Rookie Gordon Hayward gets first start
Hayward played 22 minutes, registering four points, two assists and a steal.
"I want to give him a chance to play a little bit, get some experience," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said of Hayward, before the rookie made his first NBA start. "He has athletic ability, but this game will screw with your head a little bit. You're in constant learning mode."
Hayward's most extensive action came in a loss to Phoenix on Oct. 28 when he played 25 minutes and scored six points and added six rebounds.
