Elfrid Payton finished with 13 points, 13 assists, 10 boards and a block on 6-of-10 from the field in Monday’s 115-120 loss to the Kings.
Payton triple-doubled for the third time in his last five games. Over the last four contests he has been a top-15 asset per game. All that can be observed here is that the young guard has been steadily improving his game over the course of the year. If the season were to end today he would have jumped 100 spots in total production from last season. Those owners who snagged him in the draft or via trade are reaping the benefits of that fantasy adjective we like to call “potential.”
