We've witnessed plenty of thrilling and competitive performances from the NBA's top 22 teams since play began inside the bubble on July 30.

Based on a relatively small sample size of action - 49 of the 88 seeding games played thus far - here are the five most surprising storylines.

Warren among NBA's scoring leaders

The Indiana Pacers were dealt a mixed bag entering the season restart. After Victor Oladipo changed his mind and decided to join the team, star big man Domantas Sabonis was forced to exit the bubble to receive treatment for plantar fasciitis.

With Sabonis out indefinitely and Oladipo still working himself closer to full strength, T.J. Warren surprisingly emerged to help keep the Pacers afloat.

Warren enjoyed an electrifying debut at the Walt Disney World Resort, torching the Philadelphia 76ers for a career-high 53 points during a hard-fought 127-121 win.

The veteran swingman kept rolling during the Pacers' next two seeding games, scoring 34 and 32 points, respectively, while contributing to Indiana's 3-0 start in Orlando.
