Deandre Ayton finished Thursday's win with 23 points (11-of-18) and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes while Cam Johnson posted 14 points (5-of-13) and a team-high 12 rebounds in 36 minutes.
Johnson has been very impressive in the resumption league, providing top-50 value while Ayton is a third-round asset through the first four games. Johnson struggled from distance, going just 2-of-9, but did chip in with three assists, one steal and one turnover. Johnson is firmly on the standard league radar ahead of the 2020-21 season. Ayton had six defensive stats in the contest, something that makes fantasy GMs very happy as he has averaged a combined 3.1 steals and blocks so far in his sophomore season. If he can stretch the floor consistently while increasing his defensive stats, Ayton could improve upon the 28/21 per-game value that he had this season.
