Final NIT Bracketology - Uh oh!

Utah Jazz future still bright--Deseret News

Gordon Hayward: Selecting Hayward with the team's long-awaited lottery pick garnered mixed reactions from Jazz fans last summer. Like Favors, Hayward has shown flashes of what he can be as a pro player. He's smart, understands the game and can contribute on both ends of the floor.

I really liked what Hayward said after he scored a career-high 18 points against the Timberwolves on Friday night. He played well, but didn't want to talk about himself. That's a good sign for a young player.

"The win is all that I care about, and we lost, so it doesn't matter," Hayward said.

THE OLIVE GORDON?: Rookie Gordon Hayward and Jeremy Evans have gotten teased by fans and received all sorts of media attention — from the Deseret News, to the Washington Post, to The Jim Rome Show — for picking the Olive Garden over Little Italy or any of the hundreds of eclectic and gourmet restaurants in New York City last week.

On Friday, Hayward — who's been nicknamed O.G. and Olive Gordon by clever Twitter posters — tweeted a retort to his culinary critics.

Hayward: "To everyone talking about my dinner selection I have four words ... endless salad and breadsticks."

His tweet ended: "#enoughsaid haha."
