Hayward Scores 14, Jazz Beat Spurs 101-97 - Apr 13, 2017

Gordon
Hayward
Gordon Hayward (6'8''-G/F-90, college: Butler) can already feel the difference. The seventh-year Jazz forward will play in his first playoff game since 2012 after scoring 14 in a 101-97 regular-season finale win over the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. This postseason will be completely different for the first-time All-Star from the four-game, first-round sweep against the Spurs during his second season in the league. "It's been so long and I was in a completely different role, so it's almost like it's new to me, too," Hayward said. "This time last year we all would have been booking our flights to wherever we were going on vacation. Shipping cars. People would be out of here. "There's definitely a different vibe around the locker room. A different feel." Utah will face the Los Angeles Clippers in the opening round of the playoffs. Los Angeles earned the No. 4 seed by holding the tiebreaker between the teams. "It's the real season now, it starts now," Jazz guard George Hill (6'3''-PG-86, college: IUPUI) said. "It's a game of possessions and every possession matters in the playoffs. You've got to control the game. " (Homecourt) doesn't matter. ... If you want to win championships, you've got to go on the road and win." The win was a season-best ninth straight at home, the longest streak for the Jazz since 2012. Hayward was an efficient 7 for 9 from the field while Rudy Gobert, George Hill and Shelvin Mack all finished with 13 for the Jazz. LaMarcus Aldridge (6'11''-F/C-85, college: Texas) paced the Spurs with 18 points and Kawhi Leonard (6'7''-F-91, college: San Diego St.) added 14. San Antonio faces Memphis in the playoffs on Saturday. "The way that we've approached this is, 'What do we need to do to help us be ready?'" Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "We needed to play and play well and compete. And we needed to come out of the game healthy." Both the Jazz and Spurs played all their players for most of the game, but turned it over to the reserves down the stretch. The Jazz led most of the night before a Kyle Anderson (6'9''-G/F-93, college: UCLA) jumper tied the game at 88-88 with just under five minutes remaining. A Shelvin Mack 3-pointer put the Jazz up 96-94 as the two teams went back and forth down the stretch. San Antonio, however, never led again as a Dante Exum steal with 28 seconds remaining forced the Spurs into a foul situation and the Jazz iced the game from the free-throw line. "Quin and I basically did the same thing," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Got some good minutes for the main players so they get a good workout tonight. And then, at the very end, the young kids came in played "It was a good experience for them and good workouts for everybody else."

LeBron James
Who are the early contenders to emerge as 2018 NBA champions? - 1 day ago
The 2016/17 season tilted the way of the Golden State Warriors as early as the free agency when the California club acquired the services of Kevin Durant (6'9''-SF-88) from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The move not only greatly boosted the Warriors, but it also brought an end to the tyranny and champion-potential duo of Durant and Russell Westbrook - which pushed Golden State in the 2016 playoffs to a Game 7. Durant changed the game for the Golden State Warriors. Overnight, they became imme...   [read more]
