Baynes put up 24 points (8-16 FG, 4-11 3 Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 140-131 victory over the Bucks.
In his last outing, Baynes took advantage of DeAndre Ayton (ankle) sitting out, exploding for a career-high 37 points to go with his 16 boards and two blocks in a triumph over the Trail Blazers, tying a franchise-record with nine threes in one game along the way. This performance, while not quite as extravagant, was still impressive for the 33-year old, making that two strong games in a row in Ayton's absence. The bad news is that Ayton is only day-to-day, and he could return soon.
Baynes exploded for 37 points (12-23 FG, 9-14 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 16 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 127-117 win over the Blazers.
Baynes got the start due to DeAndre Ayton's absence, as the second-year center is dealing with an ankle problem, but the Australian grabbed the opportunity with both hands en route to career-best numbers in minutes played, points, field goals made and three-pointers made, while being just one board shy of matching his career-high mark as well. Despite his impressive performance, Baynes might head back to the bench as soon as Ayton is available. The Suns play the Bucks at home Sunday.
