Trey Burke's buzzer-beater lifts Jazz to win, steals spotlight from Hayward-Melo duel | Deseret News po.st/oiFgiV via @deseretnews

Aaron Falk

Hayward & Melo went toe to toe. Then Trey stepped back & drained this buzzer-beater. My story: sltrib.com/sports/1825261… http://t.co/9RH8GyzY3f

Brian Mahoney

Hayward hit the game-winner against Cleveland, and this time the Jazz went to Burke to beat the Knicks at the buzzer. bigstory.ap.org/article/d40ae2…

Brett Pollakoff

Great quote from Gordon Hayward, who admitted to being sore after a physical battle trying to guard Melo: “He’s a hassle down there.”

Aaron Falk

Some post-game thoughts from a sick, sore and victorious Gordon Hayward: sltrib.com/blogs/jazznote…

Aaron Falk

Hayward, grinning: "We’re going to have to be able to get a stop when we’re up 3 sometime or another so we don’t have to hit game-winners.”

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward (33 points) had to battle a cold and Carmelo Anthony (46 points) tonight at The Garden. Hayward: "I'm sore."

Tony Jones

So Gordon Hayward and Carmelo Anthony had a good ole fashioned shootout?

David Locke

Gordon Hayward 33 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assist on 11 of 18 shooting. Take Notice NBA !!!!! G-Time has grown up

Adam Zagoria

Trey Burke just hit a 2 at the buzzer that won the game 102-100 for Utah. Knicks have lost 7 straight. Gordon Hayward had 33.

Aaron Falk

Melo went right at Favors for a quick bucket. Knicks foul & Hayward hits a pair of FTs. Jazz back up 3.

Scott Cacciola

Been transfixed by Hayward's hair all game.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward FTs with 16.2 left: make, make. Jazz lead Knicks 100-97.

Jody Genessy

Carmelo Anthony has 43 points. Gordon Hayward has 31.

Jared Zwerling

Someone ask Gordon Hayward how he's feeling tomorrow. Getting all of Melo & his head fakes in the post down the stretch. Letting it all out.

Aaron Falk

Hayward & Anthony going head-to-head down the stretch. After a Hayward step-back, Melo's free throws have the Knicks down one w/ 24.1 left.

Jody Genessy

Melo posts up Hayward, who fouls Anthony with 24.3 to go. This duel is highly entertaining.

Brian Mahoney

Nice battle between Anthony (39) and Hayward (31) tonight, who both have their season highs. Jazz up 96-93 with a half-minute to go.

Chris Herring

Hayward's got a season-high 31 pts tonight, too.

John Schuhmann

Mean baseline drive by Melo, followed by a bold step-back by Hayward. Jazz up 3 w/ :31.4 left.

David Locke

Season high for Gordon Hayward with 31 points. Clutch again late in the game. #UTAatNYK

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward is playing like an All-Star.

Jody Genessy

Melo just got past Hayward for a dunk. Hayward responds with a jumper. Jazz lead 96-93 with 31.4 seconds left.

Aaron Falk

Jazz up 94-89 with 2:10 left in regulation. Another big night for Hayward: 29 pts, 6 ast, 4 stl, 3 reb. Now can the Jazz make good on it?

David Locke

Really awesome to watch the growth of Gordon Hayward into an NBA star. What a great experience for Jazz fans who have seen him develop

Adam Zagoria

Gordon Hayward is giving the #Knicks fits here w/ 29 pts and Derrick Favors has 19 & 11. Melo has 35, but Utah leads by 4 in final mins.

Jonah Ballow

Watch Melo-Hayward. This matchup is heating up.

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward is taking over this fourth quarter.

Aaron Falk

Hayward's eye/vision good enough that he just hit a pair of FTs.

Aaron Falk

Oh, man. Just saw the replay of the Hayward bucket. Got smacked pretty hard in the right eye. Maybe a fortunate timeout by the Knicks after.

Jody Genessy

Jazz regain lead at 83-81 on a Gordon Hayward drive. 5:33 remaining.

Aaron Falk

End of 3: Jazz 75, Knicks 72. Melo leads all scorers with 29. For the Jazz, Hayward has 20 and Favors has 14. No one else in double figures.

Jody Genessy

This is a pretty entertaining matchup between Gordon Hayward Carmelo Anthony. Wonder if we'll see it again here during All-Star Weekend.

Jody Genessy

For some weird reason, Gordon Hayward didn't like getting called for a foul after Carmelo Anthony led with his elbow.

Chris Herring

Melo's defensive effort on that Hayward jumper was ... uninspiring.

Aaron Falk

End of 2: Jazz up 48-47 despite 14 first-half turnovers. Hayward has 14 pts, 4 reb & 2 ast.

Steve Popper

So I turned to @Chris Herring, "Tim guarding Hayward alert" and within 5 seconds Hayward hit a 3-pointer. If sports betting becomes legal...

Jody Genessy

Two consecutive steals. Two fastbreaks. Two bad passes (from Joe Ingles and Gordon Hayward) to Dante Exum.

Aaron Falk

End of 1: Jazz 31, Knicks 23. Hayward leads Utah w/ 7. Anthony has 9 for the Knicks.

Jody Genessy

Aerodynamic Gordon Hayward just blew by Carmelo Anthony for a bucket while getting fouled. He missed the free throw but followed with a 3.

Alan Hahn

3 eras ago. RT @Lumbardh: @Alan Hahn are we no longer MT'n the fact that @Gordon Hayward could have been a Knick?..via the old marbury trade.

David Locke

TIP OFF - weareutahjazz.com/lockedonjazz/?… - Gobert at the rim and multiple actions, Jazz by quarters, Smart shots and Hayward on floor off floor

David Locke

New blog entry from @Gordon Hayward is really well done. Honest, open, revealing. This is how it should be done gordonhayward20.com/2014/11/13/les…

Mary Schmitt Boyer/Jodie Valade

Gordon Hayward: LeBron James "can't bully me as much as he used to" ow.ly/2QEyEo

Aaron Falk

Hayward inbounds to Trey Burke who tries to bank in a contested 3 from the right angle. No good! Jazz fall 100-97 in Atlanta.

Aaron Falk

Hayward was 35-of-36 on free throws before tonight, but somehow he's missed all three of his attempts so far.

Tony Jones

Jazz with a 7-0 run to start the third. There's a reason for this: Gordon Hayward is now back on the floor

Jody Genessy

Gordon Hayward returns. Gordon Hayward hits a 3, gets a steal and dunks.

Kris Willis

Probably not ideal to go under a screen on Gordon Hayward
