Elfrid Payton was shut down in Thursday’s loss to Thunder and was limited to scoring six points,
grabbing five rebounds, dishing out six assists and swiping two steals.
Payton has had it rough finding his shot in recent games, shooting just 37.5 percent from the field in his last five games, a ways off from his 50.8 percent for the season. On the good news front, Payton is averaging 8.0 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game. It’s a mixed bag and while it’s tilted on the negative, Payton should still be able to steer things in the right direction as he gets more comfortable with his new team.
