Gordon Hayward Celtics Jazz

Jazz fans booed every move of Hayward, who left Utah for Boston via free agency before the start of last season. Now, he's 100 percent healthy and able to take the floor, meaning that Utah fans get to welcome him back for the first time since he left.

Celtics: Smart set season high with 10 assists. - Crowder on whether his 20-point performance was motivated by a desire to show the Celtics they made a mistake when they traded him to Cleveland before the 2017-18 season.

As for the Celtics, they've now lost three of their last four games and sit a disappointing 7-5 through 12 games this season. Ingles has 512 3-pointers with the Jazz. He is averaging 22.4 points, 4.4 assists, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.8 steals after the first nine games of the year. Hayward didn't receive the warmest of welcomes in Salt Lake City as he was greeted by a chorus of boos during player introductions.

"I really just focused on some of our game plan execution stuff, which we didn't end up doing that great but I had my wife here, which was good to have her", he said.


Donovan Mitchell added 21 points for Utah, Jae Crowder had 20, and Rudy Gobert finished with 17 points and 15 rebounds. It was so bad at times that even Hayward found humor in how persistent they were all throughout the game. "I think over the past couple of games, we've done that". The Celtics gave up a season-high 35 points to the Jazz in the third quarter.

They held the dynamic Mitchell to just six shots until one minute remaining in the third quarter.

"I think obviously Gordon's transitioning back into playing and transitioning back with us", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of Hayward. Utah finished with a 45-28 advantage on the boards. "I thought we actually did an OK job on the initial drives in isolation, but we didn't get rebounds in a lot of cases". The Jazz finished with 50 points in the paint.
