Derrick Favors played 29 minutes in a road loss to the Celtics on Tuesday, but did finish with 12 points (5-of-10 from the field, 2-of-2 from the line), six boards and seven assists.
Just last night coach Snyder started Boris Diaw in the second half, but he was never really in jeopardy of losing his job to Diaw. Before this game, Favors was averaging 5.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 1.1 blocks on 37.3% from the field in only 17.8 minutes. Hopefully, he can carry some of this momentum to finish off the Jazz’s five game week.
