Gordon Hayward throws it down on Joel Freeland (VIDEO)


That, Gordon Hayward, is why you are now getting paid max money — we need to see more of that.

Hayward takes the handoff out 28 from the basket, comes around the pick, sees an open lane to the basket and attacks the Portland defense. Eventually Joel Freeland tries to rotate over but by then it’s way, way too late and Freeland just becomes part of the Hayward show.

Utah needs someone to step up and take charge of the offense this season, and Hayward is the guy at the front of line. Utah is counting on a lot of this.
