DeAndre Ayton faced a big task of guarding Anthony Davis as he made his playoff debut. The 22-year-old center helped the Suns limit the Lakers star to just 13 points while having a double-double of 21 points and 16 rebounds himself.
After the game the Suns center was asked about defending against Davis. “It was just my guys having my back, helping me with AD. Just trying to play hard and try to just match the energy as best as I can. Just throughout the game great players and can’t tell when they’ll make great plays. Just being ready and that’s about it.”
