• Gordon Hayward
    F, Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward was 4-for-12 from the floor for 10 points, five boards, four steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Sixers on Tuesday.

    It was Hayward's first return to NBA action since exactly a year ago on opening night. Coach Stevens stuck to his word of limiting Hayward's minute to between 25-30, as Hayward saw 25 minutes and peppered in some nice plays. With so much depth in Boston, expect Hayward to slowly ease in to his role as the season wears on.
