So, Corbin did something he hasn’t yet been forced to do in games: He put Gordon Hayward in at center.

"He did pretty well," said Enes Kanter, whom Hayward defended. "He’s pretty strong."

Not quite strong enough, though. Mo Williams said the Jazz defense had to call a travel on Kanter "even though it wasn’t a travel. We had to help him out a little bit."

Hayward was sheepish about his role.

"I was mainly just a screener," he said. "They needed me for defense, blocking shots, that sort of stuff."
