The Utah Jazz weren't expecting much going into their home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. But after going toe-to-toe with the preseason favorites the Jazz got more than they bargained for after Gordon Hayward drained a buzzer beater to send the Cavs packing in another unexpected loss.

Nothing James could do

LeBron James finally had a pretty solid game, scoring 31 points after a rough start to the season. LeBron told the media before the game:

"I need to have a bounce-back game tonight, so I should have a good one tonight."

Although he did have a game up to his normal standards, it didn't matter as the Cavs went home with another loss and have fallen to a record of 1-3 early in the season.

Jazz delight

It was a good team effort by the Utah Jazz.

Derrick Favors recorded a double double getting 21 and 10 and Enes Kanter chipped in on the offense as well, recording 18 points. The player of the game however had to be Gordon Hayward, who had 21 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists, and not to mention the game winning buzzer beater.

What next?

When Hayward was interviewed after the game he was left speechless and had nothing but praise for the Utah faithful.

Although this was a great cinderella story for the Jazz, it was a nightmare for the Cavaliers. It looked like if there were a game for this team to get back on track, this would be the one.

It wasn't and although it's still early in the season, 1-3 is not an encouraging stat. With arguably the best roster in the league, the Cavaliers need to perform better and will look to do so when they head to Denver on friday.
