Derrick Favors gave a glimpse of what he can do in starter's minutes Wednesday, double-doubling with 17 points (6-of-11 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws) and 15 rebounds. Favors played 38 minutes and added three assists and three blocks.
Favors picked up the start for the injured Paul Millsap, who sat with a sprained left ankle. No word on his timetable for return. Favors is owned in 59 percent of Yahoo leagues and was a popular stash before the trade deadline. This is likely only a tease of what's to come, say next season (Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are free agents int he summer and one or both could leave).
The Jazz fell 102-91 to the Atlanta Hawks. Al Jefferson also double-doubled with 26 points (12-of-22 field goals and 2-of-7 free throws) and 11 rebounds.
