Player: Ty Lawson
Game: Denver Nuggets vs. Chicago Bulls

At the end of the day, Ty Lawson is going to be the reason the Nuggets make or miss the playoffs. He's the best player on Denver and he really gets their team going with his quickness and ability to make shots in traffic as well as an improved jumper.

Player: Storm Johnson
Game: UCF Knights vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights

There is nothing better than a good rushing game. It's hard these days in all walks of football since running is used a lot less and a ground and pound game seems more unconventional by the minute. The UCF Knights took a chance with their run game as Storm Johnson had a great night last night for his team. The UCF running back had 75 rushing yards and 2 rushing touchdowns as his team was able to pull off a strong 41-17 victory over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Game: Duke Blue Devils vs. Vanderbilt Commodores

Another great season, another great start for the Duke Blue Devils. The Blue Devils are off to a 4-0 start and Chelsea Gray is at the center of this with strong performances for her team game-to-game this season. Gray finished Duke's 88-69 win over Vanderbilt with a great all-around performance. She had 14 points, 8 rebounds, and 12 assists in the relatively easy Duke win. So close to a triple-double but so far at the same time. Hopefully she can get to that achievement after coming up so close.

The Denver Nuggets are still trying to find their footing in the NBA.

The Nuggets responded with Kenneth Faried making some impact plays for his team in their 97-87 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Faried was doing Manimal things with 12 points, 11 rebounds, and 2 blocks for the Nuggets as they bounced back from a two-game losing streak.

Player: Jimmy Graham
Game: New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons

A quarterback is only as good as his receiving options and vice versa. Drew Brees might be great, but he has some pretty great weapons at his disposal. That includes tight end Jimmy Graham who has been making amazing catch after amazing catch over the years. Graham was his good old athletic and explosive self last night as he had 100 receiving yards and 1 receiving touchdown in the Saints' 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Graham's touchdown came in the middle of the second quarter and was vital as it gave the Saints a 14-10 lead in a defensive-minded matchup.

There never seems to be a moment where Drew Brees has a questionable performance in a game. He's always on point when it comes to directing his team's offense and managing a game. Brees again was spot on with a solid performance in the Saints' 17-13 win over their rival Atlanta Falcons. Brees threw for 278 passing yards and 2 touchdowns as the Saints managed to win a close contest that was tight throughout the course of the entire game.
