Magic's Elfrid Payton: Goes 1-for-8 from field in 30-point loss
Payton was held to eight points (1-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), nine rebounds and four assists across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 107-77 preseason loss to the Heat.
Payton has been reliable from the charity stripe throughout the preseason, but the same can't be said for his shooting from the field (12-for-37; 32.4%) or behind the three-point line (2-for-9; 22.2%). The inefficient shooting is nothing new for Payton, and he hasn't helped his cause by turning the ball over 16 times during the exhibition slate. Payton is still locked into the starting role at point guard, but the lack of progress he's made with his shooting will make him little more than a middle-tier fantasy option at his position.
