Orlando’s Elfrid Payton records second-straight triple-double (VIDEO)


Who does Elfrid Payton think he is, Russell Westbrook?

The Orlando Magic rookie is growing more comfortable with the NBA game and looked very good against Portland Friday night: 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Payton was in attack mode and getting to the rim — he hit 8-of-9 in the restricted area on the night.

Payton was central to the Magic upsetting the Trail Blazers Friday night, 111-104.

Payton has some work to do on his jump shot and other aspects of his game. But he’s starting to look like another key piece of the future in Orlando.
