. The Knicks scored just 97 total points in this five-point win where Brunson scored nearly half of them.
