Gordon Hayward just beat Wayne Ellington off the dribble and will beat you at League of Legends, too.
L.A. has been experimenting with Ryan Kelly as the starting small forward. FYI: Gordon Hayward's averaging 22 pts & 5 ast over his last 5.
There is a phenomenal conversation invading my mentions right now. Cliffnotes: Derrick Favors hasn't improved Gordon Hayward is average
Favors block, Hayward scores at the other end, Jazz up by 15, and that should just about do it with four minutes left.
Duncan complains about his fourth foul, about eight minutes after getting away with nudging Hayward on halftime heave.
As good as Hayward was from the line, he went 1-of-7 from the field in the first half. Starts the second by finally seeing another one fall.
The difference is all in the free throws. Hayward is 9 for 10, Spurs are 1 for 2. It's not officiating. It's aggressiveness.
Gordon Hayward has tied career high FTA in first half (10)
Really bad spacing there. Kawhi tried to take Hayward in the post, but Duncan was in his way the entire time.

I thought we'd moved past the "Hayward doesn't deserve his contract" talk. He has the 29th biggest salary and is clearly a Top 30 player.
