David Locke

Quin Snyder pre game says the big ask on Gordon Hayward right now is off ball defense.

Tony Jones

Snyder says he wants Gordon Hayward to continue to improve off the ball defensively. Hard when asking so much of him

Aaron Falk

Q says "it probably won't be the starting lineup we'll have the rest of the year," but Exum starts again w/ Ingles, Hayward, Kanter & Fav.

Mike Prada

Gordon Hayward was tremendous in the fourth quarter last night. Jazz nearly blew the game but Hayward showed how much he's grown.

Zach Lowe

Wild finish in Milwaukee tonight. Some really nice playmaking from Hayward until Utah's offense turned to poop down the stretch. Good road W

Tony Jones

Gordon Hayward said tonight "was a great win"

Tony Jones

Both Gordon Hayward and Trevor Booker were very complementary of Exum's performance tonight

Charles F. Gardner

Hayward with 22 pts, 6 assists and 5 rebounds. Just scored on a drive and earlier found Kanter with pinpoint pass for 3-point play.

David Locke

Hayward has scored or assisted all 8 on 8-0 Jzz run. 22-5-6 for GH. 4th time this year has gone 20-5-5 - all on the road #UTAatMIL

Charles F. Gardner

Jazz leading 99-91 and fans starting to head to exits. Gordon Hayward has taken over in fourth quarter.

Ted Davis

#MILvUTA Hayward taking over here in the 4th Jazz 99 Bucks 91 3:01 left @620wtmj

Tony Jones

Hayward has taken over in the fourth...Has 11 of his 22 points...don't look now, but the Jazz have a 99-91 lead with 3:09 remaining

Tony Jones

Hayward is ticked at himself over that last turnover

Charles F. Gardner

Ersan block on Hayward the highlight of the opening minutes. Few other highlights for Bucks, who trail 15-10.

Tony Jones

And Exum picks up an assist on the break to Hayward...6 points and an assist for Exum

Tony Jones

Exum is already a good defender, so starting him will help the team out that way. Expect Joe Ingles and Gordon Hayward to handle the ball

David Locke

Snyder thinks Exum burden offensively is lessen with ball handlers Ingles and Hayward. Plus, Exum strength defensively in the first unit

David Locke

Jazz starters will be Dante Exum, Joe Ingles, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Rudy Gobert

Aaron Falk

Hayward: "I think LeBron can pretty much bully anybody if he wants to." sltrib.com/blogs/jazznote… http://t.co/0TEuHWLifX

Aaron Falk

So Hayward saying getting stronger helped him play better against the strongest player in the NBA became a thing today. 82's a lot of games.

Jason Lloyd

Jason Lloyd

LeBron had a little staredown for Hayward following that dunk.

Ethan J. Skolnick

LeBron threw that dunk down on Hayward w/ a little extra force. Hayward said after last game that LeBron couldn't "bully" him anymore.

Joe Vardon

And with THAT dunk, LeBron just proved himself a liar when it comes to Hayward bit.ly/1Cc6hfz

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cavaliers lead Jazz, 53-40, at the half. LeBron w/ 15/4/5. J.R. Smith continues playing well (9 & 5). Hayward w/ 9 for Jazz.

Tony Jones

Hayward got mauled at the rim there, no call, and JR Smith got to the line when Exum grazed him.

Tony Jones

lol. The lack of respect Gordon Hayward gets from officials is bordering on the ridiculous lmao

Tony Jones

Regarding that guys LeBron James: Gordon Hayward said it would be important to keep him out of transition

David Locke

As Jazz prepare for LeBron available wings include Gordon Hayward, 3 guys who weren't in training camp and Ian Clark. Tough task #UTAatCLE

Joe Vardon

LeBron is still sick but will play. Kyrie's sick but should also play. And LeBron "doesn't care" about Gordon Hayward bit.ly/1Cc6hfz

Dave McMenamin

LeBron on Gordon Hayward saying James can't "bully" him physically anymore: "If it made him feel better by saying that, then good for him"

Aaron Falk

Utah is 14-27 but Hayward sees progress: I think we're a lot farther along than people thought we'd be at this point. sltrib.com/sports/2076322…

Paul Garcia

Burke+Hood+Exum finished 6/20 for 15 points. Hayward 4/15 from 10 points. Kanter+ Favors 6/17 for 13 points: projectspurs.com/2015-articles/…

Tony Jones

Hayward on Hood: Rodney's a big part of what we're trying to do. He's had a tough year so far. It hurts him and it hurts us

Tony Jones

Hood left AT&T Arena on crutches....His teammates said they feel bad for him. "It's terrible" Gordon Hayward said.

Tony Jones

Hayward has all five of Utah's points..

Tony Jones

The Jazz will go with Burke, Ingles, Hayward, Kanter and Favors tonight against the world champion Spurs

David Locke

When Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors are on the floor together Jazz offensive rating is a 109.7 (only 4 teams better for season)

Bill Oram

Used to cover Jazz daily, see them less now. But the growth of @Gordon Hayward is really impressive. A legitimate franchise cornerstone now.
