Hayward had 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3PT 2-3 FT), four rebounds and two assists in Monday's loss to Boston. Hayward has come along slowly this season, but he's found a bit of a groove lately, scoring in double-digits in three straight games for the first time all season. Hayward had 35 points in a win over Minnesota on Wednesday and followed up with 16 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists Friday against Dallas.
Hayward scored 16 points (6-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, eight assists and a block in 30 minutes off the bench during Friday's 114-93 win over the Mavericks. With Marcus Morris (neck) and Kyrie Irving (eye) both in street clothes, Hayward saw a starter's workload for the second straight game and responded with another big performance, very nearly collecting his first career triple-double. The 28-year-old usual bench role when everyone is healthy puts a firm cap on his fantasy production, but Hayward is demonstrating that he can still carry an NBA club as he did in Utah when he gets the chance.
Hayward exploded for 35 points (14-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, and one rebound in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 115-102 win over the Timberwolves. Hayward finished with a season high scoring total, stepping up offensively with Kyrie Irving (eye) sidelined. The fourth quarter departure of Marcus Morris (neck) also opened the door of opportunity for Hayward, and he made the most of it. With so many mouths to feed on offense, Hayward doesn't stand out that often (went scoreless in Monday's loss to the Spurs), though if his shots start falling at anywhere near the rate they did in this one, things could change rather quickly for the 28-year-old wing.
Hayward supplied 14 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, and three rebounds in 27 minutes during Saturday's 112-103 win over the Grizzlies. Hayward was efficient offensively, breaking a three-game single-digit scoring slump in which he combined to score just 22 points. The 28-year-old veteran is still trying to get his groove back, particularly as a scorer, and maybe this was a step in the right direction. However, he's earning his lowest minute total since his rookie season and connecting on a career-worst field-goal percentage while offering only low-end value in standard leagues.
Hayward ended with eight points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, and two assists in 24 minutes during Sunday's 119-103 victory over the Hornets. Hayward shifted back to the bench with Marcus Morris returning to the lineup, putting up mediocre production in the easy win. Hayward continues to struggle in his first full season with the Celtics but owners simply have to hope he can get things going at some point, given his low trade value right now.
