He was better than the Jays. He was hesitant taking 3s though, which tends to be an indicator of his confidence.
How many real open 3s did he get tho? I think Hayward won’t force any bad shots bc he’s also trying to find a better one. Pull up 3s really aren’t a part of his game much anymore except for the top of the key slight step back he does every now and again.
He’s more of a corner/wing catch and shoot 3 guy now and I didn’t see him get a lot of this looks tonight but perhaps I’m wrong.
I think his role now is to facilitate the offense, dribble in to pull in the defenders and then pass out for a 3 or look for a baseline cut or backdoor lay up. If that’s not there he uses the screener to shoot his midrange foul line j
