Baltimore Ravens' quarterback Lamar Jackson continues to shine. With another historic feat (the first player to throw for five touchdowns on a Monday Night Football debut), Jackson led his Ravens to a crushing 45-6 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Jackson has avoided throwing an interception for the 9th time this season and thrown multiple touchdowns for the 6th time.
Portland Trailblazers' Carmelo Anthony credited his wife, La La Anthony, for his season-best 25 points in his team's 117-94 win over the Chicago Bulls. He said his wife kept him going by saying, "Don't do it, don't think about it, don't do it, don't you let that thought creep into your head. So, she was a major, major part of why I'm here today."
For the first time in his career, Philadelphia 76ers' Joel Embiid was held scoreless in a 101-96 loss to the Toronto Raptors. Ben Simmons handed out some reassuring words to his teammate saying, "Everyone has down games. No one is Superman. It happened tonight to Jo, but he’s going to be good."
