Hayward, Gobert Lead Jazz to 106-87 Win Over Trail Blazers
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Gordon Hayward scored 30 points and Rudy Gobert added 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Utah Jazz to a 106-87 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.
The Jazz controlled the game most of the night with a defensive effort that bottled up everyone not named C.J. McCollum, and the Blazers never found a consistent offensive flow.
On the other end, Hayward was an efficient 12 for 20 from the floor, including 4 for 6 from behind the arc. Gobert recorded his 57th double-double and continued to show his offensive growth in the pick-and-roll game. He also had three blocks and constantly altered shots in the paint.
The Jazz opened the fourth quarter with a 15-6 stretch to take a 90-70 lead that put away the game.
McCollum scored 25 for the Blazers and Damian Lillard finished with 16.
