Quin Snyder on Hayward's 3-11: "The last thing I want him to do is think about his shooting percentage." OK, I'll do that.

Aaron Falk

I now regret not asking every single Jazz player about him. RT @andyblarsen @Aaron Falk Hayward called him "the left-handed kid".

Tony Jones

So Gordon Hayward has 8 rebounds and 6 assists. Great numbers. But the 3-10 and 0-3 from 3, tho

Jonathan Feigen

Guy next to me just complained about Gordon Hayward's 2 of 9, 6 point night. "That's a million dollars a point."

Tony Jones

Hayward is 2-7 with 6 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 24 minutes right now

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward is ticked — and barking at refs, which he rarely does — after Dwight Howard wasn't called for a foul while blocking him.

Jonathan Feigen

No call on Hayward drive has Jazz fans sounding like old days. Well, not really, but closer.

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward and Trey Burke each struggling, a combined 3-9

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Rockets 58, Jazz 50. Burks 10p/2r, Favors 8p/2, Hayward 6p/3r/2a. Howard 15p, Harden 10p, Papanikolaou 12p on 4/4 triples.

Jody Genessy

Some habits are hard to break. Gordon Hayward just missed a long jumper just inside of the 3-point line.

Tony Jones

Favors with 8, Kanter with 6, Hayward and Burks with 4 each for the Jazz in the first period...

Aaron Falk

Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward, sporting some new Jazz warmups, take the mic at center court before tipoff to thank the fans at ESA.

Jody Genessy

Tonight's season-opening starting lineups: Jazz: Burke, Burks, Hayward, Kanter, Favors Rockets: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Jones, Howard.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward & Jeremy Evans are no longer locker neighbors. GH joked it's Evans' fault. JE said he doesn't earn enough $ to be by Hayward.

Tony Jones

Burke, Burks, Hayward, Kanter and Favors are the starters tonight

Aaron Falk

Jazz will start Burke, Burks, Hayward, Favors and Kanter. Newcomer Joe Ingles is active. Inactives: Jordan Hamilton and Toure' Murry.

Tony Jones

Trevor Ariza - a long versatile defender - will start on Gordon Hayward tonight. Huge matchup

Jody Genessy

Hayward's advice to Kanter? "Just not worry about (the contract). It’s over with and now he just has to play this season as a Jazz player."

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward: "Every opening night you get a little nervous. You get some butterflies, but it’s definitely exciting."

Aaron Falk

Hayward's advice to Kanter, on facing RFA: Don't think about it. which is easy “as long as you guys don’t ask questions about it.”

Jody Genessy

Utah Jazz roster: Booker, Burke, Burks, Clark, Evans, Exum, Favors, Gobert, Hayward, Hood, Kanter, Murry, Novak. Inactive: Hamilton, Ingles.

David Locke

On this another film session taking place with Gordon Hayward. 1 of 5 taking place after practice instagram.com/p/uqwySzhrpd/

Jody Genessy

Trey Burke. Alec Burks. Gordon Hayward. Swish, swish, swish. vine.co/v/OMqiwV0x5Wi

Jody Genessy

Utah Jazz notes: Good sign: Gordon Hayward shooting well in traffic (on I-15, to be precise) po.st/91xzs1 http://t.co/9lFW0oV0pE

Jody Genessy

I might not be able to interview Gordon Hayward all season if the Colts come back to beat the Steelers.

Aaron Falk

Jazz will take 50%. RT @kylegoon Gordon Hayward: Flashing the U, but not wearing black. 1-for-2 tonight, still a good average for a guard.

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward had 24 points, five rebounds and three assists tonight

Aaron Falk

Final: Suns 105, Jazz 100. Utah finishes the preseason 5-3. Hayward had 24p/5r/3a. Burks w/ 20 points. Thomas leads Suns w/ 19 points.

Aaron Falk

Hayward very controlled to stop a 2-on-1, then he gets an and-one on the other end. Jazz within a bucket, 99-96.

Paul Coro

Bledsoe is covering Hayward in this three-point guard look. Hayward throws a pass away.

Paul Coro

PHX 77, UTA 77 after 3Q. Bledsoe: 11 pts (9 in 3Q), Thomas: 10 pts (6 in 3Q); Dragic: 15 pts, Markieff: 11 pts, 5 reb; Hayward: 19p/5r/3a.

Tony Jones

Jazz on a 6-0 run, capped by Gordon Hayward's jumper...now lead 62-55

Aaron Falk

Hayward with a quick outlet to Booker. Not that this is how Snyder measures pace, but those are the Jazz's first fast-break points tonight.

Paul Coro

UTA 51, PHX 47 at half. Dragic: 11p, 2a; Markieff: 7p, 2r; Green: 7p, 3r; Hayward: 13p, 5-6 FG; Kanter: 8p, 3r. Fastbreak pts: PHX 6, UTA 0.

Aaron Falk

Trey Burke showing some strength to get to the paint, absorb contact & still score. He has 7p/2r. Hayward 13/1/1. Jazz up 51-47 at halftime.

Tony Jones

Jazz go small. Hayward moves to power forward

Tony Jones

Jazz up 49-39 over Phoenix with 2:42 remaining in the first half. Hayward with 13 to lead all scorers. 5-6 from the field

Paul Coro

UTA 33, PHX 28 after 1Q. Green: 7 pts, 3 reb; Dragic: 7 pts, 2 ast; Kanter: 8 pts; Hayward: 8 pts; PHX: 58 FG%, 5 tov; UTA: 52 FG%, 1 tov.

Aaron Falk

Gordon Hayward with a solid first quarter: 8 points (3/4 shooting), a board and an assist. Jazz up 33-28 on Phoenix after one.

Tony Jones

Hayward and Kanter lead the Jazz with eight points each

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward basically playing point guard with the second unit

Paul Coro

Hayward went for another and-1 jam. It turned more into a layup on Green but it was still a 3-point play. Not a good final D tune-up so far.

Tony Jones

Hayward doing work in this first quarter. getting to the rim at will

Tony Jones

Hayward drives baseline, dunks on Alex Len...gets the foul. Added strength on display

Paul Coro

Hayward used a screen to get by Green, dribbled around Tolliver and dunked through Len's foul. Gulp. Utah 24-15, 4:27 in 1st.

Tony Jones

Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Trevor Booker, Gordon Hayward and Enes Kanter the starting lineup for the Utah Jazz tonight

Paul Coro

The #Suns will try one more experimental lineup tonight at Utah with Gerald Green starting at small forward. Gives him some time on Hayward.
