Elfrid Payton had another potent line for the Knicks on Sunday, as he strung together 10 points (5-of-13 FG), 11 assists, seven rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers versus the Nuggets.
Payton accomplished a lot over 25 minutes, and this is the type of line he has traditionally delivered during his hot streaks to end fantasy campaigns in years past. Whether he can keep this up is a good question to ask, but the Knicks have been competitive in three straight games and Payton has played a big role in all of them. He is worth a speculative add in standard leagues. His biggest competition for the point guard minutes is Frank Ntilikina (13 points, five rebounds, four assists, four steals, two 3-pointers) who had a great line as well, but he had been left for dead before tonight. Payton is well ahead of the field.
