Jazz fans boo Hayward in return to Utah

Celtics takeaways Gordon Hayward’s playmaking a sign of his continuing recovery

The Utah Jazz and the Boston Celtics squared off Friday night in what was the first game for Gordon Hayward back in Salt Lake City.

Hayward returned to the Jazz's Vivint Smart Home Arena on Friday for the first time since he joined the Boston Celtics in free agency. He broke his left ankle in Boston's opener last season.

To be fair to Gordon Hayward, he's still working his way into game shape after missing 81 contests in 2017-18.

Terry Rozier scored 22 points and Jayson Tatum added 21 for the Celtics.

Boston lost for the third time in four games after allowing Utah to shoot a season-high 56 percent from the field.

Mitchell asserted himself from there, taking three shots and scoring four points in the final 42 seconds of the third quarter, although he was just 5-for-14 from the field and 1-for-6 from 3-point range.

Ingles did most of his damage in a scintillating first half, scoring 20 points on an astounding 8-of-9 from the field with four made threes as he became the fourth Australian-born National Basketball Association player to score 20 points in a first half. Mitchell ignited the spurt by draining three free throws and driving for a layup on back-to-back possessions. Derrick Favours kept it going with back-to-back baskets that gave the Jazz a double digit lead and finished the run off with a pair of free throws that put Utah ahead 75-57 just four minutes into the quarter.

The Jazz built their lead to 83-63 on a layup by Crowder before Boston rallied in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics scored on four straight possessions - culminating in Tatum's layup - to ignite a 15-4 run. Rozier nailed a 3 to cap off the run and cut Utah's lead to 100-96.

Boston got within four points four more times, the final time on a 3-pointer from Marcus Smart that made it 111-107.

Rudy Gobert quickly answered with a layup that pushed the lead back to six.

Crowder sealed it on a corner three that gave Utah a 117-109 lead with 47.7 seconds left. He finished one assist shy of matching his career high.

Jazz: Ingles made five 3s, moving him ahead of Deron Williams (511) on Utah's career list. He has made 512 3-pointers with the Jazz. Crowder had 20, and Gobert finished with 17 points and 15 rebounds.

But the Jazz had enough energy to finish off the victory.
