Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge shared a video Monday morning on Twitter of Hayward shooting 3-pointers, including a few made shots from several feet beyond the arc.
Check it out in the tweet below:
Hayward is in the midst of his best season as a Celtic.
He's averaging 17.3 points per game and shooting an impressive 39.2 percent from 3-point range. The veteran forward also is averaging career highs with 6.5 rebounds per game and a 84.7 percent success rate from the free throw line.
Hayward will be among the Celtics' x-factors when the regular season resumes and also in the playoffs. One of the Celtics' strengths is their scoring depth. They are the only team in the Eastern Conference with three players -- Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker -- averaging 20-plus points per game this season, and when Hayward also plays well offensively, Boston is very tough to beat.
