Kyrie Irving on Boston's recent rough patch: "There's going to be times like this. And this is nothing yet. I guarantee it. It's nothing yet. But what we're facing is just we've probably hit a little fatigue, we've probably hit a patch where we need to kind of all collectively and individually just kind of slow down for a quick second, gather ourselves and move forward."

Does Gordon Hayward believe he can return this season? "My mind is open to that. I'm trying to get back as fast as I can. It all depends on how I heal. Taking it day-by-day, goal-by-goal. We'll see what happens."

Brad Stevens with high praise for Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell: "He's special. I think that word was out before the draft but then watching him play in Summer League was pretty eye-opening. ... Plus he's just got a moxie about him, he's got a way about him that people would say is beyond his years. There's also older guys than don't have that so it's not fair to say that. I just think he's just got that way about him."

Al Horford is back in Boston's starting lineup after a one-game absence for rest; Joe Johnson is available for the Jazz after missing the last 21 games due to a wrist injury.

Gordon Hayward said that, with the Jazz in town for Friday's game vs. the Celtics, he's hoping to meet up with some of his former teammates. And while he said it will be “weird” to watch his former team play his current one, Hayward playfully added, "I hope we beat them by 40."
