Derrick Favors played 32 minutes and scored 17 points on 7-of-12 field goal tries in Saturday’s win over the Magic.
Favors’ playing time has steadily been rising over the last two weeks, but the production remains inconsistent. In his last seven games, Favors has failed to post double digit scoring lines in consecutive games despite the 25-minute or more allotments in all those contests. If Favors can string together a week or two of consistent lines, he’ll be a solid sell-high candidate with his statements about how troublesome his knee has been. For right now though, owners must hold and keep their fingers crossed for more nights like this.
