Derrick Favors scored 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting (8-of-10 FTs) with 14 rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in Sunday’s road win over the Kings.
Favors and Gordon Hayward (27 points, four threes, four rebounds, three assists, one steal, 5-of-5 FTs) faced little resistance and as you guys already know as long as George Karl is coaching the Kings you’re going to fire your assets up against them. Rudy Gobert was the only exception because he got the DeMarcus Cousins treatment, and had just eight boards and two assists to go with goose eggs everywhere else before he fouled out. Gobert played just 22 minutes as his nightmare season continues. Rodney Hood (back) logged 35 minutes with 12 points and a low-end stat line in the win.
