Gordon Hayward 63 front court touches per game last year only non point guard with more was LeBron James

Snyder on Hayward's post-dunk stare: "I like when he plays with passion and emotion. To see that come out I think it's a really good thing."

Utah playing its starters late. Burke, Burks, Hayward all already over 30 minutes.
Half: Utah 56, Portland 54. Aldridge has 12 for Portland. Gordon Hayward has 14 points, 3 assists and 1 disrespectful dunk.
Even before that dunk Gordon Hayward has been very very good tonight.
