DeAndre Ayton was one of the top performers for the Phoenix Suns in Game 1 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. The 24-year-old center had a double-double of 21 points and 16 rebounds.

Lakers center Andre Drummond was asked about stopping Ayton ahead of Game 2. “Just keep him off the offensive glass, don’t let him get into a rhythm earlier in the game,” he said.

“I think I did a pretty good job on him in the start of the game. Just throughout the rest of the game het got a good rhythm going.”
