He worked hard all season and throughout the offseason to get back to full strength and many thought […] The post Boston Celtics: Why trading Gordon Hayward might make sense appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Lineup changes weren’t enough to avoid another loss and 10 other takeaways from Celtics/Hornets

Lineup changes weren’t enough to avoid another loss and 10 other takeaways from Celtics/Hornets

New lineup for Boston, same old late-game issues 1. Despite saying there were no lineup changes coming earlier in the day, Brad Stevens did switch things up by inserting Aron Baynes into the opening unit and bringing Gordon Hayward off the bench. It’s hard to get much of a read on how much this changed things, as Baynes only played 7:22 and Hayward played nearly 31 minutes, but this is a change Boston should stick with for at least a couple more games. 2. One benefit of starting Baynes is that it forced Charlotte to defend Al Horford with Marvin Williams instead of Cody Zeller. While...

Celtics fall to Kemba Walker and the Hornets 117-112

Boston has now lost two in a row. The Boston Celtics fell to the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night at Spectrum Center by a score of 117-112 Following the Celtics’ worst offensive performance of the season on Saturday night against the Utah Jazz, Brad Stevens decided it was time to make some changes to the starting lineup. Aron Baynes got the start in place of Gordon Hayward on Monday in Charlotte. Although the offensive production wasn’t stellar early on, it was clear that spacing and aggressiveness was much better, while their rotations on the defensive end were sharp and swift....

Gordon Hayward is back in form

Gordon Hayward is back in form

The max-contract Celtics forward is free from his minutes restriction, ready to do whatever the team needs to win. What does an NBA team get when they give a player a max contract? It may be custom to assume that max money means high points per game or flashy counting stats. But that isn’t always what a team needs. And that’s not who Gordon Hayward is. The Boston Celtics forward has solid career numbers: 15.5 PPG, 3.4 AST, 44.3 FG%, and 36.6 3FG%. He earned his current contract on the back of his best season yet (2016-17 in Utah), when all those marks were a good bit higher. But...

Tatum, Mitchell learning the hard way

Jayson Tatum and Donovan Mitchell have a lot in common. They were lottery picks in the 2017 draft -- Tatum third to the Celtics, Mitchell 13th to the Jazz -- and they’ve been friends since taking part in high-level camps for high schoolers years before.And though it wasn’t what either of their teams wanted, both had their development as rookies aided by the absence of Gordon Hayward. That’s not to say Tatum and Mitchell wouldn’t have succeeded under any circumstances; each has the kind of approach to the game that pretty much assures they’ll find a way to be more than good.But...
