Jazz G Rodney Hood on rookie season: 'I felt I grew a lot'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jazz guard Rodney Hood dealt with multiple injuries during his rookie season that limited him to 50 games, but he was able to close the season on a strong note and is looking forward to an injury-free sophomore season, the Deseret News reports.

"I wish I could have played a full season, but at the same time, I felt I grew a lot," Hood said after the season. "Mentally I learned the game and towards the end I got a lot more comfortable. I don’t feel like it was necessarily a wasted season."

Hood averaged 8.7 points per game on 41.4 percent shooting from the field while knocking down 36.5 percent of his 3-point attempts. He also managed to score 20.1 points per game on 51.5 percent shooting during a five-game stretch in April.

"I’m glad he’s been able to stay healthy these last few weeks because I know how badly he’s been wanting to play," coach Quin Snyder said. "He’s clearly capable of putting the ball in the basket, he’s got the ability to create his shot and has a mid-range game. There’s not a lot of guys who have a real consistent mid-range game and he’s able to do that."

Hood may be in line for a bench role with Alec Burks set to return from a shoulder injury, but he said he wouldn't mind the change in role.

"I don’t have a preference," he said. "I came off the bench and I started. We want Alec back healthy. He’s been great in my improvement. Regardless of what happens we’re both going to be effective on the court. He was starting before he got hurt, so it's probably going to happen. I’m comfortable coming off the bench or starting if I have to step up."

Jazz F Gordon Hayward says next season's goal is to make playoffs
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Jazz forward Gordon Hayward spoke to reporters Thursday and said making the playoffs next season is the team's main goal, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.

"The experience we're getting as a group is happening along the way," Hayward said. "Just because we played well after the All-Star break, nobody is going to be satisfied with that."

Hayward feels he can still grow as a player and he credits coach Quin Snyder with improving his mid-range game and reading pick and rolls, while making the game easier to play.

"I feel like there's still a lot of room for me to improve," he said. "I'll take a month off and get right to it."
