C's bench has 32 points on 21 shots. And only 3 guys (Wanamaker, Smart and GWill) have scored or even taken a shot. .

Poirier is so bad at holding on to the ball when they pass to him, he could be a Patriots wide receiver.

Just in case anyone was wondering why Poirier is usually stapled to the bench

How does Hayward play 30 minutes and not go to the line once? I've only watched bits and pieces, and the score looks good, but he's really been a non-factor lately. He must not be as right as he was to start the season, physically.

8 assists, 6 rebounds, 2nd on the team at +14. Shot wasnt falling early, so he became a playmaker.

He has been pretty effective - just not shooting. My sense is that if he doesn't get going, he doesn't force anything because he knows he has Kemba and the Jays to do that stuff. He just plays defense and play-makes.

Did you see him against the Pelicans two nights ago? He was anything but a non-factor. He's plus-14 tonite; second-highest of any player. 8 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds.

I do think Hayward was valuable tonight but at the same time I also don’t think he looked all that great physically. I wonder if it’s going to be a game by game basis with him from now on. He did a good job not forcing anything. Last year he had a bad habit of forcing drives, getting swallowed up, and having to wildly kick it out. Seems like he plays a lot more conservatively now if he knows he just doesn’t have it. It’s a good thing but I’m really hoping the Hayward that took it to the rim with authority at the beginning of the year wasn’t a tease.

Let's hope the All-Star break cures his ills.
