Another exciting week in the NBA has produced several storylines. Lamarcus Aldridge is out indefinitely with a heart condition. The Warriors are really struggling without Durant and the Cavs can’t defend anyone. With the teams at the top struggling, it provides an opening for other teams to gain momentum. That being said no one has been consistent. The Celtics won at Golden State, but lost their three other games on their West trip. In the West the Jazz, Rockets and Clippers have been uneven.

Here are the top seven performers of the week in the NBA!
