    After last night's game winning shot, Hayward was asked whether he knew the ball was going to go in.

    His response surprised me somewhat - he said that he knew the ball was going to go in when he was free coming off the curl on Favors screen. (i.e., even before he actually shot the ball)

    That's just something Foye had been saying for a while now "Once I make 1, I feel like I can make them all".

    That's just the type of confident thinking you need as a shooter and I hadn't seen from Hayward.

    Well, if you're taking a shot off a received pass and you can feel everything is perfect fundamentally, you know the ball is going to go in. I've done it in pickup.

    I actually think Hayward's confidence is rubbing off on Foye.

    The thing is though, he hadn't even received the pass at that point. A lot of things could still go wrong, he could miss handled the pass, he could fumble, he's not squared to the basket going up, etc, etc.

    Seems to me he went from mentally thinking about "trying to make the shot" to "I'm 100% confident it'll go in".

    Shooting is 80% mental, 20% physical, so that's a pretty big leap IMO.

    What else is he going to say?

    "Nah, I felt really lucky that I made a wide open 18 foot jump shot. Initially I thought I was going to miss it because my dad called me loser in the 8th grade, but I guess I just got lucky."

    The original question was "When did you know the ball was going to go in?"

    He could have said.. "Yeah I knew it when it left my hand".

    But he didn't say that. Instead he said "I knew it when I was coming around clean off the curl / screen".

    Hayward needs to learn how to handle the ball, or when to attack. He has alright dribbling ability 1-on-1, but in traffic he is absolutely terrible. Way to high and slow of a dribble.

    That's my point though, in the last Kings game he wasn't even shooting that well. So for him to admit that he was confident the ball would go in even before shooting it is quite revealing about his mental state ATM. All the previous shots don't matter when you're trying to make the current shot.

    I agree. Corbin is looking a lot better, where the players just can't hit shots lately.
    Imagine that...... the Jazz can't hit shots no matte how many three point shooters they bring in.

    Actually Foye and Marvin's 3 pointers kept us in the game for a quarter in Sacramento in the beginning. But you can't rely always on this 3's, you got to have a game on defense and offense.
