Jazz face offensive questions, Nuggets in opener

SALT LAKE CITY -- Replacing an All-Star is never easy to do. For the Utah Jazz, it means creating a new offensive identity this season.

Gordon Hayward signed with the Boston Celtics as a free agent in July after carving out a niche as Utah's primary scorer over the past few seasons. Now the Jazz, starting with their season opener against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, must construct new roads on offense to fill the void Hayward left behind.

Hayward averaged a career-best 21.9 points on 47.1 percent shooting in his final season in Utah before signing a four-year, $128 million deal with the Celtics over the summer. In his Boston debut Tuesday, he fractured his left tibia and dislocated his left ankle.
