Jazz's Gordon Hayward: Stays hot with 24 points in Monday's win
Hayward recorded 24 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 12-15 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 34 minutes in Monday's 112-103 win over the Timberwolves.
Following a brief downturn in productivity in the middle of the month, Hayward is closing out November on a high note with four-straight games of 20 points or more. During that span, he's also averaged 6.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 three-pointers while shooting 46.9 percent from the field and 88.2 percent from the free-throw line, demonstrating the well-roundedness of his skill set. It's worth noting that following a long absence due to a sprained thumb, George Hill has returned to play in the last three games while scoring 20 or more points of his own in each contest, suggesting that he and Hayward will both be able to maintain their productivity even as they assume similarly high-volume roles in the Jazz attack.
