  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Plays 17 minutes in Game 7 beatdown

    Ayton ended Sunday's 123-90 loss to the Mavericks in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals with five points (2-5 FG, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal over 17 minutes.

    Foul trouble was mostly to blame for Ayton's low minute total, as he picked up his third personal with just under four minutes to play in the second quarter. When Ayton exited, Phoenix trailed by 18 points, but by halftime the Mavs' lead ballooned to 30. With the Suns looking for any sort of offensive spark, Ayton sat for much of the second half before it became clear that the game was out of reach and Monty Williams dipped deeper into his bench. This was easily Ayton's worst statistical effort of the postseason. The big man had found success earlier in the series, averaging 17.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and shooting 59.5 percent from the field in Games 1 through 6. After he and the Suns failed to agree on a contract extension prior to the season, Ayton will head into the summer as a restricted free agent. As such, Phoenix will have the right to match any offer Ayton receives, but it remains unclear just how much the Suns, and owner Robert Sarver, will be willing to pay for the No. 1 overall pick in 2018.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Near double-double in win

    Ayton put up 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in the 110-80 win over Dallas on Tuesday.

    Ayton saw just 22 minutes after picking up two quick fouls in the first half but was still one rebound shy of his third straight double-double of the series and fourth of the postseason. The fourth-year center will look to help Phoenix close out the series Thursday.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Double-doubles in loss

    Ayton ended Sunday's 111-101 loss to the Mavericks with 14 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 33 minutes.

    Ayton registered a double-double for a second consecutive contest but has failed to top 20 points since pouring in 25 during Game 1. He's been a steady producer throughout the series, except for Game 2 when he faced foul trouble. The talented big man has a favorable matchup against the Mavericks frontcourt and will look to take full advantage when the series shifts back to Phoenix on Tuesday.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Second double-double of playoffs

    Ayton closed Friday's 103-94 loss to the Mavericks with 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-4 FT) and 11 rebounds over 33 minutes.

    Ayton left his mark on both ends of the court and bounced back from an awful showing, as he only ended with nine points and three rebounds in Game 2. It's worth noting he has scored 15-plus points in six of his last seven postseason appearances.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Paces Phoenix with 25 points

    Ayton had 25 points (12-20 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds and one block over 33 minutes during Monday's 121-114 victory over the Mavericks.

    All five Suns starters finished with double-digit scoring, and Ayton led the way with his second-highest point total of the postseason. The big man also tied for the team lead with 20 field-goal attempts and didn't commit a single turnover in his 33 minutes of court time. Ayton has logged five performances of 20-plus points in the playoffs thus far following a regular season during which he averaged 17.2 points per game.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Hits for 22 in Thursday's win

    Ayton accumulated 22 points (10-12 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 40 minutes during Thursday's 115-109 win over the Pelicans.

    It was the fourth time in six games against the Pels that Ayton scored more than 20 points. The fourth-year center averaged 20.5 points, 9.8 boards, 2.5 assists and 1.2 blocks in the first round, and he'll take plenty of momentum into a second-round clash with the Mavericks beginning Monday in Phoenix.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Near double-double in win

    Ayton recorded 19 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds and three assists in the 112-97 win over New Orleans on Tuesday.

    Ayton fell one rebound shy of what would have been his second double-double of the series and 32nd of the season. The fourth-year big man is still up to 20.2 points, 10.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per contest through the first five games of the series.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Scores efficient 23, Suns fall

    Ayton had 23 points (11-14 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 118-103 loss to the Pelicans.

    After going for 28 points and 17 boards in Game 3, Ayton had another efficient night on the offensive end, going 11-of-14 from the field to help counteract a strong effort from Jonas Valanciunas (26 points, 15 boards). For the series, Ayton is up to 20.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 0.8 steals per game. He's drawn only five total free throw attempts in 135 minutes, however.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Grabs 17 boards

    Ayton logged 28 points (13-20 FG, 1-1 3PT, 1-1 FT), 17 rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block during Friday's 114-111 win over New Orleans.

    Ayton recorded his third-highest rebound total of the season to help the Suns steal Game 3 on the road. With Devin Booker being ruled out with a hamstring injury, Phoenix's offense was heavily reliant on Ayton, as he scored 21 of his 28 points in the first half.

  • Suns' Deandre Ayton: Fails to gain traction inside

    Ayton contributed 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and four assists over 33 minutes during Tuesday's 125-114 loss to the Pelicans.

    Although Ayton came close to a double-double, his scoring took a serious dive from Game 1, when he finished with 21 points. When Ayton and Cameron Johnson share the court, Ayton's output tends to take a tumble, and that was especially true in the fourth quarter, when Johnson had a much better showing overall.

    After resting for Thursday's loss to the Clippers, Ayton was back in the lineup along with all of the Suns' other regulars. In a full 34 minutes of action, he posted his 30th double-double in 58 appearances this season.
