After an undefeated preseason, Gordon Hayward and the Boston Celtics are ready for the real thing.
G-Time participated in three of Boston’s four preseason wins and rested for another. He saved his best performance for last, totaling 13 points, six rebounds and four assists in the C’s preseason finale, 108-100 win over the Charlotte Hornets.
Now, they look ahead at their season opener—a trip to Cleveland to take on the reigning Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers. Until that marquee matchup, take a look at some highlights from No. 20’s first preseason in Boston:

Gordon Hayward's going to pick up some really easy assists this year the way he draws defenders in close. #Celtics

1. Breaking: Gordon Hayward is so good. His offensive versatility is ridiculous, and his defense is really strong. Very quick hands.
