Elfrid Payton had a significant impact in his first game back after missing the last eight games with a hamstring injury. He flirted with a triple-double with 11 points, 11 assists and six rebounds in Wednesday’s win. He also had two steals and two blocks.

Suited to play in Frank Vogel’s up-tempo style because of his ability to push the pace and accelerate up and down the floor, Payton’s motor and energy helped the Magic rack up 21 fast break points.
