The UEFA Champions League featured some powerful individual performances yesterday. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored four goals leading Paris Saint-Germain to an easy 5-0 victory over Anderlecht. Cristiano Ronaldo also put up a great performance as he scored both goals in Real Madrid's 2-1 victory over Juventus. There were plenty of NBA games on the Wednesday night schedule. Dwyane Wade had a great performance scoring 25 points in Miami's 108-95 victory over the Washington Wizards. Bradley beal also had 21 points in Washington's easy 101-82 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. These are The Shoes That Won Last Night.

Player: Gerald Wallace
Game: Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets

The Boston Celtics are expected to struggle this season after essentially breaking up the core of the roster and starting the rebuilding process. Gerald Wallace was acquired by the Celtics in the trade with the Nets that brought Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. Wallace should be a solid veteran influence for a young developing Celtics squad. In the Celtics' 101-97 victory over the Nets, Wallace had 14 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists in the victory proving that his all-around game can help the Celtics improve.

Player: Cristiano Ronaldo
Game: Real Madrid vs. Juventus

If you want to win games, all you need is Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo scored both of the Real Madrid goals. The star forward gave Madrid the lead four minutes into the game with a goal putting Real Madrid up 1-0. Ronaldo then scored on a penalty kick for Real Madrid that broke a 1-1 tie. Ronaldo has been great and proved to be very valuable in a tough and competitive game that wasn't a guaranteed Real Madrid victory.

Player: O.J. Mayo
Game: Milwaukee Bucks vs. New York Knicks

Milwaukee has been lambasted in NBA season previews for where their position in the NBA. The team refuses to bottom out and tank, but they also don't look like an elite team this season. They might be able to make the playoffs with the help of O.J. Mayo. Mayo had a strong showing last night against the New York Knicks. The Bucks won 105-95 thanks to Mayo's 22 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals. Mayo might have his true breakout season this year. (We're still waiting!)

Player: Jon Lester
Game: Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals

The World Series is a place for stars to shine. Jon Lester had another good pitching performance in the 2013 playoffs with his victory over the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series. Lester gave up just five hits in over seven innings of action. He also had eight strikeouts in the victory as the Red Sox easily cruised to a 8-1 victory. If everyone plays like Lester, this series will be slight work for the Red Sox.

Player: Mike Napoli
Game: Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals

Mike Napoli has had quite a Postseason. Napoli is batting just .243 in the Postseason, but he has come up with clutch hit after clutch hit. He got the Red Sox off to the right start with a bases-clearing double in the bottom of the first inning that scored three runs for the Red Sox. Boston ended up winning the game with relative ease 8-1.

Player: Dwyane Wade
Game: Miami Heat vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Some critics doubt the ability of the Miami Heat to repeat for this season. One of the main questions is the health of Dwyane Wade. Wade struggled with knee injuries late last season and he struggled to regain the athletic form and ability that made him a star. Wade is looking like his old self in the preseason. Last night, Wade had 25 points, 7 assists, and 3 steals in Miami's easy 108-95 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Game: Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals

Would you expect anything less than clutch when talking about the Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz? Ortiz hit a home run in the bottom of the seventh inning that officially turned this one into a laugher. Big Papi had three RBIs and was of course the clutch player that he has always been since he joined the Red Sox in 2003.

Player: Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Game: Paris Saint-Germain vs. Anderlecht

A hat trick is special in soccer but scoring four goals is the ultimate feat. Zlatan Ibrahimovic led Paris Saint-Germain to a victory with 4 goals in Paris Saint-Germain's 5-0 victory over Anderlecht. The French champions Paris Saint-Germain maintained their perfect record. Ibrahimovic became just the fourth player to score four times in a Champions League match which is pretty spectacular. He has now scored 10 goals in his past five games for club and country.
