With Kawhi becoming the NBA's Waldo, I was wondering whether anyone spotted Gordon at the game last night? Kyrie and Marcus were there, but I don't recall seeing Hayward, nor has he posted about the game on Twitter?
I noticed this too ... Kyrie, Smart, and Theisss (off his knee surgery) were all there and actively engaged in supporting the team. I did not see GH.
As I was watching the game, I was wondering the same thing. I understand that he is still rehabbing and hasn't been on the bench during the regular season. However, I was hoping to see him on the bench during the playoffs. He has played against some of these guys, and may notice tendencies and can offer advice to either Tatum or Brown. Both of those guys are young and will soak up any advice they can get, especially if it will help win a game in a series. Tatum and Brown have a lot of pressure to perform well and score in these playoffs, especially since the burden to score is on them now that Irving (and Hayward) and done for the season. The fact that Hayward plays their same positions just seems odd to me that he wouldn't be on the bench to help make some contribution in the teams biggest time of need.
Having said that, I still can't wait to see him on the court next season, nor do I question his dedication or loyalty to the Celtics.
