Don't really like awarding BMOtN to guys on losing teams, but no one else distinguished themselves as well as The Giant.

I was walking down the street one night in Motown and I happened to bump into this fellow named Andre. He told me that he had 20 20 vision and that he saw me coming a mile away

35/18 is impressive, but 25/20 against the best team in the east, on the road, is more impressive. Don't really see any point in waiting for the late games to award this one.

Just so we're clear, Karl-Anthony Towns had twenty-points in the first half against New Orleans, and currently has twenty-three.

Well, I know who for sure is not going to be BMOtN. #SAWFT

Nikola Jokic: 12/9/7/4/1 versus Hawks

Some HM potential with Aldridge or Harrell in the late game, but unless it's needed for a tie-breaker, there'll probably be no BMOtN awarded for tonight.

Lot of big men showing up tonight! I actually think that Embiid's statline is more impressive overall, but I'm giving it to Davis again, because he did it against another Top Tier Big Man.

Not inclined to award BMOtN, with both players' teams losing at home, unless a tiebreaker for BMOtM is involved.

Plenty of good Big Man showings last night. I ultimately gave it to Embiid over Capela, whose performance impressed me more, personally, due to quality of opposition.

I'm biased. I'm giving it to Thompson over Towns, due to quality of opposition.

Vucevic didn't finish quite as strong as I was hoping but, eh... at least he lost on the road.

No Top Tier Big Man put up impressive numbers in a win, so I am reluctantly giving it to Gasol, due to quality of opposition.

Is Hassan really doing enough to be considered a top tier big man anymore?
