Elfrid Payton played 31 minutes in a win against the Knicks on Monday, finishing with 13 points on 6-of-12 from the field, one 3-pointer, three boards, 14 assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers.
This is as good a line as Payton’s owners could ask for. He was extremely efficient while tying his career-high with 14 dimes after being pretty awful his previous two games, so maybe this game rights the ship. Him coming off the bench isn’t exactly a death sentence so just keep running him out there and hope he can inch his way into the top-100.
