No place like home for Hayward

Gordon Hayward's 32 points on Saturday upped his home scoring average to 23.1 PPG. Hayward is one of two players (along with DeAndre Jordan) to play at least 30 homes games over the last five seasons and increase his home scoring average each year, notes the Elias Sports Bureau.

Jazz PG George Hill will miss his third consecutive game Monday against the Lakers due to his sprained left toe, a source said. Utah is hoping George can return either Tuesday against the Suns or Thursday against the Warriors.
