Gordon Hayward Gets Playing Time: The Downbeat #1435

Gordon Hayward Gets Playing Time: The Downbeat #1435 WooHoo live basketball. Full highlights below. Gordon Hayward played 14 minutes and had 4 points, 2 steals, 1 rebound, 1 assist in a blowout against the Dominican Republic last night.  Full box score here.  He played 10 of his 14 minutes in the fourth quarter when the game was out of reach. The national team plays again on Friday.  I would love to have a Utah Jazz player on the Olympic team, but more importantly I love that Hayward is playing with and against the best (-KD) basketball players in the world. He is learning how they...

Gordon Hayward survives initial trim, could make Team USA roster

Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski needs someone to step in and be a versatile combination forward after Paul George went down for with one of the most gruesome leg injuries in recent memory. Even before George broke his leg on the stanchion at Thomas & Mack Arena last Friday, Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward had a chance to make the team that will represent the country in the upcoming World Cup. But with Coach K now needing guys who can play multiple positions, Hayward’s standing on this team ...

Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward is ready to lead

What time is it? It's G-Time I was thinking of starting this post off with the title "Gordon Hayward likes pie" but that's not the site I want to run. The site I do want to run is hopefully an educational place where Utah Jazz fans from all over the world can get news, information, and analysis. But I do want to do it in increasingly unique ways (hence, the diversity of content types we have here). So what does this have to do with Gordon Hayward and pie? Well, I was looking at how experienced he is. And really, he is. He's a vet. He's going into his fifth season, and the guy working out...

Utah Jazz: Trey Burke in Select company at USA camp

Las Vegas • Two years ago, while participating in the LeBron James Skills Camp for college players, Trey Burke observed Team USA’s training camp in advance of the Olympics.

Prediction: Utah Jazz Forward Gordon Hayward Makes Team USA The Downbeat #1418

MyLo makes bold predictions. Gordon Hayward has been in the news a lot this summer whether it has been because of his OMG LOOK AT DAT CONTRACT DOE near max contract or his inclusion on the USA team before it makes its final cut.  Both have been overshadowed by his less than subpar 2013-2014 campaign as the go to player for the Utah Jazz.  Gordon Hayward has every right to be questioned as to whether he can live up to the billing of a near max player and if he can even be considered to be part of the final USA team.  So here am I, MyLo, making a bold prediction.  Hayward's contract...
