Jazz thump Celtics in Hayward’s return to Utah

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

Boston will look to right the ship Sunday night when it wraps up its five-game western road trip against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Donovan Mitchell had 21 points while former Celtic Jae Crowder scored 20 points, and Ricky Rubio added 17 as the Jazz won consecutive games after losing four in a row.

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. "I think over the past couple of games, we've done that".

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

"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". Mitchell ignited the spurt by draining three free throws and driving for a layup on back-to-back possessions. Derrick Favours kept it going with back-to-back baskets that gave the Jazz a double digit lead and finished the run off with a pair of free throws that put Utah ahead 75-57 just four minutes into the quarter. "We just didn't have a presence out there, so they played freely".

The Jazz eventually built their lead to 20 points, going up 83-63 on a layup from Crowder, before Boston rallied in the fourth quarter. Rozier buried a 3-pointer to cap off the run and cut Utah's lead to 100-96. "I can't tell you how much it means. I'll leave it at that".

To be fair to Gordon Hayward, he's still working his way into game shape after missing 81 contests in 2017-18. Hayward scored his first bucket off a fastbreak layup off an assist from Jaylen Brown at 10:37 in the opening quarter. Boston had 28 points off 17 Utah turnovers.

Hayward said he caught up with his former Jazz teammate and close friend Joe Ingles - who tied his career-high of 27 points versus Boston.

Jazz: Ingles made five 3-pointers, moving him ahead of Deron Williams (511) on Utah's 3-pointers list. So, it is no surprise Jazz fans went extra insane after the sophomore made a shot over Hayward. The Jazz scored 50 points in the paint.
