Welcome to another day of the NBA 2018-19 season. Yesterday, we had three games to follow, and we have another 10 massive games to review tomorrow. James Harden has now reached five games consecutively in which he has scored 40+ points.

The only players to achieve this feat since 1977 are Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson. He doesn't look like he is going to stop anytime soon and is making a strong case for a back to back MVP performance. Let's analyse some of the meaningful performances from the last night, results of the matches and the top players to look out for in the matches tomorrow.

Thursday's results:

  1. Toronto Raptors 107-125 San Antonio Spurs
  2. Denver Nuggets 117-113 Sacramento Kings
  3. Houston Rockets 135-134 Golden State Warriors
