Utah Jazz: Anthony Davis provides another daunting challenge for Derrick Favors, Jazz bigs

Save for a relaxing Thanksgiving, the past few days havent been all that kind to Derrick Favors. It began on Monday with the Utah Jazz power forward facing off against Serge Ibaka, the Oklahoma City Thunders shot blocking, jump shooter. Wednesday brought Blake Griffin, who has improved so much with the Los Angeles Clippers that he may actually be one of the top five overall players in the league. Favors said he enjoyed his holiday, which is good, because it doesnt get any easier. When the Jaz... img src="http://mngislctrib.112.2O7.net/b/ss/mngislctrib/1/H.17--NS/0?pageName=RSS" height="1"...

Utah Jazz: Coming of age, Derrick Favors is enjoying career season

The final shot of Derrick Favors’ shootaround on Friday morning was glorious, the kind of shot he may tell his twin daughters about someday when explaining to them how good their old man was at basketball. Taking a pass from a teammate well beyond the 3-point line, Favors shimmied, then launched a turnaround jumper to the ceiling. 27 feet later, the ball hit the backboard and nestled softly through the hoop. While the rest of the Utah Jazz players looked on, Favors simply raised his arms and sat... img src=http://mngislctrib.112.2O7.net/b/ss/mngislctrib/1/H.17--NS/0?pageName=RSS...

Utah Jazz 97 - Atlanta Hawks 96 Game Recap: Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert are too big, yo

The Jazz end up winning one on their road trip against the Top of the East (+ Orlando) The Utah Jazz (5-5) return to .500 after handing the Atlanta Hawks (8-4) their THIRD HOME LOSS of the season. Utah played pretty loose in the first quarter, and took a lead. However, the Hawks are masters of never giving up, and turned up the defensive pressure which turned up the pace. In transition they got back into it after Utah coughed it up 14 times in the first half. Derrick Favors was taking it to Paul Millsap, but he was saddled with early foul trouble. With him out of the game the refs decided...

Utah Jazz bigman Derrick Favors is the heart and soul of this team, but he needs help - Downbeat #1672

We messed up and there wasn't a Downbeat yesterday. This is all my fault, so I am pulling a Tracy McGrady here.("It's on me.") As a consequence, there's going to be a lot of content on the site today -- it's a game day after all -- but I am certain that you rabid Utah Jazz fans will not be upset. There's a lot to look over, so let's get to it! First of all, in a Utah Jazz world where Rudy Gobert cannot play in games we get a chance to see just what our front court rotation is like. Derrick Favors is, frankly, our best player. Some saw it early, most of us only saw glimpses. But right...

Five Stars: Heat 92, Jazz 91

Miami wins their third straight contest despite a First Star performance from opposing big-man Derrick Favors. First Star Derrick Favors (UT) 30.4 Favors led all players with 39:45 and tied Chris Bosh with a game-high 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting. He went five-of-seven from the foul stripe and made it a double-double with 12 rebounds (five offensive). He added seven blocks, three steals, and two dimes. His plus-11 rating led Utah for the night. You want to win, but at the same time to get the effort that we got tonight you can't be too upset with some of the performances that some of...

Utah Jazz 89 Memphis Grizzlies 79 Game Recap: Trey Burke scores 24 in big win

Late game recap is late. The Utah Jazz (4-2) won their first home game of the season last night by defeating the Memphis Grizzlies (3-4) 89-79. It was a spectacular game for many reasons, none bigger than the fact that our very own Layton Shumway was in attendance. (Check out his twitter, y'all!) There were other reasons as well, to be sure. It's always fun when Marc Gasol and Rudy Gobert face one another, either for their National teams or at the NBA level. Both guys are very competitive and had huge impacts upon how this game went. It was also a very special game because Gordon Hayward...

Utah Jazz vs Memphis Grizzlies Game Preview: Five things to watch

Game #6: Grizzlies (3-3) @ Jazz (3-2) Location: Vivint Smart Home Arena • Salt Lake City, UT Time: 7:00 p.m. (MT) TV: ROOT Sports and NBA TV • Radio: 1280 AM / 97.5 FM Tonight the season rolls on with home game #2 for our lovely, young, strong, and handsome Utah Jazz (3-2). They tip off against the Memphis Grizzlies (3-3), a powerful bear of a team that has been a Western conference playoffs mainstay for many years. I've been sick on twitter all day, so this is not going to be the most comprehensive game preview of all time. Yet, I will still write it. . 1. Recent Play: I actually can't...

Utah Jazz bigmen Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert are ridiculously good right now

Have we ever seen this kind of production from the 4 and 5 at the same time? Sure. I know. Small sample size theater as we look at Utah Jazz stats after five total games. I get that. I'm not upset, though. We all should be encouraged at how well Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert have looked so far early on in the season. They aren't getting easy buckets, but they are still killing teams to a combined 23.0 ppg, 20.6 rpg, 2.4 apg, 2.6 spg, and 5.2 bpg as a starting front court. If you look at the fact that Derrick Favors played the last two games with the flu (and only half of the last game,...

Utah Jazz notes: Derrick Favors not taking sick days

Denver • If Derrick Favors worked in the cubicle next to yours, you would have been beyond annoyed to see him show up to the office Wednesday. “I had to keep blowing my nose all the time. I had to go in the back and get tissues and stuff to get the mucus out,” he said. “It’s nasty stuff.” But when Favors, 6-foot-10 power forward and rising NBA star, is the guy in the locker next to yours, you’re glad to see him there. And despite dealing with “flu-like symptoms” the past few days, Favors isn’t t...
