Gordon Hayward sinks game-winning jump shot to earn Boston Celtics road win over Sacramento Kings | NBA News

Gordon Hayward drained a tie-breaking jumper with two seconds remaining to give the Boston Celtics a 111-109 road win over the Sacramento Kings.

Hayward had a low-scoring night, contributing 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting, but stepped up in style with the game on the line.

His game-winning hoop occurred after the Kings had rallied from a late six-point deficit to gain a 109-all tie on three free throws by Buddy Hield with 7.6 seconds left.

Those foul shots were the result of a foul called on Hayward while he was attempting to defend the potential game-tying shot.

Without calling a timeout, the Celtics rushed the ball up the court, and Hayward nailed a nine-footer for the winner.
