Utah Jazz: Derrick Favors wants to add assists to his repertoire

New Orleans • Quin Snyder preaches the importance of playing with the pass. That goes for his big men, too. So the Utah Jazz coach was plenty pleased with center Derrick Favors following Saturday nights win over the Sacramento Kings. Of all the things Favors did to help his team secure the win, the big mans career-high with five assists drew the most acclaim.
