Gordon Hayward is stepping up, but can he be in the MIP discussion?

Arno at GSOM breaks down the most likely candidates! How good is Utah Jazz frontman Gordon Hayward playing right now? Well, G-Time is averaging 18.7 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 4.6 apg, 1.3 spg, 1.7 3PTA, getting to the line 5.1 times a game, and doing it all while playing 34.6 mpg. He's playing better, scoring more, shooting better, getting more rebounds, getting to the line more -- while playing about 2.0 fewer minutes per game. Yes, he's doing better under Quin Snyder than he did last year with more minutes under Tyrone Corbin. Would you argue that Hayward's improvement this year is significant...

Ways to Win: how can Thunder defeat the Utah Jazz?

The Utah Jazz are a developing team, but they do have a solid roster. Here are this game's Ways to Win. Since everyone needs a bit of optimism every once in a while, let me say this: The Jazz suck too! Just not as much as the Thunder. The 4-7 Jazz is a team still in a rebuilding phase, but they do put out a favorable starting lineup that is capable of torching a strong defense (Thunder are currently 6th in the league, allowing only 94 points per game, which is remarkable defensive resolve considering they are almost always trailing in 4th quarters). Gordon Hayward can throw jabs from the...

Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward played like a star on this Eastern Conference Road Trip

They say money talks, but Gordon Hayward is letting his play do the talking for him Last off-season (before the 2013-2014 season), the Utah Jazz and Gordon Hayward failed to agree to terms on a contract extension. As a result he played last year without the financial security that some of the other players from his 2010 Draft Class had, including teammate Derrick Favors. He would finish the season with eye popping statistics on a bad team, and entered restricted free agency. It wasn't long before the suitors started calling for the USA Basketball camp invitee. The Charlotte Hornets threw...

Jazz need Hayward to fight through fatigue as road trip ends

Toronto • Gordon Hayward is averaging nearly 20 points, six rebounds and five rebounds a game—and Raptors coach Dwane Casey says he totally saw this coming. But what Casey saw as he watched Hayward and the Jazz play at Madison Square Garden caught him by surprise. “If you had told me a year ago he was going to be guarding Carmelo Anthony in the post, I would have thought you were on drugs or something,” Casey said prior to Saturday night’s tipoff at the Air Canada Centre. “… He was taking the bu...

Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward has a fog lifted from him, and other improvements - The Downbeat #1464

The actual improvement within this team, the Fog lifted from Gordon Hayward, three point revolutions, why the Jazz make you happy, and a serious note about depression, mental health, and how you are not alone, even if you feel like it sometimes. Sooooo, the Utah Jazz lost to the Atlanta Hawks, and did so in a very polarizing way. The team was up by 13 points, but their offense (which is still one of the best in the league) screeched to a halt in the fourth quarter. The team did not win, despite playing an exciting and effective game for 43 minutes. Do you want to complain about a team's...

Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward and Dante Exum impressing, but it's early - Downbeat 1462

"...I'm at an airport with terrible internet..." Gordon Hayward has been on a tear. He looks like a max player. Now we know why Michael Jordan threw the everything but the Hornet's Nest's sink at Gordon. Gordon was poised for a breakout year. Look at this year by year comparison.

First of all, NBA2K WHY DOES HAYWARD HAVE A WORSE FREE THROW PERCENTAGE THAN TREY BURKE? Second, Gordon Hayward is becoming automatic from the free throw...

Mavericks vs. Jazz poll: Would you rather have Chandler Parsons or Gordon Hayward?

Chandler Parsons and Gordon Hayward both scored pretty nice contracts over the offseason, but who's the better deal? Chandler Parsons and Gordon Hayward had very similar summers. The two restricted free agents each signed an offer sheet with another team, although unlike Dallas, Utah went ahead and matched on Hayward. Hayward ended up signing a four year, $63 million contract that includes a player option. That's $15.75 million a year. Parsons signed a three year, $46 million deal, also with a player option and worth about $15.33 million a year. Which player would you rather have? Factor...

Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward, Trey Burke should lead minutes distribution this season

Watching guys and working on your game by yourself always helps, but getting on the court is what matters most. The Utah Jazz have a new, positive direction with General Manager Dennis Lindsey being finally allowed to construct the team he wants. Bereft of albatross contracts; pushy player agents; and coaches who put their own agenda ahead of the team long needs of the franchise, it's no secret why. Rookie NBA head coach Quin Synder has assembled a team to help him develop the high value assets that Lindsey has worked so hard to acquire. Everyone is on the same page right now. Including the...
