Hayward's sure shooting boosts Jazz
ORLANDO -- The Utah Jazz (2-2) were all smiles as they walked off the court on Thursday.
Not only did they dominate the New Jersey Nets (2-2) from start to finish in a 91-74 blowout victory, but their two featured Summer League stars continued to shine.
Kosta Koufos once again displayed improved confidence and a more developed low-post game as he racked up an efficient 14 points to go along with four rebounds.
Gordon Hayward -- the No. 9 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft -- continued to erase any doubts about his ability to succeed at the next level as he posted 11 points, while knocking down all four of his attempts from the field. The former Butler Bulldog is now averaging 10 points per contest.
"It's satisfying," Hayward explained. "It's the first couple games and you just want to go out there and get comfortable. The fact that I've been able to keep a little bit of consistency has been good."
While the Nets' Summer League squad was unable to find any consistency on the defensive end, Terrence Williams put on an impressive offensive show. The exceptionally gifted guard showcased his phenomenal athleticism with perhaps the day's top play as he exploded to the rack for a powerful one-handed jam with 5:45 left in the second quarter.
The No. 11 selection in the 2009 NBA Draft connected on 10 of his 20 shots and finished with a game-high 23 points and five assists.
Damion James followed up an AirTran Airways Orlando Pro Summer League season-high 30-point showing with a 13-point effort for New Jersey.
