ORLANDO – After playing tentatively and passing up a potential game-tying shot in his NBA Summer League debut on Monday, Utah’s top draft pick Gordon Hayward seemed more sure of himself in scoring 14 points, including the clinching trey, in a 78-73 win over Orlando.
“It was nothing special,” Hayward said. “I did what I could to win the game. The ball just came to me.
“Today was a lot better. I felt a lot more comfortable out there. After getting that first day out of the way, overall as a team we were more comfortable.
“Everything is faster here, a little stronger. It’s a different game. For me it’s an adjustment. But I’ve got to keep learning and keep getting better every day.”
