Warriors' Gary Payton: Breaks through with big Game 5

Payton contributed 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and three steals across 26 minutes during Monday's 104-94 win over Boston in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Payton was the leading scorer off the bench for the Warriors, and he was very efficient with a 6-for-8 effort from the field. The sixth-year guard tied his playoff career high with 15 points, which he initially set against Denver in Game 5 of the opening round this year. Payton was also a difference-maker on defense, helping to contain the perimeter while racking up a team-high three steals.

NBA legend Gary Payton helping businesses with COVID-19 relief, a spirit of giving that runs in the family

Hall of Famer and NBA 75th Anniversary Team selectee Gary Payton's legacy has noticeably been carried on during the NBA Finals by his son, Golden State Warriors defensive menace Gary Payton II. That legacy began with the elder Payton's late father, Al, a Bay Area legend known as "Mr. Mean" due to his no-nonsense approach to just about every facet of life. He helped train Gary Sr. on the court, while keeping him from succumbing to the temptations and dangers of Oakland in the early 1980s.
