Jazz fans raising money for billboard to show Gordon Hayward they love him (Ball Don’t Lie)

In his seven seasons with the Utah Jazz, Gordon Hayward has steadily grown from intriguing spot-starting swingman into one of the NBA’s best players. Jazz fans have watched Hayward blossom from a reedy 20-year-old fresh off a Cinderella run to the national championship game with Butler into a full-fledged All-Star whose per-game production puts him on the fringes of a conversation that includes the likes of James Harden, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

NBA Playoff Picture: The West is coming to order, but chaos still reigns out East (Ball Don’t Lie)

Note: The NBA featured just one game on Monday, so we’re adding it here instead of writing a whole new playoff picture update. The Blazers created separation for themselves last week in the race for the West’s final playoff spot, but a few more losses like this one — in a contest rescheduled from March 7 due to condensation on the court — could combine for Jusuf Nurkic’s leg fracture to create an opening for the No. 9 Denver Nuggets. For now, though, Portland can rest easy knowing that it had a chance to win on the last possession and lost to one of the more talented lottery teams.

A week after reports indicated the four-time NBA All-Star would indeed decline his $21.4 million player option for 2017-18 and enter free agency this summer, the Hawks announced Millsap will miss at least three more games with swelling in his left knee after undergoing a non-surgical procedure on Monday.
