• Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors was largely ineffective in a tight loss to the Jazz on Thursday, playing 28 minutes but only taking three shots, scoring two points and grabbing eight boards.

    Favors did show up on the defensive end with three steals, but wasn't involved in the offense at all as Rudy Gobert patrolled the paint and didn't do Favors any favors on that side of the court. Fellow big man Jaxson Hayes was also limited offensively, with just two points on two attempts to go with his seven boards. This is probably a matchup blip going against one of the premier rim protectors in the league and the Pelicans' big men should be more effective in the next contest.
