Gordon Hayward reportedly aiming for Game 3 return on Saturday


According to Jared Weiss, Gordon Hayward is pushing for a return to action for Game 3 versus the Miami heat on Saturday.

 If this happens, it is very good news for the Celtics who are now down 0-2 in the Eastern Finals. Gordon gives the Guys in Green another potential 20-point scorer - adds stability and experience to a team that has looked ragtag at times - and puts another ball handler and passer out there to overcome Miami's zone defense.

The Celtics can not afford to go down 0-3 in this series. so I expect that Brad Stevens will give Hayward at least a shot out there if he appears ready to go on Saturday. He may be the boost this team needs to get back into this series.
