Jazz fans greet Gordon Hayward with heavy boos during return to Utah

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

Joe Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help the Utah Jazz beat the Boston Celtics 123-115 on Friday night in Gordon Hayward's return to Utah. He was booed loudly during pre-game introductions.

Even during pregame layup lines, the crowd treated the prodigal wing harshly every time he touched the ball. One young fan held up a sign that read "wherever (you) go I'll follow". And now: "Game on".

Of course, Hayward was drafted by and spent the first seven years of his National Basketball Association career in Salt Lake City, only to leave the Jazz in free agency last summer and head to Boston.

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.

Utah's official Twitter account seemed more excited to welcome the former franchise face back than their fans did.

Utah opened the third quarter on a 17-6 run. "We just didn't have a presence out there, so they played freely". He has made 512 3-pointers with the Jazz.

But in hockey, there is occasionally a gulf between what you deserve and what you get. "You want to be in there and try to help". Oshie proved it once more when he curled around the left faceoff circle, saw an opening and darted toward the front of the net.

Terry Rozier scored a season-high 22 points, making his first start in place of Irving, and Jayson Tatum added 21 for the Celtics.

"I really just focused on some of our game plan execution stuff, which we didn't end up doing that great but I had my wife here, which was good to have her", he said.

Jae Crowder was also huge off the bench with 20 points, six rebounds and four assists against his former Celtics team. "I thought we actually did an OK job on the initial drives in isolation, but we didn't get rebounds in a lot of cases". He was out with the injury when the Celtics visited Utah in 2017-18. The Celtics gave up a season-high 35 points in the third quarter.

He had just four points in the first half, earning a cheer from Jazz fans when he airballed a shot from five feet with 9:12 remaining in the second quarter. Utah finished with 45-28 advantage on rebounds against Boston.

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