Gordon Hayward willing to make sacrifice to help spark Celtics' offense

Gordon Hayward willing to make sacrifice to help spark Celtics' offense

Through 12 games, Hayward is averaging 9.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.8 rebounds. Boston was up 71-47 midway through the quarter when the Bulls reeled off eight points in a row.

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. "I said it before the season, it's whatever to me".

After all, Brad Stevens' team made it to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals previous year and did it without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. Otherwise, odd player combinations from Brad Stevens appear to be impeding the Celtics. Oh, and worst of all, they were losing to the Bulls by five points by the quarter's end.

In the seven games the Bulls have played in November, LaVine is still averaging over 23.4 points per game, but he's shooting 36.8 percent from the field and just 24.4 percent from 3-point range.

Wayne Rooney will wear the number 10 shirt and captain's armband when he comes on for his final England appearance in the friendly with the United States.

There aren't many people out there who figured the Boston Celtics would be 7-6 after the first 13 games of the season. This includes a 10-point, 3-for-11 effort against the Celtics, which ended his impressive streak of 20-point performances at 14 games (15 if you include his last outing in 2017-18).

With Brown and Hayward on the floor to balance the bench energy of Semi Ojeleye, Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart to start the second quarter the Celtics took control on 3-pointers from Smart and Brown before Tatum returned for a 3-pointer and 37-30 lead with 4:49 on the clock. They've had starting PG Kris Dunn for just one game, lost starting PF Lauri Markkanen before the year started, and have been without Bobby Portis for 10 games.

Although there was rarely any points to be had from Chicago's offense, the lone bright spot from the game came from newly backup Point Guard, Shaquille Harrison. We're not there yet and so that, to me, is well-coached teams get there. After all, the Bulls are ranked 22nd in the league with a defensive rating of 111.3, and the team has not fared much better in points allowed, ranking 21st in this category while giving up 112.3 points per outing.

The Celtics have won six straight home games against the Bulls over the last three regular seasons.
