After he found out that he was no longer in the starting lineup, Gordon Hayward said he didn't view the move made by Tyrone Corbin as a benching. The Jazz coach insisted that was the case, too.

"He understand it's not like a demotion," Corbin said. "It's a thing where we can probably get a chance to go to him more with that second group, get the ball in his hands, pick up the tempo a little bit for us with the other group."

Hours later, Hayward went out and played a game that can be filed in the strong-actions-speak-even-louder-than-receptive-words category.
