Gordon Hayward scored 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a 3-pointer against the Hornets on Thursday.
Hayward is looking like his old self again after struggling to find consistency last season. His injury was brutal two years ago and the bench role didn't do him any favors. Boston has much lower expectations this season so the pressure is off and he's had an extra year to get right. He'll be a solid play, but there's still skepticism about "Utah Hayward" being a real thing again with how much young talent there is on the Celtics.
