Gordon Hayward goes wild against Celtics, in loss
While Brandon Bass made a series of big shots for the Celtics in the fourth quarter, Gordon Hayward did just about everything — except win — for the Jazz in the clutch. The fourth-year swingman had the ball in his hands on every Jazz possession and forced the Celtics to play to the end for their first victory. Hayward’s final line was 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists, but the box score didn’t do his performance justice. He played the entire fourth quarter, scoring eight points, nabbing five rebounds and dealing out three assists without a turnover. He added a steal, which led to a layup during Utah’s fourth-quarter comeback, to boot.
