Jazz-Hornets Preview

(AP) -- The Utah Jazz had notched just two victories away from home before embarking on a season-high six-game road trip.

After winning two straight to even the swing, the Jazz look to take three in a row for the first time since late in the 2012-13 season Saturday night against a Charlotte Hornets team they have dominated for nearly six years.

Gordon Hayward has led the way this past week for Utah (8-19), scoring 29 points in Wednesday's 105-87 win in Miami before finishing with 20 to help the Jazz beat Orlando 101-94 on Friday. He's averaging 19.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals - all career bests - while adding 4.0 assists.
