Gordon Hayward scored 27 points against the Bulls during a 105-96 overtime win on Monday with 12 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes.
He hit a clutch shot at the rim to tie it in regulation with four seconds left and forced a turnover on the Bulls' next possession. G Time also had one of the prettiest backdoor cuts leading to a jam of the season during OT (in link below). He's playing off the ball more, but its led to fourth-round value in January.

Gordon Hayward scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting Friday, adding five boards, two assists, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

Hayward didn't look for his shot much this game with Derrick Favors and Rodney Hood doing the heavy lifting on offense, but that's not a trend that's likely to continue. He's been a top-40 player over the past month, and he should have no trouble closing out the season as an early-round guy.
Jan 30 - 12:31 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 21 points with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

The Jazz actually went without a point guard for a little bit, which helps explain the assists for Hayward. He's cracking top-50 value in January and could hang in the fourth- and fifth-round range going forward.
Jan 22 - 11:43 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 27 points in an OT loss at New York on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-19 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Hayward scored 33 points the last time he visited Madison Square Garden, and he's one of many players who get some extra pep when playing at MSG. His efforts couldn't prevent the Jazz from falling to 6-15 on the road this season, however, and they're in a virtual three-way tie for the No. 8 seed out West.
Jan 20 - 11:44 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 14 points with five boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer on Saturday vs. the Lakers.

He got some much needed rest in the fourth quarter because the game was a blowout, playing just 29 total minutes. Hayward shot 6-of-15 from the field with just one turnover, and even with this quiet performance he is averaging 22.6 points per game over his last five games. The Jazz will now hit the road for a four-game road trip that begins in Charlotte on Monday.
Jan 16 - 11:14 PM

Gordon Hayward made 4-of-17 from the field for 21 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 37 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

He missed all nine shots from the field in the first half for his worst half of his career -- he went 0-of-8 in a half on Jan. 30, 2012. Hayward made 13-of-16 from the line for a career high in free throw attempts and was very aggressive in this game. He still hasn't seen an uptick even with Derrick Favors (back, hip) out with just fifth-round value in his last 15 games.
Jan 15 - 12:52 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 25 points on 10-of-21 shooting in Sunday's win over the Lakers.

He added two boards, two assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer, and only turned the ball over once after finishing with eight turnovers in Saturday's win over the Heat. Hayward is averaging 22.4 points, 3.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 3-pointers over his last five games, but he only returned late-round value in 9-cat during that span due to a high number of turnovers (4.8 per game). The Jazz had five games this week, but they're now off until Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.
Jan 11 - 12:43 AM

Gordon Hayward went off for a season-high 34 points on 14-of-22 shooting in Saturday's win over the Heat, adding four boards, one assist and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He did have a rough first half and finished with a total of eight turnovers and shot just 4-of-10 from the line, but his 18-point third quarter was the reason the Jazz were able to pull away. Hayward has a ton of responsibility on his shoulders with both Derrick Favors (back) and Rodney Hood (ankle) on the shelf, so he is an intriguing DFS target for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.
Jan 9 - 11:49 PM

Gordon Hayward scored 18 points during a 123-98 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

This is actually a decent game for Hayward against the best defense in the league. Basically, this whole game gets thrown out because of garbage time. Hayward gets a much better matchup against the Rockets on Thursday.
Jan 7 - 12:40 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 20 points on 7-of-18 shooting in Monday's loss to the Rockets.

He also added seven boards, three assists, three steals, one block, three 3-pointers and five turnovers to complete his full nine-cat line. He is still not shooting the ball well as he is just 39.0 percent from the field over his last five games, but his fantasy arrow is pointing up with Alec Burks (ankle) sidelined until after the All-Star break. He needs to cut back on the turnovers, though.
Jan 5 - 12:32 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 14 points vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday on 5-of-10 shooting.

He did add five boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes, but he took a backseat to Rodney Hood (32 points) in this one. Both Hayward and Hood are going to run the offense with Alec Burks (ankle) out until after the All-Star break, so keep them locked and loaded in all lineups.
Jan 3 - 12:43 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 23 points on 8-of-19 shooting in Thursday's win over the Blazers, adding 10 boards, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

It was his second double-double of the campaign, and this was also the sixth time that he has hit four or more 3-pointers this season. Along with Rodney Hood and Trey Burke, Hayward will take on a larger role in the offense with Alec Burks (ankle) on the shelf, and he could be a top-50 guy moving forward.
Jan 1 - 12:28 AM

Gordon Hayward made just 4-of-9 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line for 14 points against the Wolves on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

It was a big surprise to see such little usage out of Hayward tonight. He scored at least 24 points in three of his last four games and he's come on strong in December, posting third-round value in standard leagues. That is a little inflated due to injuries, so expect Hayward to be more of a fourth-round guy going forward.

Gordon Hayward scored 24 points in a win over the 76ers on Monday with six boards, four assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He shot just 6-of-21 from the field, but it's obvious that he is going to be a lot busier on the offensive end with Alec Burks (ankle) likely out until after the All-Star break. He could be a top-50 guy the rest of the way.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 02:16:00 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 28 points with six boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in Saturday's loss to the Clippers.

He scored just eight points vs. the Warriors on Wednesday, but Hayward was forced to step up tonight with Alec Burks (concussion, ankle) and Rodney Hood (glute strain) both picking up injuries. The Jazz have lost six out of their last eight games, but they get to look forward to a matchup with the 76ers on Monday.
