Joel Embiid: 31/12/2/1/0 versus Thunder
Anthony Davis: 17/5/2/1/4 versus Kings

Reluctantly giving it to Stifle. No big distinguished himself in a win, and Gobert had the most impressive line among the losing bigs.

I think, in the three seasons I've been doing this, there's been less than five nights that there's been more than two top tier big men playing, and I didn't award a Big Man Of the Night. Nights when there were two or less, I usually don't award, unless someone had a particularly exceptional performance.

Hassan Whiteside: 21/16/1/0/0 versus Thunder

Lots of strong Big Men performances, so I determined the "tiebreaker" by quality of opposition. I'd have given it to Davis, outright, but that single-digit rebound total annoys me. AFAIC, if you have single-digit rebounds, you have to go for at least fifty.
