Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 32, Lakers 20. Hayward has 8p/3a/2r to lead Utah. Burks w/ 6p/3r. Kobe has six points on 2-of-7 shooting.

Aaron Falk

Bad pass by Hayward and, thankfully, quick hands by the guy with cane.

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward has dominated this first quarter in every facet. Impressive to watch

Tony Jones

heck of a sequence for Hayward. Snaps the defensive rebound, gets team into offense and great pass to Clark for open three

Bill Oram

This Kobe/Hayward matchup goes back to the summer of '12, when Kobe led USA to Olympics & Hayward was on practice team. Been fun ever since

Mike Trudell

Kobe gambled off Gordon Hayward to try for a steal, and Hayward hit an open 3 as a result. Bryant answered w/a J, Utah up 20-15.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward waited too long to dish off to Alec Burks on that 2-on-1 fast break. Jazz are off and running tonight.

Jody Genessy

ICYMI, the Jazz are starting Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors. Trey Burke is getting a rest.

Mike Trudell

Dante Exum is listed as a starter for Utah tonight, along with Alec Burks (who missed last game vs. LAL), Hayward, Favors and Kanter.

Zac Boyer

Clark, T.Williams, Hayward out for the coin toss.

Alex Kennedy

That's Utah's first loss of the preseason (4-1). Gordon Hayward finished with 22 points, 6 rebounds, 6 steals and 4 assists vs the Clippers.

Aaron Falk

Crawford for 3 and we're all tied up at 92. 1:14 on the clock. Jazz going with Hayward, Clark, Favors, Burke and Gobert.

Aaron Falk

Hayward and Favors coming up with (preseason) big buckets down the stretch here. Jazz up 90-89 with 2:56 on the clock.

Steve Luhm

Gordon Hayward sunburn reminds me of Walt Palmer. Long-ago rookie sitting poolside. Sloan sees him & tells him to get inside. ...

David Locke

Gordon Hayward first half - 13 pts 4 rebs 2 ast and 3 sts #UTAatLAC

Aaron Falk

Halftime: Jazz 47, Clippers 46. Hayward has 13p/4r/2a. Exum 9p/2a in 10 minutes. Griffin 11 points, Hawes 10, Crawford 10.

Jody Genessy

Clipper Darrell: "Gordon! Do you really think they're worth the money they paid you!?!" Shockingly, Hayward didn't respond from the FT line.

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 22, Clippers 21. A higher intensity Clippers than we saw on Monday. Hayward with 5p/3r/2a. Griffin with 9 points.

Jody Genessy

Later in the game, Snyder gave Hayward a list of three observations for the swingman to think about as he headed to the bench in a blowout.

Aaron Falk

Hayward on guarding Kobe: "I’m a little bit stronger [than past years]. I don’t think he pushes me around as easily." sltrib.com/sltrib/blogsja…

Lang Greene

Interesting. Gordon Hayward's shooting percentage has declined every season since entering league 2011: 49% 2012: 46% 2013: 44% 2014: 41%

Jody Genessy

Jazz coach Quin Snyder made Kobe smile when he took Gordon Hayward out and replaced him with rookie Rodney Hood. "Young fella. Go get him!"

Bill Oram

That was probably the most Kobe-esque move of the night. Lost Hayward on screen & showed he can still create off dribble.

Mike Trudell

After working on ref Ed Malloy for a while, Kobe got a foul called on Hayward, and hit 2 FT's. He'd missed 4 earlier, and is now 5 for 9.

Bill Oram

This is a two-man game right now. Kobe v. Hayward is awesome.

Mike Trudell

Hayward let Bryant shoot, which turned into his fourth FG, to give him 11 points and get LAL back within 12.

Bill Oram

Always heard good stories about Kobe/Hayward matchups in Team USA camps. Kobe big Hayward fan.

Jody Genessy

Man, Gordon Hayward and Kobe Bryant are battling against each other for position. Entertaining to watch.

Aaron Falk

Rodney Hood started this one guarding Kobe, one of his favorite players growing up. Hayward quickly shifted onto Bryant though.

Tony Jones

Unless Hayward starts out on Kobe

Jody Genessy

Jazz starters vs Lakers: Trey Burke, Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, Derrick Favors. No Alec Burks (shoulder) tonight. 8 pm, NBATV

Jody Genessy

Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward were guests on "Ellen" for JP Gibson's special. Favors: "It was all about JP. It was a good experience."

Jody Genessy

Snyder: "I'm in a video game? Maybe Gordon will start listening.” Hayward: "I don’t think that’s going to help him." deseretnews.com/article/865613…

Jody Genessy

ICYMI: Quin Snyder joked that being in NBA2K15 might help him get Gordon Hayward to listen to him. GH's response: deseretnews.com/article/865613…

Better than LeBron James? Utah Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward claims he is (but there is a but) po.st/fOSO1V

Jody Genessy

In a story that will post soon, Gordon Hayward didn't just talk some TIC trash to LeBron. He also had some choice words for Coach Snyder.

David Locke

Gordon Hayward 63 front court touches per game last year only non point guard with more was LeBron James

Monte Poole

More Bay Area love: Tennyson High's Doug Henry and Hayward High's Don Wakamatsu. East Bay coaching fingerprints all over these #Royals.

Aaron Falk

After challenging LeBron (in a video game), Gordon Hayward says, "It's comical some of the tweets I've received." sltrib.com/sltrib/jazz/58…

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward addressed his blog today after practice. Said the whole thing was tongue-in-cheek, was shocked to see the site crash
