On a nine-game Monday night, the NBA provided plenty of highlights and had numerous superstars stepping with noteworthy performances.

In case you missed the action from the slate, here's a recap with the top performers, best game, top highlight and the final scores.

Game of the Night

After their 4-0 start, everybody was talking about the Bulls' gauntlet of opponents coming up. Three games into that, they are a respectable 2-1 with their most recent victory in Boston.

They came back from 19 points down late in the third quarter, courtesy of a 37-9 fourth quarter.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 37 points, his first game of scoring at least 30 points with at least three 3-pointers since his time with the Raptors in 2018. He and Zach LaVine combined for 23 of the team's 37 in the final period.

Highlight of the Night

Orlando Magic rookie Franz Wagner throws down a thunderous poster slam in Minnesota.

Apart from the slam, the No. 8 pick of the 2021 NBA Draft also announced himself in this game by scoring a career-high 28 points.

Performance of the Night

On a nine-game slate, there were plenty of game-winning performances to choose from but Paul George takes the cake here.

He continued his hot start to the season and led the Clippers to a comeback win against the Thunder. He scored 27 of his 32 points in the second half, playing a key role in the team registering their second win of the season.

Not to mention the nine rebounds, seven assists and three steals that he recorded. The Clippers star is now averaging 28.3 points for the season on incredible shooting splits of 49.2 percent from the field, 41.1 from beyond the arc and 81.0 from the free-throw line.
