Utah Jazz-Boston Celtics: Report card--Deseret News

BOSTON — A Jazz rally to recover from a too-long slow start came up short Wednesday night in Boston. Utah (27-24) was led by Gordon Hayward with 19 points, while the Celtics (28-22) were bolstered by Kevin Garnett's 23 points and 10 rebounds.
Forwards: Gordon Hayward and Paul Millsap combined for 35 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, though Paul Pierce and Brandon Bass combined for 39 for the Celtics. However, the Celtic duo collectively shot 13-of-33. Millsap has scored in double figures for 16 straight games. GRADE: B

Second-year forward Gordon Hayward was by far Utah’s best asset. He collected a team-high 19 points, recorded seven rebounds and dished out five assists, all while contributing tight defense and delivering two monster blocks during a thrilling five-second burst.

But Hayward saw the same problems Harris did. The Jazz walked on the hardwood wanting to prove they belong among the NBA’s top 10 squads. They left Boston knowing an aging Celtics team has learned invaluable lessons it could take Utah years to achieve.

Morning Five: 03.29.12 Edition--Rush The Court

It appears that Tulsa may be on the verge of announcing Danny Manning as its next head coach, but the school has issued a statement claiming that nothing is final although we suspect that they are just working out the minor details of the contract based on what we have been hearing. Mississippi State does not appear to have been as successful in its coaching search so far as they were rebuffed by Valparaiso coach Bryce Drew. Drew withdrew his name from consideration yesterday and stated that he plans to stay at Valparaiso where he took over a year ago. His decision means that he will at least be the coach at Valparaiso for a longer period than his brother Scott, who left the program after one season to become the coach at Baylor.
