Nobody will ever forget Gordon Hayward’s halfcourt shot against Duke at the buzzer that just rattled out, sealing a Duke national championship. Hayward has come a long way since his Butler days, and has developed into a much better NBA player than most people predicted. He’s averaging a solid 14 points per game in just his third year, and has become a reliable scorer for a team lacking a ton of perimeter offensive firepower. He may not have been able to take down Duke on a last second shot, but he succeeded in doing so against the Kings: Watching the video, you can’t help but feel like he knew that was going in. I guess that’s the confidence you want out of a scorer, right? -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Gordon Hayward Hits Game Winner Against Kings appeared first on Pass The Pill.
