Deron Williams Gets on Rookie Gordon Hayward During Blowout Loss
The Jazz is 0-2 after getting blown out in back-to-back nights to start the season. They’ve given up 110 points in both games, falling to Denver on Wednesday night and Phoenix on Thursday. During the 4th quarter of Utah’s game with Phoenix Thursday night, point guard Deron Williams got on rookie first-round pick Gordon Hayward for not being in the right place and doing the right thing within the offense. Here’s the video via Hoops Notes:
If you were expecting something big, you were let down because that was pretty mild but it shows the kind of demands Deron has for his teammates. After the game, D-Will said “We don’t know the offense.” He also said his outburst at Hayward was “communication.” Sucks for Williams who has been used to going to the playoffs and winning every year he’s been in the league except his rookie season. What does he expect with half the Jazz now playing with the Bulls?
