"I felt good," said Hayward, the Jazz's No. 9 overall pick in June's NBA Draft. "I think I took a lot from this game, and it was a good first game for me. I'm looking forward to the next one (and) with each game it will get better."
The Jazz also got some strong outings by two guys hoping to re-win spots on the roster as sparkplug Sundiata Gaines had eight points and energizing Othyus Jeffers had seven points.
Interestingly, Price was the first point guard off the bench to spell Williams. Veteran Earl Watson didn't even play until the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Millsap looked like he's more than ready to assume the power forward role he's been groomed for behind Carlos Boozer the past four seasons. He had 14 points with several of his trademark hustle plays and eight rebounds in 22 minutes.
"(It) went OK," Millsap said. "Still trying to get a feel of it, get a flow going, get a rhythm going. But overall I felt we did a good job."
