Was Gordon Hayward’s cutting dunk in the lane a sign of another step forward?
“Ah, no. I mean, I don’t think that that looked much different than what we’ve seen on a day-to-day basis. Obviously, we haven’t practiced a ton, but I see him do that all the time when he’s working out individually, especially at the – at the facility. He – we need to do a better job of setting him up, spacing, and finding him on cuts. That’s one of the great things that he does. And then it is good to see him dunk it in traffic. But at the same time, I think that we’ve seen that and we all know it’s there. And so I thought – I thought his play was encouraging, but I thought we got encouraging play from a lot of people.”
Re: All 12 people from both teams scored tonight. That’s pretty rare. How do you think that happened?
“Sometimes, it’s just a part of the game. I don’t really know how to answer that, it’s just a part of the game, a part of the flow. You know, a lot of guys got going tonight and everybody scored. I never heard of that either. That’s crazy.”
Re: There were times when it seemed like the ball just found you, not you seeking it out. What is it like when you have those types of nights?
“It’s great. It’s a blessing. You come out, play the game of basketball. Definitely, a game I love to play. You’re out there getting easy baskets, you’re winning, and you’re having fun. All of that is a part of it. It means a lot. I’m having fun out there.”
