Gordon Hayward took a pass in the left corner and quickly launched a jump shot.

In that moment, early in the Jazz's scrimmage Saturday at EnergySolutions Arena, Hayward showed there would be no long-lasting effects of his disastrous shooting performance against San Antonio in the playoffs.

Five months after an 0-for-7 night sent him and the rest of the Jazz into the offseason, Hayward's offense was Saturday's biggest story.

So maybe the defenders were a mixture of genuine Jazzmen and training camp temps, as opposed to the Spurs, but Hayward's performance was impressive. He looked a lot more like a player whose confidence grew from competing against the U.S. Olympic team this past summer than someone who was scarred by San Antonio.
