George turned in his best performance of the season. The shooting guard went off for 46 points, six of which came on three pointers, and he added five rebounds and seven assists. The Clippers are second in the West, and with more performances like this from George they can close the gap with their crosstown rival Lakers quickly.

Kemba Walker, Boston Celtics

The second year PG is probably the league’s biggest breakout star. He already has two MOTW cards, but his performance against the Brooklyn Nets absolutely warrants his third. He led the Hornets to a win, their second straight, with a career high 40 points, while adding five rebounds and five assists. He also drained seven three-pointers.

Below are the six other players I think are in position to earn a MOTW 8 card.

Brandon Clark, Memphis Grizzles

Jeremi Grant, Denver Nuggets

Eric Bledsoe, Milwaukee Bucks

Marcus Morris, New York Knicks

Kendrick Nunn, Miami Heat
