Scapegoating Gordon Hayward is getting old

Article Summary:

The Celtics came out mostly flat to start the game, but Hayward was there to generate some offense when nothing else was working. Hayward is the only player other than Marcus Smart who can make these types of plays for the Celtics and he came up with nine assists to three turnovers in a game where the Celtics struggled to make simple perimeter passes.

Since the new year, Hayward averaged 18/7/4 on 49/41/88 shooting splits over 23 games.

After the game, Hayward admitted that he “Smoked some bunnies” and the Celtics would have probably won the game if he hadn’t uncharacteristically missed a couple around the rim, but big picture, he’s been good if not great.
