Last week’s MVP race consisted of who committed the least amount of errors. This week, we witnessed a clash of titans. There was an assortment of double-doubles, triple-doubles and career highs. Most of the contenders went undefeated during the seven-day stretch but there was one loss in the mix. Ironically, the player who contributed that one loss is at the top of the MVP standings. In fact, no one holds the position they reserved last week.

At this point in the contention, it’s all about who’s grand finale shines above the rest. This league is known for it’s “what have you done for me lately” disposition and each candidate is stringing together performances not worth forgetting. Let’s take a look at who battled to a higher standing and who fell beneath the pack.
