Derrick Favors dealt with foul trouble in his Pelicans debut, managing just 21 minutes in an overtime game on Tuesday in which he posted just six points (3-of-6 FGs), seven rebounds, two assists and a block.
Foul trouble didn't appear to be the only reason for the low minutes though, as the Pelicans went with Jahlil Okafor down the stretch in the fourth quarter of this nail-biter (3-for-3 FGs, 2-for-3 FTs, eight points, two rebounds, one block in 12 minutes). Favors has a history of starting, yet playing fewer than 30 minutes a night. This isn't an encouraging start for those that predicted a breakout. Expect him to get over 25 minutes on a nightly basis, though.
