You read that headline right. And in case you don’t believe it, the game tape doesn’t lie.
As you could imagine, Hayward wasn’t to thrilled with West’s school-yard antics.
“I wanted to fight right there, but you can’t do that…It wouldn’t have been the smart idea. I’d risk getting a technical foul, getting suspended for the season, whatever. There’s more important things than fighting someone out on the court.”
What’s strange is that Hayward did nothing to even warrant a cheap shot, let alone a wet willie.
But Hayward, who raised both arms and walked away, said he “got the last laugh” as the Jazz prevailed 123-121 to keep their slim playoff hopes alive with four games remaining.
