Jazz beat Celtics 123-115 in Hayward’s return to Utah

Celtics takeaways Gordon Hayward’s playmaking a sign of his continuing recovery

The Utah Jazz and the Boston Celtics squared off Friday night in what was the first game for Gordon Hayward back in Salt Lake City. Hayward didn't receive the warmest of welcomes in Salt Lake City as he was greeted by a chorus of boos during player introductions.

Literally, every single time Hayward touched the ball, had his name announced or was spotlighted on the jumbotron, a choir of boos showered throughout the arena. You can imagine he knew what that would mean. And now: "Game on".

Hayward broke his ankle in Boston's first game last season and missed the rest of the year.

The outstanding performance continued what has been an excellent season for the Australian veteran, who is averaging a career-best 12.6 points per game in 11 starts for the Jazz this season.

We see these types of freaky fan dances often throughout the National Basketball Association season, but they're usually scripted and lame.

In limited minutes, as he continues to work his way back from his injury, Hayward scored 13 points on 3-for-9 shooting from the field.

The set in the mountains west of Los Angeles dates to 1927 when Paramount Pictures leased the ranch and began making films there. HBO said it did not know extent of the damage and expressed concern for "all those affected by these frightful fires".

The 31-year-old Australian was lights out from the field, knocking down 10 of his 14 field goals including five three-point shots to go along with five rebounds and an equal team-high seven assists.

Jae Crowder was also huge off the bench with 20 points, six rebounds and four assists against his former Celtics team. "I think over the past couple of games, we've done that". The Celtics gave up a season-high 35 points in the third quarter.

Terry Rozier scored 22 points and Jayson Tatum added 21 for the Celtics, who have now lost three of the four games they have played on their current five-game road trip. Ingles accounted for the first three long-distance baskets, highlighting a 20-point first half for him.

"He brings a lot of strengths to the table off general actions and pick and rolls where he can be the playmaker for others as well as himself and I think that early on I think we've done a decent job but I think we could do a lot better as a staff in helping so hopefully that'll be the case and we didn't expect this to be an overnight thing".

But the Jazz had enough energy to finish off the victory.
