Deandre Ayton exceeded 20 points for the first time this season as he put up a 21-point (10-for-14 FGs), nine-rebound, two-assist, one-block stat line in 37 minutes in a loss to the Kings on Tuesday.
Ayton is rounding into shape and is already doing about what he did last season. There's clearly room for improvement, and that should come as he meshes more with his new teammates. Fellow starter Aron Baynes didn't fare quite as well tonight, as he went for just five points, seven rebounds and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.
