Suns’ DeAndre Ayton scored 22 points and recorded a massive 19 rebounds in last night’s victory over the Bucks. Despite Giannis’ last-minute return, he couldn’t inspire Milwaukee to take Game 1 in Phoenix.
22-year-old Ayton made 8 of 10 field goal attempts as well as sinking 6 of 6 free throws. He also made a steal in the game.
Ayton had previously recorded double-doubles in Games 4, 5 and 6 in the Western conference Finals against the Clippers. Including a 19-point and 22-rebound game to help the Suns to a 3-1 series lead in a key game 4 in LA.
Game 2 is in Phoenix on Thursday night and DeAndre Ayton will be looking for another big performance. Boosted further by Chris Paul and Devin Booker getting back to form after a difficult series against the Clippers.
