Jazz’s slide continues in loss to 76ers--Salt Lake Tribune

Sloan attempted to spark his dormant team with a lineup change, inserting rookie forward Gordon Hayward into the first unit and having veteran Andrei Kirilenko come off the bench.

The Jazz initially found a little life, avoiding another slow start and taking a 20-18 lead late in the first quarter. But Sloan said Hayward played just OK, while Williams acknowledged that the impact was minimal. And Utah was soon back to its non-winning ways, sporting a 76ers squad that Williams referred to as “a team with one of the worst records in the [Eastern Conference]” an endless series of uncontested passes and open looks.
