New Orleans • How bad was Gordon Hayward's 1-for-17 shooting night?
He's now one of just five guys to have done it since 1985, according to Basketball Reference (credit to @AndrewDBailey for the find). Hayward shares the dubious distinction with Hall of Fame finalist Tim Hardaway, a future Hall of Famer Jason Kidd, five-time All-Star Chris Bosh and one-time Brandy fiancé Quentin Richardson.
• John Lucas III had his shot going tonight. He went 4 of 5 from three and finished with 14 points. But even if he was still slumping, it might not be his fault.
"Every time I shoot I feel like my shot's going in," he said. "I'm a shooter. To me, I feel like it's the ball's [fault], it's not my shot. That's my mentality."
• Trey Burke led the team onto the court before the game. This happened:
