Excerpts from a postgame interview Saturday with Jazz forward Gordon Hayward.On dealing with losing as a professional: I hate losing more than anything. More than anything. I've kind of been lucky enough to not have ever lost. So, it's definitely frustrating to me. Very, very frustrating. But it is what it is. You've just got to work to improve on it each day and just try to learn from your situations, so that way you can hopefully not lose as much. Like you said, there's no way around it. Sometimes you have to go through that: take a couple steps back, take a couple steps forward. It sucks. Losing is no fun. Definitely tomorrow on the day off, I'll get some more shots up. You've got to control what you can control. I was 1 for 9, so that's got to be better. I'll get some shots up and go out the next game.Brian T. SmithTwitter: @tribjazz
