Joe on song for hot Jazz
JOE Ingles matched his career high with 27 points and added a season-high seven assists to help the Utah Jazz beat the Boston Celtics 123-115 yesterday in Gordon Hayward’s return to Utah.
Hayward had 13 points and seven assists in his first game back in the city since leaving the Jazz in free agency after the 2016-17 season.
He broke his left ankle last season in the opener.
Donovan Mitchell added 21 points for Utah, Jae Crowder had 20, and Rudy Gobert finished with 17 points and 15 rebounds. Terry Rozier scored 22 points and Jayson Tatum added 21 for the Celtics as Boston lost for the third time in four games.
