Hayward recorded 38 points (16-24 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 37 minutes during a 107-100 loss to the Pacers on Monday. Hayward set a new career high with 38 points but the team still lost as no one else scored more than 16 points. After a two-game shooting slump in which he had shot a combined 9-of-30 from the floor, he was extremely efficient in obtaining his 11th game this season with at least 30 points. Expect a strong finish to the season for Hayward with the team battling for playoff positioning.
Hayward scored 25 points (9-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go with nine rebounds, eight assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 97-83 win against the Pistons. The Jazz were never in danger of losing this game thanks in large part to Hayward's massive stat line, as he seriously flirted with a triple-double. He's been red-hot lately, scoring 20-plus points in five of the last six games. The Jazz will travel to Cleveland on Tuesday, which bodes well for Hayward, as he torched the Cavs with 28 points and shot 83.3 percent from the floor in their last meeting.
Hayward scored 27 points (9-17 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT) to go along with four assists and three rebounds during Monday's 114-108 victory over the Clippers. Hayward wasn't particularly productive in terms of rebounds and assists, but he still led the team in scoring while knocking down four treys for the first time this month. This was a nice bounce-back effort after a lackluster showing against the Thunder on Saturday, and excluding that effort, Hayward is averaging 24 points (on 47 percent shooting) and 2.8 treys per game over his last four.
Hayward finished with nine points (3-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, and one steal across 21 minutes during Saturday's 112-104 loss to the Thunder. Coach Quin Snyder was without his starting frontcourt of Derrick Favors (knee) and Rudy Gobert (knee) Saturday against the Thunder -- seemingly a prime opportunity for Hayward to catch big minutes and high usage. However, in a puzzling twist, Hayward only ended up playing 21 minutes and contributing a modest nine points. Coach Snyder played his entire available roster during matchup, so it's possible that he used Saturday as an opportunity to get some deep reserves more experience before the playoffs. Regardless, Hayward's performance is likely a disappointment for those who started him Saturday, but probably won't be a sign of things to come.
Hayward posted 23 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and a block across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 115-108 win over the Rockets. Although Hayward's point totals have been a bit erratic since the All-Star break, Hayward is a model of consistency when it comes to contributing in multiple categories as he's averaged 22.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.1 steals so far this season. He provided yet another balanced stat line tonight against the Rockets as the Jazz posted their fourth straight win. He'll continue to be a strong play when the Jazz meet the Thunder on Saturday.
