Hayward: When teams get physical, they have to give up something because they are overplaying & we haven’t figured out the way to attack it.
End of 3: Thunder 74, Jazz 62. Reggie Jackson has 20 points on 16 shots for OKC. Hayward leads Utah w/ 16. Just 2 pts from the Jazz bench.
Halftime: Thunder 56, Jazz 48. Hayward leads all scorers with 16, but he has left points out there. He's 5-of-10 from the free throw line.
Gordon Hayward may get 40 at this rate
Will Compton wore Adam Hayward's jersey at practice. Considers him his best friend on the team. Draped the jersey on a chair in meetings.
Gordon Hayward goes 2 for 11 has 3 turns and 1 assist and still has the best plus minus of any player on the team
Snyder's message is simple: "compete every play." Chewed out Gobert & Hayward for turning away at the end of Q3, letting Brooks get a shot.
Jimmy Butler defended Gordon Hayward tonight better than anyone has this season. Didn't let him get to the rim, scored 25 himself
Gordon Hayward on the last shot: It was a great look. It's a shot I'm capable of making. We just dug ourselves a hole
Hayward: "It was a great look. It's a shot I'm capable of hitting. We just dug ourselves a hole."
Butler Rose Gasol. Strong. Butler took Hayward out of the game. Mirotic developing in front of our eyes
Bulls win...Hayward misses top side 3 for the win....97-95 Rose-18 Butler-25 Gasol-23-9
Great look by Hayward. My son is bummed.

Gordon Hayward misses a three at the buzzer, and the Jazz fall short tonight, 97-95 to the Bulls
Hayward gets a clean-ish look, but he's falling right to left and the shot is no good. Jazz lose this one 97-95.
Burke, Ingles, Novak and Favors on the floor. Hayward to inbound.
We've seen a Hayward buzzer-beater and a Burke buzzer-beater this year. Both of those with the game tied, though. Jazz down w/ 18 sec. left.
Maybe Jazz should inbound to Hayward, who could drive into the lane, push Butler aside with his left hand and then make a jumper.
Bad news: Hayward gets a wide-open look for 3 and can't hit it. He's 2-for-10 tonight. Good news: Jazz are staying competitive without him.
Jimmy Butler tonight (no extension) 40 minutes, 23 points, 7/13 from field. Gordon Hayward (max extension) 33 minutes, 6 pts 2/10 from field
