Gordon Hayward played team-high 39 minutes in Celtics win over Raptors, and he loved it
In last night's Celtics 123-116 overtime win over the Toronto Raptors, Gordon Hayward played a team-high 39 minutes and notched a team-best plus/minus of +18. He scored 15 points on 50% shooting from the field, while adding five rebounds, five assists and four steals. And he was on the floor for the finale. It was a great night for him.

It will be interesting to see if Brad Stevens plays Gordon tonight in the second game of back-to-backs. Since it is the Utah Jazz coming to town, I believe he will be out there.
#Celtics Brad Stevens: We don't need Gordon Hayward to score 30 points a game. We need him to be a jack of all trades. If he can score 15 points on 8 shots like tonight that's great.— Scott Souza (@Scott_Souza) November 17, 2018
Jack-of-all-trades is the prime reason Stevens and Danny Ainge coaxed Hayward to Boston. I consider him the Celtics most versatile player. He does everything, just as he showed last night. Would be nice to see it again tonight versus the Jazz.
