Payton recorded 20 points (9-12 FG, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes during Monday's win over the Lakers.

The 27-year-old scored 20 points for the first time since March 4. Payton had been playing well before Monday's game, averaging 10.0 points, 3.4 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers and 0.8 steals over his last five games. The seventh-year guard will look to build on this impressive scoring performance Wednesday on the road against the Pelicans.
