|Jan. 22 6:57 AM PT7:57 AM MT8:57 AM CT9:57 AM ET14:57 GMT22:57 7:57 AM MST9:57 AM EST18:57 UAE15:579:57 ET8:57 AM CTNaN:� - Hayward scored 27 points Saturday.

Analysis: Hayward has averaged 29.2 points in the last five games. When his finger got popped on a play late in the third quarter, Hayward became concerned with the stinger that followed. Hayward had fractured the same finger in the preseason and the injury had caused him to miss the first six games of the season. X-rays revealed no new break, so Hayward got it re-taped and returned to action in the fourth quarter.
