Gordon Hayward Is Open to a Bench Role with the Celtics

Boston Celtics practice report Trust issues still holding Celtics back

The Celtics returned from a awful road trip with a resounding rout. The Celtics held the Bulls to 82 total points. Otherwise, odd player combinations from Brad Stevens appear to be impeding the Celtics.

And after the big blowout win, the road will get obviously harder for the Celtics, as they will host the Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz in a Friday-Saturday back-to-back at TD Garden.

"Coming into the season we were all expecting that we would just kind of take over", said Al Horford, who scored 10 points with eight rebounds in just 20 minutes, "and we're very risky". Boston has all of the talent in the world, from veteran stars like Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward to up-and-comers like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown (Tatum is arguably already at star status).

For the second straight season, the Chicago Bulls are experiencing more than their fair share of difficulties.

Apparently he's suffering from an illness for the time being and will take tonight off to rest.

Tatum buried his second three with 48 seconds left for a 49-33 edge, and Rozier scored from the pant to close out the half with a 51-35 Celtics lead.

Shaquille Harrison led Chicago with 16 points. They have been carried by Zach LaVine, who has been scoring at will this season.

D'Antoni expects the rest of the Rockets to handle this professionally, but knows that the move will be tough on them. Technically, the Hawks drafted Doncic with the third pick of the 2018 National Basketball Association draft.

"We have to figure something out because for whatever reason we're not playing our best basketball right now".

Overall, the Celtics out-scored Chicago 32-11 in the quarter.

Hayward is being eased back into the fold, but he did break 30 minutes for the first time this season in a loss to the Blazers on Sunday night.

Brown, off to one of his best starts of the early season, led the way with a 12-point, double 3-pointer half.

"We were prepared. I think that we've been prepared other games but we've got to match that with the attitude and effort to execute on both ends", Irving said. They have trailed by at least 20 points in the last three games. "Lauri was able to increase his activity today and did not have any pain after, which is a great sign".

Hayward said he is open to a role change or coming off the bench as he tries to return to form. There's no question about that. This is something coach Brad Stevens has said since the preseason needs to be corrected.
