- With MVP’s in action in tonight’s national TV games, a new Flash Challenge centered around impact goes live right after the games tonight (appx 10 pm PST), right here.
- To play, collect 1 Moment™ collectible from the leader in each stat category tonight -- Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals and Blocks

How do you impact an NBA game?
The definition has shifted over the years, as the league’s gone from Mikan to Magic to Michael to (far, far) away from the Mid-Range.
Do you measure impact in efficiency? PER? PIE? NetRtg? Or maybe in the case of Ja Morant, all of the above AND Top Shot Moments per night?
But no matter how you measure, the game still comes down to (1) buckets, (2) creating more chances for buckets and (3) taking away your opponents’ chances at getting said buckets.
So tonight, with an MVP in action in both nationally televised games -- reigning MVP Nikola Jokić in Denver Nuggets x Portland Trail Blazers, and 2017 MVP Russell Westbrook in Los Angeles Lakers x New York Knicks -- Tuesday’s Flash Challenge is all about the 5 major stat cats.
To play, you’ll need a Moment from the leader in each category across a 5-game night. Build your Showcase with eligible Moments by 1 pm PST on Wednesday. You’ll have a Series 2 Base Set Pack coming your way by the end of Wednesday.
Don’t forget to watch live with us tonight on Twitter, and share how your Moments are coming to life with #NBATopShotThis.
What Else Do I Need To Know?
- We recommend using our Showcase Builder, which makes it easy to build a Showcase with the right Moments
- You'll see the Flash Challenge go live on this page (same link as above) shortly after games end (appx 10 pm PST / 1 am EST)
- As long as your Showcase is fully complete and intact by 1 pm PST on Wednesday, you'll get a new pack in your collection within 24 hours.
- If there is a tie, we'll use tiebreakers to limit the amount of players to 5. Tiebreaker #1 will be Team Margin Of Victory. Tiebreaker #2 - Player +/-. Tiebreaker #3 - Player Time On Court.
- If a player leads multiple categories, you’ll need 2 Moments from that player
- If a player without a Moment yet is in the Top 5, the next player up will be eligible. (Ex: If a rookie without a Debut yet is #1 in a category, he'll be removed from the list, and #2 will become #1)
