Elfrid Payton continued to mess around and dropped another triple-double in Friday’s big home win, posting 14 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
Payton shot 5-of-11, hit a triple and only committed one turnover. He’s been a revelation of late, posting top-40 value over the past month. Given that he’s just a top-100 guy on the full season it’s obvious that he’s made some serious strides in his play of late. The subject of contention in Orlando’s front office last season, his recent play should quiet those who felt the organization traded the wrong backcourt guy. While the jury may still be out on that one the Long Weeknd is looking like a lock-and-load guy til the end of the year.
