In their game against Cuba last night, Gordon and Ayton combined for 39 points along with a +71, and the team ended up blowing Cuba by 41 points for a final score of 109-68.

Ayton in particular was very efficient and showed a slim version of himself that was able to help move him at a much faster pace and he was punishing defenders for it all night long.

After the game ended, Eric Gordon was asked a question about his new teammate and he gave Ayton nothing but flowers and even believes that he will be a vital piece for the Suns this upcoming season.

Ayton has been under scrutiny this offseason for his play over the past couple of seasons. Ayton has said that he wants to prove everyone wrong by changing the narrative about him.
