Jefferson nearly registered his third straight game with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds but left the game with six minutes remaining with a mild groin strain and did not return.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 13 points and 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who have won back-to-back games for only the third time this season.
The Hornets targeted Hayward this offseason as top restricted free agent, signing him to a seven-year, $63 million contract offer sheet.
 Gerald Henderson and Walker both knocked down 3-pointers to help the Hornets build the lead back to 21 with 3:23 left in the game and the Jazz never challenged again.
Stephenson missed his second straight game with a groin injury and coach Steve Clifford said he will be out at least through Christmas.

After all the negative things Jay Gruden has said about Robert Griffin III, the Washington Redskins' coach found some positives to discuss after the quarterback earned his first complete-game win in more than a year.
Back as the starter because of an injury to Colt McCoy, Griffin threw for 220 yards and led the drive that resulted in Kai Forbath's 26-yard go-ahead field goal with 5 seconds left Saturday night.
Wins have been few and far between in Gruden's first season as an NFL head coach:
Griffin still looked a bit awkward and unsure at times, and threw an interception in the fourth quarter, but there were flashes of improvement as a drop-back passer.
The Redskins certainly got plenty of help from the Eagles (9-6), who now have lost three games in a row and will be out of the hunt for a postseason berth if NFC East leader Dallas beats Indianapolis on Sunday.
Injured Redskins included LT Trent Williams (re-aggravated right shoulder) and LB Trent Murphy (broken bone in right hand).
Morgan State's Blake Bozeman was called for a personal foul and technical foul on the same play with 3:02 left, sending Richards to the foul line.
Emmy Andujar added 16 points, six assists and five rebounds for Manhattan and broke a scoring drought of over six minutes on a layup with 4:25 to go.
